Rumour Has It: Chelsea to use Kepa and Abraham to land Kane
Harry Kane's reported desire to leave Tottenham has created a race for his signature.
A lack of silverware is believed to be behind Kane's alleged urge to move on, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea the leading suitors.
In the post-COVID world where club finances have been hit hard, some clubs are getting creative.
TOP STORY - CHELSEA'S PLAYER-PLUS-CASH SWAP DEAL
Chelsea are launching a player-plus-cash swap deal to land Kane from Tottenham involving goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and forward Tammy Abraham, claims ESPN.
Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris is expected to leave the club, hence the lure of Kepa who has been back-up to Edouard Mendy, while Abraham, who is not a regular starter for the Blues, could help to fill the void left by Kane.
Kane is contracted with Tottenham for another three seasons and Spurs are believed to want a transfer fee of £150 million, so the addition of players would drop that figure down to an affordable level.
