Next summer, Tottenham could lure Alvaro Morata towards north London to replace Harry Kane if the England captain departs.
According to Fichajes, Tottenham technical director Fabio Paratici could lure Alvaro Morata if star striker Harry Kane decides to leave the club next summer. The Juventus forward’s future remains undecided, and Tottenham could take advantage of his situation.
Tottenham might have successfully kept hold of Harry Kane at the club despite heavy interest from Manchester City. The club chairman’s huge asking price and the unwillingness to discuss a deal with Man City during the summer might have forced the striker to stay put for the time being, although the chances of him leaving next summer still exist.
There are growing concerns the striker may have fulfilled his time in north London and might again request to leave when he has two years left on his current deal. Whether it is to Manchester City or any other club remains unclear at this point, but Kane is convinced about a new challenge elsewhere.
Technical director Paratici has undertaken to bring in a fresh set of players this summer since his appointment. The former Juventus executive managed to sign several players, young and hungry for success. He has looked more intently towards Serie A for those signings and could continue his pursuit in Italy for a possible Kane replacement.
Paratici has Alvaro Morata in his sights as a possible Kane replacement if the England captain decides to leave next summer. The Spaniard, currently in the final year of his two-season loan spell from Atletico Madrid, has reasonable experience in the Premier League when he played at Chelsea for two seasons.
He managed a decent 24 goals from 72 appearances in all competitions before signing for Atletico Madrid. His time in the Spanish capital was less fortunate, but he still attracted Juventus’ interest, a club he played for two seasons before returning to Real Madrid.
Juventus have an option to make Morata’s deal permanent next summer, although there are doubts they would exercise the clause. The Bianconeri are looking at different profiles with Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus firmly placed on their radar.
They are also interested in Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic, who also is courted by Spurs, as the Serbian looks likely to leave next summer. If he decides to stay in Italy, Juventus are the preferred option, although heavy interest from Premier League sides could also do the trick.
These links are set to throw Morata’s future towards more uncertainty because it’s clear he does not feature in Diego Simeone’s plan at Atletico. The bigger question is whether he can successfully fill the boots of Kane at Tottenham if he is signed.
Next summer will surely be more interesting if Kane decides to leave and Morata gets another shot at proving himself in England. However, there will also be the question of Atletico’s demands for the player, as the Spanish international will certainly not move cheaply.
