In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Newcastle United man Steve Howey has been discussing Manchester City’s reported interest in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The Citizens are reportedly ready to splash the cash in the summer transfer window and Kane is one name who has been touted as a potential option, with Pep Guardiola no doubt looking to bring in a replacement for the legendary Sergio Aguero, who looks likely to leave this summer when his contract expires.
Kane has enjoyed a superb season so far with Spurs, contributing 13 goals and 11 assists in just 20 top-flight appearances, resulting in an outstanding 7.82 average rating – the best of any player in the Premier League.
Therefore, considering his superb form with the North London club in recent years, it seems fair to suggest that he would be an exceptional addition to this City side, should they manage to prise him away from the Lilywhites and Daniel Levy in the summer.
Asked if he’d like to see City sign Kane, Howey told FFC exclusively:
“Imagine how many goals he’d score at Man City. He’d score about five a game, the amount of chances he would get. He scores goals on his own, he creates his own goals. It’s basically like having four Heung-Min Sons in the same team. He would be absolutely lethal. For me, I think that he would be a better signing than [Erling] Haaland.”
Howey clearly rates Kane highly and seems to think that Kane would be even more prolific if he joined City, due to the number of chances they create.
He also suggests that he would be a better signing than Erling Haaland, who has also been linked with City, as he continues to star in the Bundesliga following his move to Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg.
Kane certainly boasts more experience in the Premier League than Haaland would, and whilst the Norwegian is clearly destined for an amazing future, it is difficult to see the England captain not being a huge success with City should he make the move to the Etihad next summer.
