Chelsea FC News: Listening Frank? £150 million striker closes in on Stamford Bridge move after official announcement
Chelsea target Harry Kane has spoken about his frustration at so far failing to win trophies with Tottenham – and says he is prepared to leave if the team does not progress.
Now Chelsea may have Tammy Abraham as the clubs number one striker, but with constant reports suggesting that both Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi may leave the club in the summer, it will mean that Frank Lampard will need to sign a top-class forward.
Lampard knows that he needs to improve the side, he knows that he needs to add some superstar players to the side, and he also knows that adding a striker to the squad that could give him 30,40 or even 50 goals a season is just the thing he needs to get the club back challenging for all the major titles, with Kane on the shopping list.
With Spurs likely to miss out on Champions League football again this season, recent reports have claimed the England captain is unsure as to whether he will be able to take his career to the next level in North London under Jose Mourinho, and has been considering his long-term future at the club for some time now.
Kane has shown his loyalty to Tottenham by staying put for so long, but with the club in need of adding some big titles to the cabinet to keep hold of their biggest stars, the way things are going, Kane knows that he needs to have a serious think about his future, despite the fact that Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy will do everything possible to keep him, including offering a new £200,000-a-week deal.
However, he has come out and alerted the likes of Chelsea by admitting that he will leave the club in the coming windows if the team does not start progressing, he told Sky Sports news: “It’s one of those things, I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no. I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs. But it’s one of those things – I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re
progressing as a team or going in the right direction, then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better, I want to become one of the top, top players.
“It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever – but it’s not a no either.”
Now look, Kane is one of the best strikers in the game and needs to win trophies or his career may be seen as a failure, and even though Spurs fans would hate to admit it, they do not see winning titles under the former special one.
However, Levy would only sell Kane to Chelsea if he received an offer that was simply too good to turn down, which would have to be over the £200 million mark. But if a move happened, would Chelsea fans like him to be signed?
