The Reds legend would love to see the England captain replace Roberto Firmino at Anfield but cannot see a big-money raid on Spurs being launched
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Harry Kane would be “perfect” at the club, but he doesn’t believe any deal would get done as he would cost over £100 million ($142m).
If Jurgen Klopp had that kind of cash, then Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland would probably be favored in preference to a prolific Spurs frontman.
As a result, Carragher is disappointed, as Firmino could be taken to Merseyside, while Kane is currently weighing up his options ahead of a summer push for the exits in north London.
WHAT DID YOU SAY?
In his interview with The Telegraph, Carragher said: “Among all the clubs that could attract Harry Kane this summer, Liverpool is never mentioned.
“Under more appealing circumstances, Kane could slot effortlessly into the Liverpool team, ideally suited to a front three where he could play the dual role he has mastered as a slightly deeper center-forward who still scores as prolifically as a traditional number nine.
The Englishman can provide a spark up front for Liverpool, and would easily adapt to the position under Klopp after excelling under Mauricio Pochettino.
“I love what Roberto Firmino has done for my old club – and he has found goalscoring form at the right time in the last few weeks – but no one will argue against the fact Kane can do what the Brazilian does and more.
The Premier League player I admire the most right now is Kane, along with Kevin De Bruyne.
Klopp would obviously be interested in a transfer if he thought it was possible. Who wouldn’t?”
WHY ISN’T KANE AT ANFIELD?
Manchester United, Chelsea, and Manchester City are thought to be leading the hunt for Kane, with Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain also rumored to be interested.
Liverpool are not in the picture, with Carragher admitting that the 27-year-old is too costly for Klopp to consider.
“LIVERPOOL’S FAILURE TO PURSUE KANE UNDERSCORES HIS PROBLEM SINCE HE IS SEEKING A CLUB WHERE HE CAN FULFILL HIS AMBITIONS.”
“DESPITE HIS BRILLIANT ABILITIES, LIVERPOOL’S STANCE IS CORRECT. SUCH A COSTLY TRANSFER MAKES LITTLE SENSE.”
“Supporters are educated enough to know what represents a good deal, and any club thinking of spending over £100 million on an attacker will look at those in their early 20s like Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe or Borussia Dortmund duo Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho.
Is it really so unwise to try to move Kane at a bad moment in his career and in the transfer market, when there are so many potential world-class young forwards out there?
