Liverpool urged to make approach for Tottenham Hotspur forward

Liverpool have been told to beat Premier League rivals Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City to a transfer deal for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Kane, who netted four goals during England’s UEFA Euro 2020 campaign, informed his club of his desire to depart earlier in the summer.

The Citizens have emerged as the frontrunners to snap up Kane as they look to replace Sergio Aguero, who has signed for Barcelona, but the Red Devils and the Blues have also been linked with moves.

But ex-England defender Danny Mills believes Jurgen Klopp’s side, who finished third in the Premier League last season, should enter the fray for Kane’s signature and says he’d be ‘perfect’ at Anfield.

‘Liverpool should look to sign an out-and-out centre-forward. Harry Kane would suit them perfectly with the way he plays in that slightly deeper role, the nine-and-a-half position, where he drops in from time to time,’ Danny told talkSPORT.

‘If you had Sadio Mane going down one side, Mo Salah going down the other, Kane in the middle – the chances he would create for them and himself would be perfect. He’s not going there, I don’t think. But it would be the perfect fit.’
