"Respond to City’s capture of Haaland" - Tony Cascarino names player Reds should sign

Former professional footballer Tony Cascarino believes that Liverpool should make a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland will be a Manchester City player as of next season.

The reality is, the Citizens have signed a world-class talent. Haaland, 21, has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances for the Bundesliga side.

With that being the case, Cascarino would like to see Liverpool respond to the aforementioned news by signing Kane.

As quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, he told The Times the following: “Signing Harry Kane would be the perfect way for Liverpool to respond to City’s capture of Haaland. Tottenham Hotspur are set to finish outside the Champions League places and if that happens Kane is unlikely to want to stay for another year.

“The England talisman cannot go to City because of Haaland’s move, Manchester United are not an option because they will miss out on the Champions League and Chelsea already have Romelu Lukaku.

“That leaves Liverpool as the only suitable destination for Kane — and he would be a great fit for (Jurgen) Klopp’s team.

“I could not think of a more perfect forward for Liverpool. Kane, 28, boasts an exceptional workrate, he can drop deep in the same way as (Roberto) Firmino, he scores all types of goals. He has the same humility as all of Liverpool’s best attackers, the DNA of Klopp’s side.

“Kane could outscore Mohamed Salah and provide the kind of assists he has for Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski this season at Tottenham.”

Liverpool have not been linked with a move for Kane.

Anfield Watch Verdict

Kane is a superb talent. The striker has found the back of the net 244 times in 383 appearances for Tottenham.

But, Kane, 28, is contracted until the summer of 2024 and valued at £90 million. Therefore, we would be surprised if the club were to make a move for the England international.

Fenway Sports Group, the owners of Liverpool, have never signed an ageing player for a big transfer fee. Only time will tell if that is to change.
