Tottenham are looking to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City this summer.

The 24-year-old Brazilian has done well in the Premier League this season, and he has 14 goals to his name in all competitions.

Spurs could lose key star Harry Kane during the summer transfer window, and the Brazilian seems like a suitable replacement in theory. He is pretty young, and he will improve with time. Jesus has the potential to develop into a world-beater in future.

Kane has been linked with a move to Manchester City, and reports claim that the two clubs could press ahead with cash plus player transfer.

Apparently, Jesus is valued at around £70m, and therefore City could offer him and some cash for Kane, who will cost more than £100m. The deal would make more sense financially for the Premier League champions that way.

In a post-covid market, it will be difficult for any club to shell out in excess of £100m for a single player, and therefore, the cash plus player deal would be ideal. 

The 27-year-old Tottenham striker scored 22 goals and provided 13 assists in the Premier League this past season, and he is one of the best players in the world right now.

Spurs will not want to lose him ideally, but they could be forced to consider a sale if the player decides to force a move.

Kane is desperate to win trophies, and the reality is that Spurs are not in a position to challenge the Premier League just yet. Furthermore, they have failed to qualify for the Champions League as well.

Any top player would want to compete in the Champions League consistently.

It remains to be seen how the situation unfolds in the coming weeks.
