Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing Andre Silva as a potential replacement for the England international Harry Kane should the player decide to move on as per Football London.

Kane was heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham during the summer transfer window but he ended up staying at the London club.

Apparently, Manchester City were keen on signing the England international this summer but club chairman Daniel Levy refused to agree on a reasonable price with the Premier League champions.

Harry Kane was reportedly keen on a move to Manchester City during the summer transfer window and he wanted to play for an ambitious club this season.

However, the England international has kept his head down and worked hard ever since his move to Manchester City collapsed.

The 28-year-old striker is undoubtedly one of the best in his position and he is likely to be linked with the top clubs once again as soon as the window reopens.

It is imperative that the London club plan for their future well in advance and Portuguese striker Andre Silva could be a quality replacement.

Silva signed for RB Leipzig during the summer transfer window for a very reasonable fee and the Germans are likely to demand a premium if the Londoners come calling for his services in the near future.

The striker scored 29 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt last season and then joined Leipzig in a five year deal for a fee of around €23 million.

 This summer was a golden opportunity to sign the Portuguese striker for a reasonable fee because of a clause in his contract and Tottenham could end up regretting the decision to let him join RB Leipzig instead.
