Premier League

Why Tottenham should sell Harry Kane in the January transfer window

Harry Kane accepted his fate after Tottenham refused to negotiate with Manchester City who was willing to pay huge money to sign him. However, judging by his performances so far, it appears by insisting to keep him Tottenham now has a striker who is bodily present and absent-minded.

According to Squawka Football, Thiago Silva, Marcos Alonso, and Cesar Azpilicueta had more touches in the opposition penalty than the England International during Tottenham's Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

That is happening a week after the 28-year-old had no touches in the penalty area in the match against Crystal Palace. Since 2015/16, this is the first season he failed to score in his first 4 Premier League appearances.

Those are some concerning stats that show the England international may not be happy despite appearing to be. Former Manchester United player Roy Keane was critical of Kane's performance against Chelsea. He pointed out that his body language was not been right.

That is why most clubs sell a player that wants to leave. Chelsea did it when they sold Hazard to Real Madrid while Manchester United did the same when they sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid as well.

We know that Tottenham having a good or bad season depends on Harry Kane's performance. But with his body language appearing to show that he is not committed, there is no need in keeping him at the club. As we have seen, doing that will cost the club points in the league and as a result, they may end up not qualifying for any European club competition next season.

Another disadvantage of keeping the 28-year-old under the current circumstances is that his value will drop quickly considering that he will soon be 30 years old. Based on that Tottenham should consider selling him when the winter transfer window opens in January.

They can use the money to improve the whole team just like Chelsea did when they sold Hazard. I think Manchester City will still be interested given they've had 2 league matches where they failed to score. The first was against Tottenham while the second was against Southampton.
