Tottenham Hotspur want Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram as Harry Kane’s potential replacements

Tottenham Hotspur are preparing for the possibility of losing Harry Kane this summer.

They have identified Borussia Monchengladbach striking duo Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram as his potential replacements, reports Le10Sport.

The French news outlet claims that Spurs greatly appreciate the understanding the French striking duo have struck on the pitch but are yet to make contact with the Bundesliga club.

Although Tottenham are ready to put up a fight in their bid to hold on to Kane, nothing is guaranteed, and they are preparing for the worst.

Plea and Thuram bagged 23 goals between them last season across all competitions and are among the best striking partnerships in Europe.

Spurs know replacing their star striker’s goals would prove extremely difficult, and they reckon signing two replacements could do the trick.

Given their importance to Monchengladbach over the years, prising two of their most important players away in the same summer could be impossible.

However, Tottenham would have enough cash to tempt the German club into selling if Kane moves on.

Plea and Thuram can play as number 9s and on both wings, and Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo would be delighted at the prospect of landing them.

However, the Portuguese would prefer to hold on to the England international team captain given his unrivalled quality in front of goal.

Manchester City have already seen a £100 million bid for Kane knocked back.

They are expected to return to the negotiating table after Euro 2020 with the player keen to leave Spurs.
