Chelsea Are Planning To Swap Two Players For Harry Kane In Audacious Transfer

Chelsea are ready to offer Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga in a player-plus-cash deal for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.


It emerged on Monday evening that Kane had told Spurs he was ready to leave the club and it sent the rest of English football into overdrive.

Manchester City and Manchester United have registered their interest alongside Chelsea and ESPN claim they're willing to offer their own stars - out of fear Spurs don't want to do business.

Daniel Levy has reportedly slapped a £150 million price tag on Kane and his contract isn't up until 2024.

The Blues are aware their London rivals would need to rebuild should Kane leave hence the offering of a forward in Abraham, who they value at £40 million.

Despite being a favourite under former manager Frank Lampard, Abraham has slipped down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.

He was omitted from the FA Cup final squad altogether and it saw partner Leah Monroe post a furious message aimed at Tuchel on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Kepa has lost his place to summer signing Edouard Mendy and made just 13 appearances all season.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been considered as an option to include in a swap deal.

There is bad blood between the two clubs when it comes to past transfers.

Chelsea were outraged at Spurs nipping in ahead of them to sign Luka Modric back in 2008.

Whereas Spurs were left blindsided when Willian decided to move to Stamford Bridge at the last second in 2013.

"There's definitely a conversion to be had with the club. I want to be playing in the biggest games, the biggest moments," the 27-year-old explained.

"This season I'm watching the Champions League, watching the English teams in there doing amazing - and they're the games I want to be involved in.

"So it's a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I'm at and have a good, honest conversation and I hope we can have that conversation.

"I'm sure that [Daniel Levy] will want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it's going to be down to me and how I feel and what's going to be the best for me and my career this moment in time.

"I mean, he might want to sell me! 'He might be thinking, 'If I could get £100 million for you, then why not?' Do you know what I mean? I'm not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.

"I hope we have a good enough relationship. I've given the club... well, I've been there 16 years of my life. So, I hope that we can have a good honest conversation and see where we are at in that aspect."
