Graham Potter is reportedly ready to make a shocking player-plus-cash deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.
Chelsea have struggled with their attacking options in recent years, and Aubameyang was brought in as a short-term solution on transfer deadline day, but the ex-Brighton manager may want to go in a different direction upfront.
Graham Potter “really likes” the England international and will try to entice him away from Spurs at the end of the season by offering Spurs manager Antonio Conte the chance to reunite with Lukaku, while the Blues will include cash in the deal.
According to the report, one issue that may prevent the Blues from signing Harry is that they have already made arrangements for Lukaku to stay at Inter Milan for a second season, though that option will be dependent on his league performances for the Serie A giants.
Kane’s desire to switch London clubs is another factor. Harry has just under two years left on his current Tottenham contract and has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich after failing to land a move to Manchester City this summer. The Bavarians have spoken with Harry Kane’s representatives about a possible summer transfer.
The Belgian centre-forward was arguably at his best under Antonio Conte, when the two won the Serie A title together at Inter Milan, prompting the London giants to spend £97.5 million on him.
