“Chelsea are the more likely threat coming from the Premier League at the moment. They will look at Harry Kane for sure.
“Todd Boehly is very keen on showing Chelsea can bring in proven Premier League players, particularly attack-minded players.
“They want a marquee name from within the Premier League, they want to bring in someone to hit the ground running, look at Gabriel Jesus, how beneficial he has been to Arsenal.
“Jesus has just been able to transition instantly, Harry Kane would be able to transition instantly.”

“I’m focused on Tottenham Hotspur and trying to do my best for us.”
