Tottenham 'line up three-man Harry Kane replacement shortlist with wonderkid and two World Cup stars' | The Sun

TOTTENHAM have compiled a three-man shortlist as they search for Harry Kane's replacement, according to reports.

Spurs' all-time record scorer confirmed his move to Bayern Munich on Saturday after nearly 20 years at the club.

Ange Postecoglou started life as Tottenham boss with Richarlison leading the line against Brentford on Sunday.

And Argentine youngster Alejo Veliz has also come in from Rosario Central in a deal worth £12million.

But the Lilywhites could yet add another forward to their squad before the end of the transfer window.

And according to Caught Offside, a trio of names are on their radar.

One of those is Lille star Jonathan David – who has contributed 58 goals and nine assists in 137 games.

The 23-year-old, who impressed for Canada at the World Cup last year, is thought to be available for around £55m.

Alternatively, Porto star Mehdi Taremi has also been linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Iranian scored two goals against England at the World Cup in Qatar.

And he has registered 80 goals and 49 assists in 148 appearances for Porto.

The report states he was one of the "preferred profiles" selected by the recruitment team as they sought a Kane successor.

However, it is understood their interest has cooled in recent times as Spurs "explore other opportunities".

The third and final man on the shortlist is Gent attacker Gift Orban.

He has attracted attention after scoring 20 goals in 22 games last season.

And Gent will reportedly consider bids from £25.8m.
