The list for possible striker signings continues to grow as Barcelona has now been linked with Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

According to Sport, the club has been informed about the status of the England international and whether or not Spurs would be willing to sell.

The report states that Kane himself is considering possibly leaving his club at the end of the season. Should he come to that decision, Spurs would only be willing to sell him to a team outside of England.

If Spurs would only consider clubs outside the Premier League, then that would leave Manchester United and Manchester City out of the running. Both clubs have been linked to Kane in the past.

Kane has scored 17 goals and provided 13 assists in the Premier League this season. In the Europa League, he’s three and assisted two in only five games.

Seen as more of a traditional striker just a couple of years ago, Kane has developed his game to where he’s more involved in the build-up as evidenced by the number of assists so far this season.

The risk with potentially signing him is he has been plagued with injuries the past two seasons and does tend to get off to a slow start scoring-wise. Though that risk is alleviated somewhat given his other contributions on the pitch.

Tottenham and England striker emerges as another option for Barcelona.

At the moment, he’s viewed as another alternative to Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, who remains the priority for Joan Laporta. Kane joins Sergio Aguero and Lautaro Martinez as players Barcelona may consider if they cannot sign Haaland.

With the exception of Aguero, because of his age, it’s evident that Barcelona want to make a splash when it comes to who their next striker is going to be. The club is aiming high and would do well if they landed any of the names mentioned.

The question, which will be the question until their finances are resolved, is whether Barcelona has the money to make a competitive offer and beat out the rest of the competition.
