 Exclusive: Why Liverpool would be a better fit for Tottenham star Harry Kane than Man City or Chelsea with Reds told to strengthen up front in transfer window


Liverpool aren’t in the hunt for Harry Kane, but maybe they should be.

The Tottenham star’s £150million price tag, most likely to be met by Manchester City or Chelsea, is probably the biggest obstacle between him and a move to Anfield.

However, Danny Mills believes Kane slots into the Reds starting XI better than any of his potential suitors.

For numerous seasons, Roberto Firmino has played something akin to a false-nine role for Jurgen Klopp, sacrificing his own goal tally to create for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Kane is a striker who can do both, finishing the 2020/21 campaign top of the charts for both goals and assists after thriving in a deeper role at Spurs.

Questions were asked of Firmino during Liverpool’s failed title defence last season – and the Brazilian was dropped for Diogo Jota at one point.

Former Leeds and England defender Mills believes that is the area where Liverpool must strengthen.

“They should look to sign an out-and-out centre-forward,” Mills told talkSPORT.

“Kane would be them perfectly with the way he plays in that slightly deeper role, the nine-and-a-half position, where he drops in from time to time.

“If you had Mane going down one side, Salah going down the other, Kane in the middle – the chances he would create for them and himself would be perfect.

“He’s not going there, I don’t think. But it would be the perfect fit.

“Son is a fantastic player, but playing with two quality players either side of him, with Jota there as well, that would be unbelievable.

“In terms of a fit, that’s the best fit. Do I think he’ll go there? No.”
