Recall, some months ago, according to All Football, Ariyo Igbayiola spoke to Nigerian newspaper The Cable and outlined his client’s ultimatum to Spurs boss Mourinho. He said: ‘We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry Kane be leaving? ‘If Kane is still playing for Tottenham will Victor play? Because he will always be benched for him. ‘Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain of England. All of these will always work for him in the club but at Victor’s detriment. ‘He needs a club where he will always play full games week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench”.Earlier this summer, Harry Kane was sold and they are yet to bring in a replacement. Hence, signing a reliable goal scorer could prove to be a wise decision for the Spurs. The former Everton winger, Richarlison has not been able to step up and fill the vacuum created by the departure of the England international. Hence, since Kane has left and Osimhen has proved himself in Serie- A, taking the next step in his career could be his best option. Tottenham could provide him with the best platform to showcase his talents against other best players in England.
