Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has advised Manchester United to sign Harry Kane instead of Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen.
The Nigeria star Osimhen has 23 goals in 28 games for the Partenopeans.
His brace against Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 ensured that Napoli sealed their place in the quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s history.
While Harry Kane abilities are already well-known , Both players have been tipped to make a big money transfer this summer,
with Old Trafford touted as the most likely destination, while the Nigeria international is also linked to Chelsea.
There is much speculation and debate over which one would be better suited to Erik ten Hag’s tactics, and Henry has now weighed in.
‘Personally, if I’m Man United I go Kane because he knows the Premier League.’
‘Looking at Kane, this guy doesn’t need to adapt to anything.
He has a way of dropping deep that would allow Marcus Rashford to run in behind.
‘Kane can play anywhere, he can adapt to any team – well except Arsenal!
‘That doesn’t mean Osimhen is not a good player, it has nothing to do with that.
I think he’s going to go wherever he wants to go. He can adapt to a lot of sides and any league.
‘When you play for a team like Napoli, everything comes to him. But it’s a different ball game when you play in a front three.
Balls are not always going to you at big club with three big guys up top.
‘That’s what I want to see: How he reacts when he’s not the only focal point. But other than that he has everything.
He can hold the ball up well, he can run into the channel, he can finish well with his head, with his foot.’
Kane is Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer but is yet to win a trophy with them and that prospect still looks to be far off,
and with just a year left on his contract he could look to move away in the pursuit of silverware.
