Lucas Moura believes Tottenham would struggle to replace Harry Kane if they were to sell the England captain when the current season eventually ends.
Speculation has increased that the striker could leave the club at the end of the campaign, after he refused to rule out a future move away from Tottenham during an Instagram live session with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.
Kane is Spurs’ third all-time leading scorer and has contributed at least 20 goals in all competitions for each of the five previous seasons.
“It’s hard to speak about the future, about a negotiation because it’s a personal decision. I’m sure that every season Tottenham receive offers for Harry Kane,” said Moura, who joined Spurs in January 2018.
“It’s not me who has to decide, but of course I want to play with him in the next season. I want to stay with him because he’s very important for us and it’s not easy to find a player like him.
“Everyone knows he’s a big player. He’s very important for us, he’s our striker and scores almost every game. I’m sure that Mourinho wants to keep him. He counts on him for the rest of the season as well as for the next one.”
