StanStan Collymore: Tottenham should ‘break the bank’ to sign this Everton star

TOTTENHAM should “break the bank” to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, according to Stan Collymore.


Lukaku is the joint-top scorer in the Premier League so far this season, level with striker Harry Kane with 19 goals.

And former Liverpool forward Collymore believes Lukaku and Kane, both 23, would form the perfect strike partnership at White Hart Lane.

Spurs could be without Kane for the rest of the season after the England international was forced off 10 minutes into yesterday’s win over Millwall with an ankle injury.

Collymore believes Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to sign a striker to push Kane to the next level and another to provide cover for their star man.

Stan Collymore says Tottenham need cover for Harry Kane

He told BoyleSports: “They need to go big in the summer for two reasons on the striker front.

“One is back up obviously, but two may be even more important for Spurs and that’s to push Harry Kane onto better things.

“Kane is going nowhere for the next couple of seasons at least and maybe longer if the trophies start to come in.

“So go and break the bank and get someone who is arguably better than Kane, or at least on the same level, and you know who that would be for me? Romelu Lukaku.”

Collymore believes  could command a big fee for the Belgium international, who they signed from Chelsea for £28million in 2014.

He added: “Seventh is the summit of Everton’s ambitions for the next two seasons

That means that as happy as Rom is now, his agent may be getting antsy 12/18 months from now.

“At that stage Spurs can sell a new stadium, 60 thousand punters, increased revenue, possible regular Champions League football while Everton stay at Goodison and maybe struggle to break an increasingly high glass ceiling.

“Don’t get me wrong Evertonians, I’m not trying to sell your player, but look down the line two years, unless the Toffees win trophies which, with the competition above them looks unlikely, Everton could command big money for Lukaku.

“The old fashioned strike partnership is out of fashion currently, but I’m licking my lips at the thought of these two fine young strikers playing together.
