Paul Robinson has claimed a swap deal involving Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane would be “great” for Tottenham.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one suggested such a deal would be better for Spurs given Kane’s torrid injury record.
According to The Sun, Manchester City are prepared to offer Sterling and Jesus plus cash in their bid to sign Kane, 27, this summer.
It comes after Football Insider revealed the England captain told his friends he wants to leave the London club this summer.
Robinson heaped praise on the “world-class” Sterling and Jesus despite both players being bit-part players for City in 2021.
“It will be very dependant on what the new manager wants to do and how he wants to set up his team,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“Jesus and Sterling would be two fantastic additions to Spurs and it would really soften the blow if Harry Kane was to leave.
“Jesus is a world-class striker and Sterling is a world-class winger. Yes, he was in and out of the Man City team at the end of the season but he is still an incredible player.
“That kind of deal would go some way to filling the gap.
“It is important to remember the injuries Harry Kane has had. He has not played a full season in three or four years. His goalscoring record is amazing but he has bad ankles and has just recovered from a bad hamstring injury.
“If you get money, Jesus and Sterling that is a great deal for Spurs.”
