Wenger: 'Spurs may have to sell Kane'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims that Tottenham Hotspur may be forced to sell Harry Kane in order to help with the costs of the club's new stadium.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur may find themselves in a position where they have to sell Harry Kane.

Since last summer, rebuilding work on White Hart Lane has been taking place ahead of a scheduled opening later this year, with the stadium said to cost somewhere in the region of £800m.

When Arsenal built the Emirates Stadium, there were ramifications in the transfer market and Wenger has claimed that Spurs could face a similar situation in the coming years.

The Frenchman is quoted by the London Evening Standard as saying: "The prices for the stadiums have doubled but the transfers of the players have tripled or quadrupled.

"A £10m player when we built the stadium was huge. Today a guy like Kane, I don't know for how much they can sell him. £100m? So they might get more supply, but they have to face it. Will they have to sell players? Even to Arsenal maybe."

Kane has previously been linked with a big-money transfer to Real Madrid.
