Newly promoted Italian club AS Livorno are in the market for a striker to help them stay up in Serie A this season. One potential target for the club is Tottenham Hotspur and England U-21 striker Harry Kane. Any deal for the youngster would be only a loan, because Spurs seem to be reluctant to part with Kane.
The report about Kane comes for Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. He doesn't have the best track record with these sorts of things and is really of those guys that throws crap at the wall and checks to see what sticks. As a a result I don't think I'd put too much stock in this new rumor.
Putting the source aside for a second, Kane would certainly work well for Livorno. He would definitely get some playing time and Serie A is a much stronger league than the Championship (obviously). Livorno have some decent strikers on their books already in Federico Dionisi, Luca Silligardi and Paulinho. Combined they scored 54 goals last year, but none of them are particularly big or effective as a target striker. The addition of Kane would add some size and strength to the Livorno attack.
If this were anything other than a B.S. rumor it would be great. Honestly, thiis is the kind of loan that could really help Kane's development and the type of loan that Spurs should be looking at for more of their promising young players.
