Japanese sensation Kyogo has been heavily linked with a reunion with Ange Postecoglou
Neil Lennon insists there’s no way Celtic goal machine Kyogo could replace Harry Kane at Tottenham.
Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has been touted to move for the Japanese striker should captain Kane join Bayern Munich this summer. But ex-Hoops gaffer Lenny has questioned whether prolific Kyogo would be good enough to make the cut in north London.Kyogo netted 34 goals as Celts romped to a world record eighth Treble under Postecoglou last season. And the Parkhead fans’ favourite refused to comment on his future yesterday when asked about a possible reunion with the Aussie in the English Premier League.
Lennon told the Daily Mail: “I have my doubts, yes. I don’t think for one minute that he could replace Harry Kane, for example, if that was to be the case.
“He’s a good player. I like his style. I’m just not sure he could play consistently at the highest level in the Premier League on a week-to-week basis.
“The other thing is that you’ve got Kane there at the minute, you’ve got (Heung-Min) Son, (Dejan) Kulusevski, Richarlison. These are world-class players that he’d need to break into if he goes to Spurs. I think he could play in the Premier League but maybe just not at the top end at the minute.”
