Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has revealed the player that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly should sign instead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hasselbaink told Grosvenor Casinos: “I would have done Ronaldo for Chelsea in the summer, for one year, but obviously now I think the priorities are bigger in the summer.

“I would try to persuade Kane to come. That would be a very controversial move, but surely he’s going to want to win things. Surely he knows he’s not going to win with Spurs.

“Surely, he’s not enjoying the way he is playing at the moment and where he’s playing. I know they’re all doing the shift for the team, but the majority of the time, when they don’t have the ball, he’s 10 meters away from his own box.

“You know, so surely he’s not going to want to be playing like that for the next two or three years.

“Surely he would want to be with the club that is going to go for it and is going to try to win trophies or are going to be closer to winning the trophies, so for me, they should go for him.”

Kane has scored 261 goals in 408 appearances for Spurs and 51 goals in 76 matches for England.
