Phil Thompson has admitted that he would love to see Liverpool complete a deal to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.
The England international has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top strikers in recent seasons after having broken into the first team at White Hart Lane under Mauricio Pochettino.
Kane has been in good form already for Tottenham this season after having scored nine goals in eight games in all competitions for the north London side.
And former Liverpool star Thompson admits that he would love to see Kane move to Anfield in the future, because he rates him more highly than Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku.
Thompson told Sky Sports: “If I could sign on striker for Liverpool then I would probably go for Kane.
“I think his all-round game is slightly better than Aguero, Lukaku and Morata’s. The way he can drop into No 10 and move into the channels on either flank shows better understanding of leading the line than the other contenders.
“If he does fancy playing in front of the Kop then we’d certainly have him!”
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool could emerge as potential suitors for Kane in the next few years, but the England international certainly seems to be settled at White Hart Lane for the time being.
Liverpool were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Spartak Moscow on Tuesday night to leave them with two points from their opening two Champions League games.
The Reds will now try to get back to winning ways again when they take on Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.
