Harry Kane could leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, with Bayern Munich in pole position to sign the England star.

As a result, Tottenham are already eyeing a list of potential options to replace Kane. One of the names on Spurs’ list is Nigerian youngster Gift Orban. 

Orban on Tottenham Hotspur's radar

Orban is currently on the books of Gent, having joined the Belgian club from Stabaek in January 2023. 

The Nigerian attacker’s profile has been on the rise after exploding in the first half of the year. The Super Eagles prospect scored 19 goals in all competitions for Gent last season, despite only joining in January. 

Orban has already started the new season on fire, having scored two goals in two games for the club.

Tottenham are aware of these performances and are targeting him as a potential replacement for Harry Kane. 

According to the Daily Mail, Orban and Nottingham Forest’s Brenan Johnson is on the list of Spurs’ options. However, the LilyWhites may have to pay top dollar to bring the Nigerian to North London. 

Orban still has four years left on his contract with Gent, meaning the De Buffalo’s control all the cards in a potential move.
