Tottenham will reportedly have to break their transfer record to sign Benfica star Darwin Nunez should the club let Harry Kane leave in the summer.

Spurs will be in the market for a replacement if their talismanic striker, who has emerged as a prime target for Manchester United, departs the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But Kane’s potential successor will not come cheap as Benfica have slapped a price tag of at least £69million on Nunez, according to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo. 

O Jogo reported the club are willing to slash his release clause of £127million to facilitate a deal for the 22-year-old Uruguayan – who has taken the Primeira Liga by storm, scoring 26 goals in 33 appearances for Benfica this season.

Super-agent Jorge Mendes is said to be scanning the market for centre-forwards that could replace Kane at Spurs – although he is acting on his own as he has not been told to do so by the Premier League club.

Nunez’s current agent Edgardo Lasalvia, whose deal with the player expires in the summer, will meet Mendes in Europe this weekend to discuss a potential partnership, O Jogo said.

Lasalvia is thought to be keen for a quick deal as he would be entitled to 10 per cent of Nunez’s transfer fee if he is sold before June.

Nunez, known for his penetrative passing, dribbling, finishing and long-range shooting, has caught the eye of several clubs following his superb campaign for Benfica.

Arsenal have reportedly made an approach for Nunez, while Newcastle and West Ham are also said to be interested.

Nunez has been a member of the Uruguay national team for two years and has been likened to compatriot and Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani.
