NEWCASTLE has been recommended to outbid Chelsea and Manchester City to sign £ 150m Tottenham star Harry Kane.
The 28-year-old English captain announced that he finally wanted to leave Spurs this summer in desperation to win some silver.
The North Londoners eventually hit Kane on the head at a price of £ 150 million.
But with Man City spending £ 100m on Kane’s English pal Jack Grealish and Chelsea £ 97.5m on Romelu Lukaku, Kane ended up going nowhere.
Newcastle has been linked to a number of big names – including – since its £ 300million Saudi-backed acquisition last week FOUR Outcasts from Manchester United and FIVE Serie A stars, among others.
And according to ex-toon star Darren Ambrose, they could take the lead in the race to sign Kane.
Ambrose told talkSPORT: “What about Harry Kane?
“Now I’m saying this because Manchester City or Chelsea will pay £ 100 million to £ 120 million in the summer.
“I don’t think it’s you. I think [City] went to around £ 130m this summer so Newcastle will.
“They will cost £ 150 million to £ 200 million.”
It is claimed that Newcastle can spend up to £ 200million in January without breaking FFP rules.
However, it is expected – once the new owners hire a new manager, with Frank Lampard in the running – they will have a transfer fund of closer than £ 30million.
But Ambrose argued, “Let’s say Daniel Levy pays another ridiculously high transfer fee that no one else is going to pay and Newcastle says, ‘OK, there is £ 150million’.
“Who has more chances of winning a trophy at the moment? Tottenham or Newcastle right now?
“Everyone will say [Newcastle] now because they are a project and ambitious. “
