Juventus see Tottenham striker Kane as replacement for AWOL Higuain

Juventus are eyeing Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Corriere dello Sport says Juventus will turn their attentions towards a sensational move for Kane as current striker Gonzalo Higuain stalls on returning to Turin.

Juve's players are expected back next week to complete a 14-day isolation period before returning to training, and Higuain's persistent refusal could lead to disciplinary action from the club or even a contract termination.

The 'ideal replacement' for Higuain in Juve's minds is England captain Kane.

Kane recently suggested he is open to the idea of leaving Tottenham if they are unable to match his trophy ambitions and wouldn't stay at the club for the "sake of it".
