Tottenham would struggle to replace Harry Kane should the striker leave the club, according to team-mate Lucas Moura.

Kane's future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been the subject of much debate in recent weeks after he opened the door for a possible departure, suggesting he would not remain at the club "for the sake of it" as he looks to win some silverware.

Manchester United have been linked with the Spurs captain in recent weeks, along with Real Madrid.

Kane, who is under contract to Tottenham until 2024, has registered tallies of 21, 25, 29, 30 and 17 goals in the last five Premier League campaigns, winning the Golden Boot twice as well as finishing top goalscorer at the 2018 World Cup in Russia as England reached the semi-finals.

His importance to Jose Mourinho's side is obvious - so obvious that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola once referred to Tottenham as the "Harry Kane team".

However, the club reached last season's Champions League final with Kane on the sidelines, with Moura the main beneficiary, scoring a memorable semi-final second-leg hat-trick to overcome Ajax in Amsterdam, only for the Brazilian to be dropped for the returning Kane in the final defeat to Liverpool.

Moura says he would love Kane to remain in north London, with the former Paris Saint-Germain man telling Sky Sports: "I want to stay with him because he's very important for us and it's not easy to find a player like him.

"Everyone knows he's a big player. He's very important for us, he's our striker and scores almost every game."
