Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou ‘will look to bring forward Kyogo Furuhashi with him to Tottenham’ if he takes over as manager with Japanese forward seen as long-term replacement for Harry Kane
Ange Postecoglou will reportedly look to bring Kyogo Furuhashi with him from Celtic if he is appointed as Tottenham’s new manager.
Postecoglou is open to joining Tottenham, with the north London club looking to appoint a permanent boss following a challenging campaign.
Should Postecoglou head to Tottenham then he could be followed by Furuhashi, who scored as Celtic beat Inverness 3-1 to win the Scottish Cup and secure the domestic treble.
Furuhashi, who has scored 33 goals across all competitions this season, is seen as a partner, cover or a potential replacement for Harry Kane, according to The Sun.
Tottenham’s chances of signing Furuhashi would increase significantly if they bring in Postecoglou as manager.

Furuhashi has been prolific for Postecoglou’s Celtic side in their treble-winning campaign
Furuhashi, who has 16 caps for Japan, has been at Celtic since 2021, when he joined from Vissel Kobe.
The 28-year-old’s current contract at Celtic runs until the summer of 2025.
Kane has been linked with both Manchester United and Real Madrid, but Tottenham are in need of additional attacking options regardless of whether he stays or departs.
Richarlison endured a disappointing first season at Tottenham during which he scored just one goal in the league.
As well as Postecoglou, other candidates for the Tottenham job include former Spain coach Luis Enrique and Fulham’s Marco Silva.
