The White Hart Lane support crave success and there’s a growing belief that Antonio Conte could be the man to finally deliver it.

Rangers to welcome Spurs trio Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Richarlison

England international Harry Kane, 28, is widely regarded as one of the greatest strikers in the game and is so often a force to be reckoned with in north London.

A prolific goalscorer, Kane’s 247 Spurs strikes and 50 goals for England make him a genuine superstar and Rangers fans will look forward to the player visiting Ibrox.

Speaking of superstars, Son Heung-min is a criminally underrated footballer at the highest level and is one of the most effective attacking players in the Premier League.

Tottenham paid £22m to bring Sonny to White Hart Lane in 2015 and the Korean attacker’s influence has continued at the club’s new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

A global superstar and one of the most famous names and faces in Korea and the Far East, Son has 131 Spurs goals and 73 assists, forming a deadly partnership with Harry Kane.

And this is before you add Brazilian firebrand Richarlison into the mix, the former Everton forward adding even more firepower to the Tottenham Hotspur attack.

Impressing in the Premier League since joining Watford from Fluminense in 2017, the attacker represents a serious outlay from Spurs that their fans will be hoping is a serious message of intent.

The attacker has 48 goals and 18 assists in the Premier League since first moving to the division.

Rangers fans will be amongst the first to get a glimpse of this trio in action – if Conte decides to use them at the same time – and it’s an exciting prospect for the club’s supporters.
