ARSENE WENGER has told Spurs they may have to sell Harry Kane to pay for their new stadium.
The outgoing Arsenal boss signed off with a cheeky dig at his North London rivals over their star striker.
He believes the spiralling costs of the new White Hart Lane will have a huge impact on Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer dealings.
The Frenchman, 68, said: “In the last ten years prices for a new stadium have doubled and transfer fees for players have tripled, or even quadrupled.
“When we built our stadium a £10million player was huge. Today a guy like Kane, Tottenham can sell him for £100m, maybe more?
“So they might have to sell players to get more financial supply. That’s an issue they have to face.”
Arsenal borrowed £260m to build the Emirates in 2006 — and are still paying back interest.
Yet Wenger had to sell Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
Tottenham’s 62,062-seat stadium, which is due to be finished in September, is expected to cost £1bn.
Spurs are believed to have borrowed £400m and already operate on the smallest budget of the Premier League top six.
