The future of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is already setting itself up to be the dominant topic of this summer’s upcoming transfer window.
The Spurs star, who was unable to help Ryan Mason’s side from falling to a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in their final home game of the season last night, has been linked with leaving the club this summer in order to try and fulfil his ambitions of winning trophies.
Despite reports earlier this week claiming that Kane had informed members of Spurs’ hierarchy of his decision to leave, football.london understands that he has not directly told the club that he wants to secure an exit, but would be open to a move if the opportunity came along.
Kane, despite having flourished in a Tottenham shirt in recent seasons and enjoying no shortage of personal success, is eager to add trophies to his CV, with Spurs now having gone more than 13 years without laying their hands on a piece of silverware.
The England captain has now, in a revealing interview with former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, admitted that a conversation is to be had with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy about his future.
“I think it’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club,” he said in the interview conducted during a round of golf last week. “Yeah, like you say, I want to be playing in the biggest games. The biggest moments.
“Like, this season I’m there watching the Champions League, watching the English teams in there doing amazing. They are the games that I want to be involved in.
“I want to be in them games. So for sure, it’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman [Daniel Levy]. I hope that we can have that conversation.
“I’m sure that he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career this moment in time.”
With Kane not ruling out leaving the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the coming months, speculation concerning his future is already rife.
At the time of writing, Manchester City, who will almost certainly be on the lookout for a new striker this summer with Sergio Aguero set to be leaving the club at the end of his current contract, are the favourites to land Kane, with betfair pricing City as the favourites at 6/5.
City’s cross-city rivals, Manchester United, are the second favourites at 7/2, whilst Chelsea currently rank as third favourites to sign the England striker at 15/2. Chelsea are poised to prioritise signing a striker this summer and Kane’s willingness to leave Spurs could put Thomas Tuchel on red alert.
Just behind those three, Paris Saint-Germain, who are managed by former Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino, are priced at 9/1.
