Bayern Munich warned against signing striker target Harry Kane

German football legend Lothar Matthaus has warned Bayern Munich against signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

The lack of depth in the centre-forward position has been blatant this season, with Eric Maxim Choupo- Moting the only natural option, while Sadio Mane and Serge Gnabry have struggled to play as the focal point.

It cost the Bavarians dearly during the heavy defeat against Manchester City when Choupo-Moting was sidelined with injury.

Bayern have decided to invest in a top-quality striker this summer, with Kane’s name topping the wishlist.

The Bavarians have been monitoring the English striker’s situation at Spurs and are willing to break the bank for him.

Kane’s future has been the subject of speculation for years, and yet another run-of-the-mill season with Tottenham could lead to his exit this summer.

With his current deal expiring in 2024, suitors believe they stand a great chance to sign him this summer if he opts against an extension with the Lilywhites.

Before he resigned from the managing director role, Fabio Paratici reportedly held talks with Kane’s entourage over a new deal.

Bayern have been tipped as one of the potential destinations for Kane, but Matthaus is against the move.

“Harry Kane would be too old and too expensive for me,” Matthaus told Sky Sports Germany.

The German football pundit also offered his thoughts on Bayern’s striker search, recommending Victor Osimhen, Niclas Fullkrug and Randal Kolo Muani.

“Everyone is talking about Victor Osimhen for his sensational performance in Napoli,” Matthaus added.

“You never know if he can do that in Munich, but I think he would be a good fit.

“Randal Kolo Muani may need a little more room and space than a Bayern striker usually has, but he’s also good from the box and could work in Munich.

“The price-performance ratio could speak for Niclas Füllkrug.”

Osimen has reportedly become the priority target, with the Bavarians planning to commence talks with Napoli.

The Nigerian striker’s entourage are aware of Bayern’s interest, and head coach Thomas Tuchel is also keen on working with him.

Osimhen is ready to take the next big step in his career following a prolific season and would be open to joining Bayern.
