Tottenham brace themselves for Chelsea bid for Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is bracing himself for a Chelsea bid for striker Harry Kane this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The 29-year-old reportedly wants to leave Spurs this summer and several top clubs would like to take him.

Chelsea are in the market for a new number nine. Kai Havertz has been a disappointment when he has led the line this season.

The German forward has netted only seven league goals this season and has missed 13 big chances.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not performed up to his usual standards since his return to the Premier League last summer.

Romelu Lukaku is due to return from his loan at Inter Milan, but it is unclear if he will be welcome back at Stamford Bridge.

Kane is one of the strikers Chelsea are considering to reinforce their forward line.

However, the Blues are close to hiring Mauricio Pochettino as their manager. The Argentine has a strong relationship with Kane.

Kane played 242 games under Pochettino across five seasons. His appointment will only heighten Chelsea’s interest in the England international.

While Levy does not want to sell his prized striker, the feeling is that Kane’s contract, which expires in 12 months, will force him to sell.

Levy will not want to see Kane away for free next year when he can make money with a sale this year.

He may consider selling to clubs abroad, with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain interested in securing his services.

But Kane wants to stay in England and chase Alan Shearer’s Premier League top scorer record.

Levy does not want to sell to a Premier League club, much less a London rival.

Manchester United reportedly want Kane too, but they are wary of dealing with the Spurs chairman.

It is unclear where Kane will be playing next season, but he’ll be looking for a club where he can challenge for titles.
