Paris Saint-Germain have not given up on signing Tottenham Hotspur superstar contract rebel Harry Kane this summer.
Spurs have been fighting to keep their headline performer since the start of the summer transfer window amid interest from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Kane has been the major talking point of Tottenham’s summer business, with the club rejecting two bids from Bayern, who are relentless in their pursuit of the talismanic striker.
Die Rekordmeister have not been rivalled for Kane’s signature, with other heavy spenders occupied by their various top targets this summer.
However, PSG have re-emerged as a strong contender to land Kane’s signature after initiating contact with Tottenham over a potential transfer.
Reports had previously emerged that the striker had no interest in a move to the French capital, having given Bayern his word that he would join if they can agree on a transfer fee with Spurs.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has a cordial relationship with Levy, and both parties have been in regular contact over a potential transfer, but a formal bid has not been lodged.
They are now trying to convince the player that a move to Parc des Princes would be good for his career, and will not make an official bid to Tottenham until they get the green light from Kane.
The first meeting between Al-Khelaifi and Kane’s entourage reportedly dates back to last month.
But the Ligue 1 champions have accelerated their efforts to sign the England international striker, who is now more inclined to an adventure abroad.
Levy is under pressure to sell Kane, who has one year left on his existing contract. Super-agent Pini Zahavi is also trying to convince Levy that it is in his best interests to sell Kane to PSG.
Tottenham want more than £100m for the club’s all-time highest goalscorer, and it is up to PSG and Bayern to stump up the cash.
However, the Germans currently have the upper hand in what is set to be an intriguing transfer battle.
