Harry Kane has reiterated to Spurs that he wants to leave the club, according to Sky Sports, as Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are now on high alert.
Spurs are now going so far as to make enquiries about potential replacements, marking their first step towards acknowledging the fact that Kane could, in fact, leave.
Kane would prefer to stay in the Premier League, and is looking to have his future club sorted before heading to the Euros this summer.
Spurs are now making enquiries about replacement centre-forwards, in the first indication that the club are willing to consider the feelings of their 27-year-old talisman.
They do not want to sell their prized asset, but Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all been in touch with Kane’s representatives CK66 expressing a desire to sign the England international.
Kane has made no secret in recent interviews that he wants to compete for Europe’s top team trophies, having found them out of his grasp at both White Hart Lane and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
It is understood that Tottenham even persuaded Kane to delay plans that he harboured to leave last summer, after Jose Mourinho had replaced Mauricio Pochettino earlier in the 2019-20 season.
Spurs hoped their first full season under Mourinho would be a successful one, and they were top of the Premier League in December, but amid a Kane injury their form disintegrated and they are set to miss out on Champions League football again with a finish outside this year’s top four.
