Antonio Conte wants to sign Harry Kane

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted he would love to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane, given the opportunity.

Despite splashing out up to £70m on Alvaro Morata, and being heavily linked with Romelu Lukaku, the former Juventus manager has admitted he would love to sign the England international.

Speaking about the Tottenham man, Conte said:

“If I had to buy one striker, I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker.

“For me, Kane, now, is one of the best strikers in the world. He is strong physically, with the ball, without the ball. He fights, and he’s strong in the air and acrobatic on the right and the left.

“If you go to buy Kane now, it would be at least £100m. At least. For me, if I see this price for a striker, I know for sure.

“He’s a complete player. He’s one of the top strikers in the world.”

However, despite the Italians admiration for Kane, it is highly unlikely that any club will make a move this summer, with Daniel Levy previously stating that he wouldn’t accept a bid of less than £200m.

Kane has won the Golden Boot for the last two Premier League seasons, scoring 35 goals in 38 appearances for Spurs last season, and currently has 99 goals in total for the club.
