Spurs determined to keep Kane as Man City prepare ‘final move’ for striker

Tottenham remain determined to keep hold of Harry Kane, as Manchester City prepare their ‘final move’ to sign the forward before the closure of the transfer window.

Kane made his return for the north London side as a substitute during the 1-0 win at Wolves on Sunday, as Spurs made it back-to-back wins to open the new Premier League season.


The 28-year-old was afforded a warm reception from the travelling support at Molineux, despite the uncertainty surrounding his future with Kane having informed the club of his desire to leave and sign for City.

Pep Guardiola’s side are understood to have already seen two bids rejected for the England captain, though the Telegraph are reporting that the Premier League champions are set to return with their ‘final’ offer before the transfer window’s deadline on August 31.

Spurs remain reluctant to sell the forward however, with chairman Daniel Levy valuing Kane in excess of £150m – a deal that would break the Premier League transfer record set by Jack Grealish’s move to City earlier this summer.


There is no suggestion in the report as what the value of City’s final offer will be, though it has been suggested last week that they could be willing to meet Spurs’ valuation.

Spurs are understood to be focused on signing further additions before the transfer window shuts, with Nuno Espirito Santo said to be keen on a reunion with Wolves winger Adama Traore in the capital.

Traore impressed during the meeting between Wolves and Spurs this weekend and reports have suggested it could take a bid of around £40m to prise the Spain international from the Midlands.
