Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane is reportedly being courted by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The long-serving frontman has just over a year left on his contract with the North Londoners, prompting questions over his future.
As things stand, Spurs will seriously contemplate keeping their main player if they do not receive an offer that fits their valuation.
However, their bargaining position has been undermined by their failure to qualify for the Champions League, which Kane desires at this point of his career.
With the money they will lose by not competing in that tournament, others argue that Spurs cannot afford to risk losing Kane on a free transfer in 2024.
Chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be adamantly opposed to transferring the 29-year-old to a Premier League opponent, especially as Spurs are in danger of dropping out of the top tier of English football.
Nonetheless, if Kane expresses a wish to go, the club will consider selling to a foreign club, and a transfer to France appears to be a possibility.
According to Foot Mercato, PSG are prepared to prioritise attempting to get Kane to move across the English Channel.
According to the source, football advisor Luis Campos has already met with the players’ agents to see whether a deal is feasible.
PSG are in a position where they need to improve their position with FFP this summer, and there is also a plan to shift their strategy and buy younger players instead of established ones.
Having said that, it has been rumoured that PSG want to sign a new number nine, especially because Lionel Messi is almost certain to leave Parc des Princes and Neymar might follow.
Hugo Ekitike is set to leave Parc des Princes once he formally secures a permanent agreement in the summer, leaving PSG eager for reinforcements.
If a foreign club puts together such a deal, Spurs may consider a sale in the area of £80 million, with any bid from Premier League rivals likely requiring to be higher.
