Julian Nagelsmann, the manager of Bayern Munich, has not ruled out a bid for Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur.
The Bundesliga champions are on the lookout for a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who was allowed to leave for Barcelona this summer after expressing his desire to do so.
Bayern Munich are said to be interested in signing Kane, with the German giants preparing a big-money offer for next summer, and Nagelsmann refused to rule out a move for the 28-year-old during a press conference in the United States.
“He’s very expensive that’s the problem – but brilliant player, one of two or three who can play as a centre forward [as well as a] No 10, but he’s very strong, brilliant with [his] head and both feet,” Nagelsmann told reporters.
“He could score a lot in the Bundesliga, I don’t know the price, but it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
According to a recent report, Tottenham have stated unequivocally that they will not entertain any transfer discussions for the Englishman during the summer transfer window.
Kane’s current contract with Tottenham is set to expire in June 2024, and the North London club are reportedly eager to begin talks about an extension, which would secure his future.
Tottenham came close to losing Kane last summer, with Manchester City attempting to sign him, but the Citizens were ultimately priced out of a deal.
“He is under contract at Tottenham. Sure, he is an absolute top striker, but that’s all a dream of the future. So let’s see what happens,” Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn recently told Bild.
