According to a report by The Sun, Tottenham striker Harry Kane is now ready to ask chairman Daniel Levy to consider offers for him this summer.
The Lowdown: Kane exit saga continues…
The Athletic first caught wind of Kane’s potential desire to leave Spurs, reporting that the 27-year-old has grown frustrated and concerned by the lack of challenging for silverware in north London.
They claimed that the England captain could push for an exit if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League at the end of this season – a possibility which now seems increasingly inevitable.
The Latest: Kane now ready to ask Levy to consider offers
Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat at Leeds United on Saturday has only cemented Kane’s thinking over his future according to the outlet.
The Sun believe that he will now appeal to Levy to consider any bids which come in for him this summer, with the report describing the development as the ‘clearest indication yet’ that Kane could leave. He will stop short of submitting an official transfer request but hopes that his appeal to the Spurs chairman will see a big money move potentially being set up.
The Verdict: Big blow for Spurs
The star striker has been Tottenham’s most crucial player this season by some distance, scoring an incredible 21 goals and setting up 13 others in 32 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
He partnered Son Heung-min to great effect earlier in the campaign, with the duo even breaking a Premier League record of most combined assists (Goal).
Whoever the Lilywhites’ next manager may be, they will certainly not want to lose a player who is critical to the Tottenham team, and news of Kane’s increasing desire to leave certainly comes as a worrying potential blow to Spurs.
