Manchester City are seemingly still desperate to bring Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to the Etihad Stadium, with the latest reports suggesting that they are set to submit a fresh bid to sign him.
Following Sergio Aguero’s exit earlier in the summer, it quickly became clear that Kane was the man who Pep Guardiola wants to succeed the Argentine idol at the Etihad.
The England captain made it clear that he wants to leave the north London club after they endured a less than successful campaign in the Premier League and Europe, failing to qualify for the Champions League or Europa League despite Kane finishing as the top scorer and top assists provider in the division.
Guardiola’s side have already seen at least one bid rejected for the 28-year-old, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy seemingly unwilling to let the striker go. That has reportedly infuriated Kane, as he felt he had a gentleman’s agreement with Levy to leave the club this summer.
However, it seems as if City are undeterred by Spurs’ actions thus far, with the latest reports claiming that they are prepared to submit another bid for the forward, in the hope of bringing him in before the transfer window shuts later this month.
Worryingly for City fans, Kane came off the bench for Spurs in their 1-0 win against Wolves at the weekend, which suggests that he could soon be convinced to stay with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, unless a deal can be agreed with the Premier League champions.
However, if Levy doesn’t accept this latest bid from City, he risks Kane downing tools for the entire season and potentially missing out on a huge sum of money, which if reinvested correctly could massively improve Tottenham’s squad.
Although City thrashed Norwich 5-0 at the weekend, the Canaries were no real test for Guardiola’s side, and the defeat against Spurs in their opening league game emphasised the need for a world-class striker such as Kane.
Therefore, fans must be delighted to hear that City are about to make another bid for Kane, as they will be desperate to see him join up with Guardiola’s side for the 2021/22 campaign.
