Fabrizio Romano has provided the latest update on Manchester City’s interest in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and it’s one which will likely delight City fans.
After the signing of Jack Grealish was completed earlier this month, it seems clear now that Kane is Pep Guardiola’s top target in the transfer window, as he looks to bring in a world-class striker capable of replacing Sergio Aguero at the Etihad.
The England captain may well have made it clear that he wants to leave the North London outfit but chairman Daniel Levy has other ideas and has so far rebuffed any offers made by the Citizens.
However, it appears as if City aren’t giving up the chase after Romano suggested:
“Manchester City are not giving up on Harry Kane deal. Man City board preparing a new bid for €150m – if Spurs stance will change. Tottenham have not received any new proposal for Kane yet, and want to keep him – Man City strategy is to be ready… and wait.”
With the new Premier League season just a few days away, Manchester City still have just Gabriel Jesus and Liam Delap as the natural striker options in their squad, with the latter looking likely to head out on loan to a Championship side before the window closes.
Although they were comfortable in winning the Premier League last season, a lack of squad depth up front arguably cost City in the latter stages of last season, and a clinical striker such as Kane could prove to be the difference for Guardiola’s side next season as they chase success in the Champions League next year.
The likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are all sure to challenge City strongly for the title next season and whilst some City fans might be worried that they have not yet added a striker to their ranks, they will be delighted to hear Romano’s update that they are preparing another bid for Kane.
