Eurosport journalist Dean Jones has been speaking on the latest edition of Touchline Talk to discuss all things transfer-related ahead of this summer’s window

Jones was questioned on the future of Harry Kane with the England captain having made his Premier debut for the club back in 2012 and still waiting to win a trophy with the north Londoners.

Kane has been in scintillating form having scored 16 goals in and recording 13 assists in his 26 appearances in England&8217;s top flight this season (via Transfermarkt).

The 27-year-old is being linked with a move away from Tottenham, with clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Manchester City named as potential suitors for the English talisman ahead of this summer.

Speaking about the England captain, Jones had this to say on where his future may lie.

He said: “It is a big summer. I think that his loyalty is almost the thing that’s holding him back the most right now. He is the best all-round striker in the game when he’s on it. And there is pretty much every top team in Europe [who] would be interested having that conversation about him coming in.

City are constantly linked, aren’t they? Real Madrid have been linked before, there’s a chance that Barcelona look for a striker. Bayern Munich are eventually going to want somebody to come in and fill the role of [Robert] Lewandowski. There’s a lot of options there for him, I’m not sure which one he would go for, though.

“Daniel Levy is going to be a huge obstacle because he’s going to want at least £150m – and he’s talked before about £200m when people have been kind of getting an idea of what the price would be.”

Will Kane stay at Spurs this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Kane has won a number of personal accolades in the shapes of Golden Boots and PFA Young Player of the Year awards, however, is it now time he moves on from Spurs to lift a league title or even a Champions League?

TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…

Daniel Levy has proven to be an extremely difficult chairman to negotiate with in the past. Gareth Bale’s move to Real Madrid is a prime example of that as Levy held out for a world-record fee for the Welshman, and you would expect it to take a similar situation for them to allow Kane to walk away from his boyhood club.
