Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly opened in-house talks with Harry Kane over a potential new contract at the north London club.
The Englishman is set to enter the final year of his current contract, which he signed back in 2018, at Spurs this summer.
It has now been revealed that the club’s hierarchy have started to make moves behind the scenes to try and keep the centre-forward at the club for the foreseeable future.
According to a recent report from Football Insider, Spurs have opened talks with Kane over the possibility of him signing a new deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The report also adds that talks are at an early stage and that Tottenham are desperate to keep hold of their star striker, who also has the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich keeping close tabs on the situation and could make a summer move to sign him.
Having recently become Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer, overtaking Jimmy Greaves’ total of 267 goals in doing so earlier this month, it’s understandable why the Lilywhites are keen to tie Kane’s future down with a new contract.
The 29-year-old showed his importance to the team once again as he scored Spurs’ second goal in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea, making that his 18th league goal of the campaign.
Do you think Kane will sign a new deal at Spurs?
Antonio Conte has not been shy when it has come to sharing his praise for the prolific striker, describing him as a player that has “fantastic abilities” and “incredible skills” last month.
Hailed by journalist Joe Prince-Wright for his “majestic” attacking talent, Kane putting pen to paper on a new contract at Spurs would surely be a massive positive for everyone connected to the club.
Also, as mentioned in the report, with the likes of United and Bayern being linked with a move for the striker, seeing him sign a new deal with the Lilywhites would also seemingly put to bed any concerns there may have been about a potential exit.
