Bayern Munich have been linked with a blockbuster transfer for Tottenham striker Harry Kane after head coach Julian Nagelsmann publicly hinted at a bid. The Bundesliga side are desperate to search out a successor to Robert Lewandowski and Nagelsmann believes Kane would replace the Poland international’s goals.
Nagelsmann, whose public plea for the England captain angered Antonio Conte, said: “Kane may be very expensive – and that’s the issue. But he’s an excellent player, one in every of two or three who can play as a centre forward. Within the last couple of years he’s been more of a No 10. But Kane may be very strong, good with head and each feet. He could rating quite a bit within the Bundesliga.
“I don’t know the worth, nevertheless it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. But we’ll see what happens in the longer term.”
Spurs are unlikely to simply accept a proposal from Bayern, and will surely need a player in return to even go to the negotiating table. Express Sport looks at which stars from the German side Conte might like.
France defender Benjamin Pavard is outwardly considering his options this summer. The 26-year-old desires to move somewhere he can play at centre-back, having spent most of his time at Bayern within the right-back position.
Manchester United and Chelsea have already been linked. But Pavard could possibly be an impressive addition to Conte’s back three.
Conte has been eager to strengthen his defence this summer but evidently Barcelona loanee Clement Lenglet might be the one centre-back additions, unless Spurs can persuade Bayern to allow them to have Pavard.
