Bayern Munich reportedly face competition from Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from north London having entered the final year of his contract.
That is despite the England skipper named on Spurs’ pre-season tour of Australia and Asia with the club desperate to keep their prized asset.
Kane has already been the subject of two reported bids by Bayern, with Spurs swiftly knocking back their proposals.
Chairman Daniel Levy is claimed to have met with Bayern chiefs recently to discuss Kane’s future.
It has been said that Kane would be open to a move abroad, and according to the Independent, this has seen PSG look to hijack Bayern’s potential transfer.
The news outlet has stated that Les Parisiens have made it their priority to bring in an ‘A-list’ centre-forward.
Along with Kane, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kolo Muani, Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic and Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund are also on their radar.
PSG were claimed to have met with Kane’s representatives in May, but cooled their interest when they felt it was a difficult transfer to pull off.
However with Kane open to testing himself in a new league, this has seen the Ligue 1 champions reignite their desire to land Kane.
The Independent have declared that PSG are willing to match any future bid from Bayern for Kane.
And the PSG hierarchy are said to be confident that the player would be happy to make the move to France to try and win the Champions League.
Though Bayern’s allure is believed to be greater given their history in the tournament, with the Bavarian outfit winning the competition as recently as 2020 – where they beat PSG in the final.
A move for Kane would not have any impact on Kylian Mbappe’s future at Parc des Princes, who like Kane, has just a year left on his deal.
Manchester United reportedly remain Kane’s preference, but it appears that the Red Devils do not have the required funds needed to tempt Levy into selling.
It remains to be seen whether Levy would be prepared to offload Kane, as they still look to convince him to pen fresh terms.
Spurs hope a whopping salary worth £400,00-a-week will be enough to persuade the ex-Leyton Orient loan star into staying.
