Harry Kane wants to join Bayern Munich after holding positive talks over personal terms with the German champions, who are pushing to agree a fee with Tottenham Hotspur for the striker.

Bayern stepped up their interest in Kane after submitting an opening bid of £60m plus add-ons, which has been deemed too low, and will need to reach at least £100m to stand any chance of the deal going through. However, Kane’s contract expires next summer and he has shown little sign of wanting to sign an extension, leaving Spurs at risk of losing him on a free transfer next summer.

The uncertainty around Kane’s contract could boost Bayern’s chances and will be a consideration for the Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, as he prepares for a fight to keep the club’s star player. Sources have continued to insist that Spurs will reject any offer for Kane this summer and it remains to be seen if Bayern are willing to go as high as £100m. Levy could decide to accept a slightly lower offer if it means not having to lose the 29-year-old to a Premier League rival.
