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 find 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 is very expensive – and that’s the problem. But he’s a brilliant player, one of two or three who can play as a centre forward. In the last couple of years he’s been more of a No 10. But Kane is very strong, brilliant with head and both feet. He could score a lot in the Bundesliga.
“I don’t know the price, but it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. But we’ll see what happens in the future.”
Spurs are unlikely to accept an offer from Bayern, and would certainly want 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 apparently considering his options this summer. The 26-year-old wants to move somewhere he can play at centre-back, having spent most of his time at Bayern in the right-back position.
Manchester United and Chelsea have already been linked. But Pavard could be an outstanding addition to Conte’s back three.
Conte has been desperate to strengthen his defence this summer but it seems that Barcelona loanee Clement Lenglet will be the only centre-back additions, unless Spurs can persuade Bayern to let them have Pavard.
