Barcelona are being viewed as a strong, if slightly unexpected, transfer option for Harry Kane this summer amid claims they are set to make an approach for the Tottenham Hotspur striker.
Kane’s future is under the spotlight after a turbulent season under Jose Mourinho. While Spurs could yet end their trophy drought in the Carabao Cup, they face a fight to finish in the top four. They also suffered a woeful Europa League exit, which Kane described as embarrassing.
Tottenham’s fears over Kane have been exasperated after the striker admitted he will review his future at the end of the season.
Any exit would likely set his suitors back at least £120m, with both Man City and Man Utd linked. Indeed, one pundit has advised Kane which of the Premier League pair would best suit his abilities.
There is interest from LaLiga with Real Madrid long-term admirers. However, Ian McGarry of the Transfer Window Podcast, now claims Barcelona are emerging as serious suitors.
McGarry said: “It is our information that Kane is seriously considering moving away from Tottenham Hotspur. As a result, other clubs have been in touch with his representatives.
“We understand that the one that is most attractive at this moment in time is Barcelona.
“Barcelona are a team who are behind in La Liga and who are experiencing by their standards a bit of a poor season.”
Kane asked about Tottenham exit
Kane ended a six-match goalscoring drought for his country in England’s 2-0 win in Albania on Sunday.
After the match, the striker was asked if he needed to leave Spurs to win some silverware.
“I think that’s a hard question to answer right now,” Kane replied.
“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros.
“To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.
“I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros.
“Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible. I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer. Then we’ll see where we go from there.”
