Bayern Munich should try to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer if they lose Robert Lewandowski, according to Jerome Boateng.
Kane has proven himself as one of the Premier League’s greatest-ever strikers following his rise with Spurs. In fact, the 28-year-old has 182 top-flight goals and is chasing Alan Shearer’s record of 260.
Despite a poor start to the season after lengthy speculation over his future last summer, he has found solid form. Indeed, he has hit 26 goals this term, 12 of which have come since the start of February.
However, doubt remains over Kane‘s future at Tottenham. Last summer’s much-touted move to Manchester City has gone amid their capture of Erling Haaland.
According to former Bayern defender Boateng, though, Bayern would be the Spurs star’s perfect next destination.
“Many strikers have impressed me and at the moment they have the best with Lewy [Lewandowski],” Lyon star Boateng told Sky Germany.
“[Karim] Benzema can also be mentioned after this season. Personally, I would immediately try to get Harry Kane at FC Bayern. That’s my opinion.
“For me, Kane is a complete striker who scores his goals every day at Tottenham. In a very good but not a world-class team.
“If he plays in a team like FC Bayern, I think that’s a super replacement at a very good football age. But that’s up to FC Bayern.”
While Kane’s future looks more secure now than it did last summer, Bayern are now in a dilemma over their top striker.
Lewandowski wants to move to Barcelona this summer, but Bayern have reiterated that he has one year left on his contract.
Still, Bayern have less negotiating power than Spurs did with Kane last summer. The England captain is entering the final two years of his deal.
Kane perfect for any league
Kane has proven himself in the Premier League, the toughest of Europe’s top five leagues.
However, he has yet to pick up any major silverware at Tottenham – hence the desire last summer to move to City.
Antonio Conte has changed the mood at Spurs and is on the verge of getting the club back into the Champions League.

And while he could lead Spurs to some major silverware, he would do well to get Tottenham competing with Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League next season.
The temptation may be there for Kane to look elsewhere, but with Conte at the helm, he will fancy his chances of staying in London.
