Thomas Tuchel pushes for Tottenham’s Kane as Bayern Munich’s top priority


The Thomas Tuchel era is just beginning in Munich, and the new boss reportedly wants to make Harry Kane his centrepiece up top.

New Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel has reportedly communicated to the board that Tottenham striker Harry Kane is his top priority in the upcoming transfer window.

Kane, 29, is just five goals away from overtaking Wayne Rooney as second in the Premier League’s top goalscorer charts, having recently overtaken Rooney as England’s all-time top goalscorer and Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham’s record goalscorer.

With his personal legacy in England already secured, the logical next step is somewhere the striker can secure some team silverware, and that is an area Bayern can provide.

While Tottenham will be desperate to convince their star to stay put, any hint that he won’t sign a new deal is likely to force the club to cash in on their top talent.

According to Football Insider, Tuchel is “a big fan of Kane from his time in the Premier League and managing Chelsea” and has told the Bayern board that he should focus on him in the future.

Despite Kane approaching the final 12 months of his contract, Tottenham are still expected to demand a fee in the £100 million (Є113.8 million) range to part ways with their club icon, but they are extremely unlikely to allow his contract to run. out.

However, the report adds that Kane would potentially be open to an extension if Spurs secure former Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann as Antonio Conte’s replacement.
