Kane has made no secret of his desire to win silverware, though always said he would stay at Spurs if he felt that was possible.
Fresh reports this week claim that Kane has run out of patience and has informed the club of his intention to leave.
Here’s what we know so far…
According to Sky Sports, Harry Kane has informed the club of his decision to leave and wants to remain in the Premier League.
Kane also reportedly wants clarity over a possible exit before the Euros, which start on June 11.
Sky Sports add that Kane was last year persuaded to stay for another season, what was expected to be Jose Mourinho’s first full season in charge, and try to win a trophy.
The report claims that Spurs are preparing for life without Kane and have started making enquiries over replacements.
Where would Kane go?
He continues to chase Alan Shearer’s long-standing Premier League goal tally of 260 and, as he approaches his 28th birthday, time is on Kane’s side with 165 to his name
So, a move to a Premier League rival is most likely, though any move can still be considered unlikely given the strength of Tottenham’s hand.
Manchester United, City and Chelsea have all been credited with interest.
Tensions remain at boardroom level between Spurs and Chelsea, dating back to at least 2005 and Frank Arnesen’s acrimonious exit to west London, so any deal between the two clubs would be extremely difficult to pull off. Not to mention the on-field rivalry.
He said: “Listen, with these prices (£100m-plus) we are not going to sign any striker – we cannot afford it, it’s impossible. That’s not going to happen, no. All the clubs struggle financially and we are not an exception.
How much would Kane cost?
Figures anywhere between £120m, £150m and further north have been bandied about.
But the first hurdle is the notoriously difficult chairman Daniel Levy, who drives the hardest of bargains – especially when it comes to selling key players – just ask Gareth Bale or Luka Modric.
What has Kane said?
Regarding wanting to leave, absolutely nothing.
He has, as mentioned above, previously underlined statements of his happiness at Spurs with a warning that he is prepared to leave should he start to believe his ambitions are not, or will not, be met. He wants to win everything in the game and is an extremely driven player.
In 2016, Kane said: As long as there’s a vision with the club, and we’re not stale, we’re going forward as a club … I’d love to stay here for the rest of my career. We’ll just have to see what happens.”
Three years later, last season, Kane said: “The main thing [for next season] is a trophy. It’s been about four years now that I’ve been playing at this level and we’re yet to win a trophy.
“I wake up every morning and that’s what I want to achieve. For me personally, though, I just want to improve. Every year I want to get better, to score more goals and to get more assists.”
Around the same time last year, Kane told Jamie Redknapp: “I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs but I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there for the sake of it.
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players. It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever but it’s not a no either.”
What have Tottenham said
It read: “We have a season to finish and we want to finish it as strongly as possible. That’s all everyone should be focussing on.”
