Fabrizio Romano has revealed he is unaware of Chelsea making contact with Tottenham striker Harry Kane about a potential transfer this summer.
Christian Falk recently claimed the Blues hold an interest in signing Kane but recognise a deal would be difficult to complete with Spurs unlikely to sell to a domestic rival.
The journalist added Spurs would prefer to sell the talisman abroad to a club like Bayern Munich, who themselves are looking to plug the gap left by Robert Lewandowski.
Romano, when quizzed on the possibility of Kane moving to Chelsea, has now poured cold water on the rumour, stating Spurs maintain the England captain is an ‘untouchable’ piece of Antonio Conte’s squad.
Romano told CaughtOffside: “I’m not aware of any contact between Chelsea and Harry Kane. Chelsea understand that Kane is untouchable, and Daniel Levy wouldn’t sell to a Premier League rival.”
Meanwhile, Tottenham are expected to try and tie Kane down for the long-term by making him a contract offer in the near future (Football.London).
It is claimed the 29-year-old is open to discussing new terms to stay in North London, having enjoyed a resurgence and fresh outlook under Conte’s guidance.

It is normal that a club like Chelsea would hold an interest in signing Kane as he is a top striker with so much quality. But realistically, it is always going to be a tough deal for them given the rivalry between themselves and Spurs.
