Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Antonio Conte considers Harry Kane to be the ‘centre’ of his project at Spurs and the striker is thus ‘untouchable’ during the January transfer window.

Kane is now starting to find his goalscoring boots under Antonio Conte, having found the back of the net in Tottenham’s last two Premier League matches against Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

The Athletic revealed over the weekend that the England captain was set to reassess his situation in January when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge but is now loving life under Conte.

The report claimed Manchester City still view Kane as their ideal number nine but added that Spurs will not let the 28-year-old leave in January.

Romano has now reported something similar, explaining that Conte’s relationship with the star-striker is ‘more than good’.

The journalist added that one of the reasons that the Spurs managing director of football Fabio Paratici wanted to appoint Conte was to secure Kane’s future at the club.

Even before his goals against Liverpool and Palace, Kane’s all-round performances had shown big signs of improvement after the arrival of Conte.

The 28-year-old’s body language also looks much different to what it did under Nuno, when it seemed like the striker was simply going through the motions.
