Miguel Delaney has claimed speculation linking Tottenham striker Harry Kane with a move to Liverpool this summer is currently being ‘laughed away’.
The Reds are expected to be in for a busy transfer window as they look to dust themselves down after losing out to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
One of their main concerns will be addressing the future of forward Sadio Mane, who looks to be calling time on his six-year stint in Merseyside (GOAL).
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano revealed Bayern Munich are strong contenders to land the Senegal international with Robert Lewandowski likely heading towards the exit at the Allianz Arena (The Athletic).
And with Liverpool expected to be needing a direct replacement for Mane, rumours have emerged claiming Jurgen Klopp’s side are interested in Tottenham talisman Kane (The Anfield Wrap via FourFourTwo).
And now Delaney has commented on the reports of Liverpool’s supposed interest, stating the talk is being laughed off by figures at the club.
Delaney wrote for the Independent’s Reading the Game newsletter (03/06/22): “Any notions that Harry Kane could go to Liverpool are being laughed away, meanwhile.
“Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League qualification and the impact of Antonio Conte have fully changed his mind.”
Kane, despite having a poor start to the season, recovered to put together a strong campaign alongside Antonio Conte to help lift Spurs back into the Champions League.
The England captain is thought to be happy with life under the Italian coach and could now open talks over a potential new deal so he can fulfil his dream of winning silverware with his boyhood side (Evening Standard).

The rumours linking Kane with a move to Liverpool have come out of nowhere really and do not exactly hold much substance given last year’s events with City.
He still has two years remaining on his current deal and has had a really good spell under Conte and with a fresh season and Champions League football to look forward to, an exit is really unlikely at this point.
