Journalist Raimund Hinko has advised Bayern Munich to steer clear of Harry Kane and give opportunities to Eric Choupo-Moting instead.

Reports from Germany over the last few months have incessantly linked Kane with a move to the Allianz Arena next summer.

German publication TZ claimed earlier this month Bayern want to sign a number nine to replace Robert Lewandowski and that the club have identified the Tottenham man as their number one target.

The report added that the Bundesliga giants are prepared to pay over €100m (£86.2m) to sign the 29-year-old.

Meanwhile, reports in England over recent weeks have suggested that Kane would be open to starting talks over a new contract with Spurs (Ben Jacobs).

Gianluca Di Marzio told Wettfreunde a couple of days ago that he believes the England captain will remain at Tottenham if Antonio Conte signs a new contract.

Hinko believes that it would be a waste of money for Bayern to go after Kane, given that they have Choupo-Moting in their ranks.

He told SportBILD: “A solution with Choupo-Moting would save Bayern many millions. Above all, an unfortunate transfer of the clumsy penalty-taking specialist Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur. Nobody really needs him in Munich.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear that Hinko has not watched much of Kane. Otherwise, he would certainly not be describing him as a ‘penalty-taking specialist’. I am pretty convinced that the 29-year-old will not be tempted by a move to Bayern as he has his eye on Alan Shearer’s Premier League record.
