Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Tottenham are currently in talks with Harry Kane’s entourage over a potential new deal and argued that tying down the striker is the biggest move that the North London club can currently make.
Kane will be into the final 12 months of his contract with Spurs this June and despite the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich allegedly circling over the 29-year-old (The Telegraph), there have been some positive updates recently regarding the Lilywhites’ chances of keeping him at the club.
One such report came from Football Insider a couple of weeks ago, with the publication stating that Tottenham do not believe the striker’s future is linked to that of Antonio Conte, adding that the club are hopeful he will sign a new deal.
However, the Lilywhites’ loss against Wolves on Saturday has dented their hope of finishing in the top four.
Failure to qualify for the Champions League is not likely to make the club’s task of tying their talisman down any easier.
When asked about Kane’s contract situation, O’Rourke has now told GiveMeSport: “Talks are ongoing between all parties to see if this can be agreed.
“I’m sure Harry Kane, ideally, would like to stay at Spurs, but he needs to see that his ambition is matched by the club.
“He wants to be winning trophies at this stage of his career, but I think he’d be the biggest signing Tottenham could get if they could persuade Harry Kane to stay at the club long-term.”

It will not be particularly wise of Kane to sign a new contract before the end of the season.
The striker would ideally want to know if Spurs are in next season’s Champions League and who replaces Conte (if the Italian leaves) before committing his future to the club.
