Chris Sutton has suggested that Manchester City could come back with another attempt to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane in January, but expects Daniel Levy to hold a strong stance.

Pep Guardiola’s side pushed to sign the England captain during the transfer window, after he allegedly told Tottenham that he wanted a move away from the club. 

The Citizens were unsuccessful in their attempts to lure Kane to the Etihad Stadium and ultimately could not reach an agreement with Spurs chief Levy. 

City’s lack of an out-and-out striker is yet to affect them massively this season as they currently sit third in the Premier League with 14 points from seven games. 

Their recent 2-2 draw against Liverpool saw Guardiola’s men carve out a host of opportunities, but they failed to find that extra gear to secure three points. 

That result has led Sutton to comment on City’s future endeavours regarding Kane, and he has touched on the idea of a January move for him, which could hold huge implications in the title race.

In his column for the Daily Mail, he wrote: “If City do not win the Premier League this year, their lack of a striker is what will be held against them. Guardiola never hid his desire to sign Harry Kane. 

“Imagine if City go back in for the Tottenham striker in January and get him, at the same time that Liverpool are losing Salah and Mane. What a statement that would be.

“I don’t expect it to happen, in truth. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is bound to ignore any calls that come from Manchester. But I bet City ask the question, at the very least.”

If City return with their interest in January, you would expect Levy to hold as firm as he did in the last transfer window.

It would certainly throw a spanner in the works regarding the title race, but it is usually never a good time to buy players with selling clubs having to find replacements.
