Kevin Campbell believes that Manchester City will make another attempt to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane, and argues a move could happen in January.
The former Arsenal striker claims Pep Guardiola’s side still need a striker if they are to be in a strong position to defend their Premier League crown.
City held a firm interest in Kane, 28, throughout the majority of the summer, after he allegedly told Spurs chiefs that he wanted to leave North London.
Guardiola also revealed he and City had made it their goal to lure Kane to the Etihad Stadium following the departure of Sergio Aguero.
However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was firm in his intentions and dismissed any interest from the Citizens, which subsequently meant Kane would remain in N17.
Although they have started the season strongly, City still have the problem of a lack of an out-and-out striker at the club and Campbell believes they will make another move for Kane in the winter transfer window.
Campbell was quizzed on Highbury Squad whether Newcastle United could submit a bid for Kane following their £300 million takeover deal, to which he responded: “No, City I think. I think City are going to make the move in January. They need a striker.”

City could well return with a fresh bid for Kane, but striking a deal in January will be difficult considering there wouldn’t be too many replacements for Spurs on the market.
There is no doubt that Levy and Fabio Paratici won’t make it easy for them to acquire Kane mid-season either.
