Harry Kane is hoping for Manchester City to table an offer to try to sign him within the next week, according to The Telegraph.
The 28-year-old was not included in the Tottenham Hotspur squad for yesterday’s 1-0 win against Pep Guardiola’s side.
Spurs boss Nuno Espírito Santo revealed before kick off that the England captain had not been part of his squad after he had only returned to full training on Friday.
The report claims that Kane is hopeful that City’s will submit a British-record bid to Daniel Levy which will eclipse the £100million they paid Aston Villa to land Jack Grealish ahead of the new season.
Heung-min Son once again stepped up to the plate to shoulder the goalscoring responsibility in the absence of Kane, by netting the only goal of the game.
City are said to be prepared to pay £120million plus add-ons, while Spurs are insistent that they have no interest in selling the marksman this summer.
Levy values Kane at around £160million with the Premier League champions not prepared to up their offer to that amount.
If City want Kane, and Kane wants a move to the Etihad, they need to dig deep and pay what Levy expects. The ball is completely in their court.
