Liverpool are happy to let other clubs fight over Tottenham striker Harry Kane and are not preparing to make an approach for him this summer, according to a report by the Evening Standard.

Kane’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks with the likes of Manchester United (Evening Standard) and Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) being linked with a move for the striker.

The 26-year-old admitted on Sunday in an interview with former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp on Instagram that he will consider his future at the club if the team fails to match his ambitions.

Reacting to Kane’s comments, former Blackburn Rovers striker Chris Sutton suggested Liverpool as a potential destination for the Spurs academy graduate and insisted he would be ‘stupid’ to turn down the Premier League leaders if they came in for him (BBC Radio 5 Live).

The Evening Standard claim that Jurgen Klopp is happy for Liverpool to snub a move for the Spurs star and let their domestic rivals battle it out.

It is said that the Reds boss has other priorities when the transfer window opens and will not be queuing up for Kane’s signature.

Meanwhile, Spurs are said to be confident of holding on to Kane despite the increasing interest in the striker’s signature (Daily Mail).

Spurs Web Opinion

Liverpool aren’t likely to pay the kind of money it would require for them to sign Kane. Unlike Real Madrid or Manchester United, they have never really spent huge money on transfers with the Alison and Van Dijk deals being the exceptions.

Kane will probably cost more than double that either of those players did and I don’t think any club in Europe can afford him given the financial troubles they face as a result of the coronavirus shutdown.
