In what could come as a potential boost to Tottenham’s chances of holding on to Harry Kane, The Sun have reported that Manchester City are ready to step up their chase of Erling Haaland.

City missed out on signing Kane in the summer as Tottenham held firm amidst the Premier League champions’ advances. 

The England captain has not hit the same heights for the Lilywhites this season since his failed move to the Etihad. 

Some reports over recent weeks have suggested that City could reignite their interest in the Tottenham man in January. 

However, Fabrizio Romano asserted in the recent episode of the Here We Go podcast that Kane is happy to work with Antonio Conte, and ruled out the chances of the 28-year-old leaving Spurs in January. 

If The Sun’s latest update is to be believed, City could turn their attention to Haaland if he becomes available, after missing out on Kane.

The report asserts that Pep Guardiola’s men ‘are certain to be in the frame’ for the Borussia Dortmund striker. However, City are thought to be facing competition from local rivals Manchester United and Real Madrid for Haaland.

Spurs Web Opinion

We will have to make a decision on Kane next summer if the striker does not sign a new contract. However, the chances of the 28-year-old leaving in January seem pretty slim. 

I suspect City might go after Dusan Vlahovic in case they are not able to get a deal for Haaland over the line. I can only see Spurs getting the Serbian in the summer if Kane leaves.
