ESPN have claimed that Manchester City are prepared to reignite their pursuit of Harry Kane when the transfer window reopens in January.

Daniel Levy managed to hold off City’s advances for Kane after a drawn-out transfer saga during the summer, with Pep Guardiola admitting Spurs were not even willing to negotiate a price for the striker.

The 28-year-old has struggled to find form so far this season, having scored just once in ten Premier League appearances so far.

According to reports, Kane is excited by the prospect of working with Antonio Conte following the Italian’s appointment last week.

However, ESPN now claim that City remain in the market for a striker having missed out on Kane in the summer and could try again for the Spurs star in January.

It is stated that the Premier League champions would be willing to test Tottenham’s resolve to keep the England captain if they are given any encouragement by the North London club.

The report explains that Levy has given assurances to Conte that he can expect to include Kane in his plans moving forward.

However, one source has allegedly told ESPN that Spurs could rethink their stance if they receive a huge offer.

Given Kane’s struggles this season, I thought until a couple of weeks ago that there was a chance he could be sold in January if City make a sizeable offer.

However, as far as I am concerned, Conte’s appointment has pretty much ruled out any chance of the striker being sold.

Not only is the 28-year-old now less likely to push for a move but the Italian would have almost certainly sought assurances from Levy and Paratici that the striker would stay.
