The Athletic have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur could offer Harry Kane a new contract if things continue to go well under Antonio Conte.

Tottenham managed to hold off Manchester City’s advances for Kane in the summer and it has subsequently been suggested that the Premier League champions could return for the Spurs striker in January.

According to The Athletic’s latest update, City remain the club who are most likely to test Spurs’ resolve to hold on to the 28-year-old next month.

The report reveals that Pep Guardiola is desperate to add a striker to his squad after failing to do so in the summer.

It is alleged that City still view the England captain as being the perfect fit for their system due to his ability to operate as a traditional centre-forward as well as a false nine.

However, it is asserted that Spurs do not have any intention of letting Kane leave in January, which could potentially force Guardiola’s men to look at other options, including Erling Haaland, who is said to be ‘well thought of’ at City.

The report explains that the North London club offered Kane a new contract in the summer after his move to City collapsed but he rejected the club’s approach.

It is explained that although Spurs and Kane are not considering a new deal right now, a contract could be in the offing for the striker should Spurs continue to head in the right direction under Conte.

Spurs will likely begin talks with Kane over a new contract within the next two months if the upward trajectory under Conte continues. If the striker does not put pen to paper on a new deal before the end of the season, the club will have to cash in on him in the summer as it would be the last window where they can get a big fee for him.
