Tottenham Hotspur are reported to have been left surprised by reports over the past day which suggested that Manchester City value Harry Kane at a figure in the region of £120million, according to the Evening Standard.

The Guardian featured an article yesterday by Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano in which he claimed the Premier League champions are ready to pay €150m (£127m), should they receive a green light from Spurs that they are open to holding talks.

It is said there was contact between the two clubs over the past week, however, Tottenham’s stance remains the same, they have no interest in selling the forward who still has three years left to run on his contract in North London.

The Evening Standard do state that chairman Daniel Levy would potentially mull over an offer if it was in the region of £150-160million.

David Ornstein said this morning during an appearance on Sky Sports News that it is his understanding that City have no intention of paying anywhere near the £150-160million-mark.

The Harry Kane transfer saga is likely to drag on to the final minutes of the transfer deadline closing at the end of the month.

There was no way that Daniel Levy was going to sanction Kane’s sale to City before the two clubs meet on Sunday.  The ball is completely in their court, if they want him, they must pay what Daniel Levy values him at.
