Tottenham Hotspur made discreet enquiries earlier this year for Erling Haaland when it became apparent that Harry Kane was discontent at the club.
The Daily Mail claim that Spurs had considered the Borussia Dortmund striker as a potential replacement for the England captain.
Daniel Levy was soon put off the scent of the Norwegian after being told by his agent Mino Raiola that the forward expected a salary of £350,000-a-week if he was to make the switch.
Haaland, 20, has established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in European football which has seen him score 39 goals in 40 appearances for the German outfit in all competitions this season (transfermarkt).
Sky Sports claimed last night that Kane has informed Spurs once again that he wants to leave and is looking to have his situation resolved before representing England at the European Championships next month.
Manchester City and cross-city rivals United have both been linked with a move for Haaland, who could now be set to remain in Germany for another season (MEN).
