Erik Ten Hag has spoken publicly about his admiration for Harry Kane, stating that the Tottenham man can go on to become the best-ever striker in the history of the Premier League.

After weeks of speculation, it now appears like we might see some concrete developments on the Kane front, with the Bayern Munich hierarchy travelling to London today to meet with Daniel Levy (Ben Heckner).

Reports indicate that the German club are hoping to have a deal for the Tottenham man wrapped up by the end of this week (Florian Plettenberg).

Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in Kane, with The Daily Mirror reporting last week that the Red Devils had been put on red alert after Tottenham decided to cash in on their star striker. Erik Ten Hag was said to have identified the England captain as his top target.

However, the Manchester club have since reportedly wrapped up a £74m deal to sign Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta (The Sun).

Harry Kane has the respect of Erik ten Hag

The Man Utd boss has now refused to divulge any information about his club’s pursuit of Kane but he did have words of praise for the Spurs star.

When asked about the 30-year-old striker, Ten Hag told The Guardian: “I don’t talk about players in other clubs. I have to respect the club and respect the player.

“Especially Harry Kane, I have huge respect because he is a great striker, one of the best ever. Maybe he can be the best striker ever in the Premier League.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Based on Ten Hag’s statement, it is quite evident that Kane was his top target this summer but Daniel Levy likely refused to sell the striker to a Premier League rival.

United would have probably hoped that Kane himself pushes for a move to Old Trafford but the 30-year-old appears to have had his heart set on a switch to Bayern.
