Tottenham interested in signing Brentford’s Ivan Toney
Kane has been heavily linked with a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich – whose bids were rejected by Tottenham twice. Worth £81 million (€94 million). Thomas Tuchel’s side are expected to make a third bid in the coming days as they look to seal a deal for the England international.
Bayern Munich chief executive Oliver Kahn has revealed in his latest interview that bringing the 29-year-old to the Allianz Arena would be a dream come true as he is seen joining Robert Lewandorf from Barcelona last summer A direct replacement for Skye.
Kahn told Sports Illustrated pass daily mail:
“He has a contract with Tottenham. Of course, an absolute top striker, but it’s just a dream for the future.
“Now we have to think about bringing the team together for the season. Let’s see what else happens”
Kane has just one year left on his Tottenham contract and could be out next summer if he is not sold soon and Manchester United have shown strong interest. Despite the uncertainty over his future, he was added to Ange Postecoglou’s team for a tour of Australia and the Far East.
With Kane on the verge of leaving, Tottenham are in the hunt for a striker, with Football Transfers claiming they have set their sights on Ivan Toni.
The report claims that Spurs are prepared to wait until January to sign the 27-year-old when his ban ends. Daniel Levy ideally wants to keep Kane until the winter window, at which point he can still sell him for a price before bringing in Toni as a direct replacement.
Tottenham will only make a move this summer if Kane leaves the club in the coming weeks. Tottenham have offered Kane a new contract extension, but the club’s all-time striker is yet to commit his future to the club.
Toni was one of Brentford’s best players last season. He played 35 times on behalf of the Bees in all competitions, scored 21 goals and sent 5 assists, helping the Bees rank 9th in the Premier League standings, only one point behind Tottenham.
However, he is currently serving an eight-month ban for breaking the FA betting rules, including betting against his own team. The ban will end on January 16, 2024, and he can only resume training from September.
Tony is valued at £30m transfer market But it remains to be seen how much Brentford want to sell now or over the winter. The 27-year-old is considered one of England’s best goalscorers.
