Tottenham was ready to meet asking price for Kane replacement but it has now gone up

By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has plans to sign Lautaro Martinez as the replacement for Harry Kane, but they may have missed their chance of achieving that now.

The Lilywhites face losing Kane in this transfer window, with Manchester City relentlessly pursuing a move for him.

He has also told them he wants to leave and he could force the transfer to the Premier League champions.

ESPN says Kane might still leave London before this transfer window closes and Tottenham has been preparing for that eventuality.

The report claims they want Martinez to replace him and they were ready to meet Inter Milan’s asking price before now.

The Italian champions were willing to sell him for £60m and Spurs thought that fee was acceptable, considering that they expect to make around £160m from the sale of Kane.

However, Inter no longer needs to sell after cashing in on Romelu Lukaku and they have increased their asking price for Martinez.

The report didn’t disclose how much the Italians want now and it remains unclear if Kane will eventually leave Tottenham before this transfer window closes.

Martinez is eyeing a new deal at the Italian club and the absence of Champions League football at Spurs could be a turn off.

We are always prepared to put the money up but find it hard to actually get the players in. Usual Levy nonsense. Expect ‘Kane is like a new signing’ nonsense. Enic out.

@ Sao Paulo Spurs.

Just shows how much bs some/most media outlets wish to put out there because they know there’ll be enough idiots that will believe it!
Eg,
The Sun, front page story about Mr.Levy PHONING Harry that it’s a done deal at £150m to Manchester City.
& the ridiculous HK hasn’t turned up for training, he’s refusing to train/gone awol/gone on strike & trying to force a move, when he was on holiday at Joe Lewis’ villa FFS, so obviously THFC did know where he was! Etc, etc.

Well with Kane staying will ndombele possibly leave ? Hope so I’ve given him far to much time and he and his wage bill can do one.
I think we need a creative midfielder who can keep hold of the ball under pressure but they are rare and expensive.

Kane could well be staying this window not sure about the next but can’t see it beyond that. The statement he put out just confirms he wanted away and can only mean he will leave sooner rather then later. This leaves the ball in Levy and Fabio’s court, with time to shop. Will it happen, probably not everyone will be to over priced for Levy or wildly out of our reach even though Fabio seems to think he’s still at Juve. A massive reality check is need by both or we will be left standing around like a spare prick at a wedding yet again. Martinez was never going to join, more outlandish thinking by the board and some fans

I suggest a deal has been done between Harry and Daniel. Time will tell.

Where is the information coming from? It’s not even close to being true?

Kane says he’s staying, so that presumably also puts an end to these daft Martinez links too.
