Growing impatient with the team’s lack of progress amid their poor form, the England international is supposedly finally ready to leave north London.

Harry Kane’s future has once again become a subject of intense speculations with the striker reportedly considering severing ties with boyhood club Tottenham.

Tottenham carry a heavy risk of missing out on Champions League qualification as they sit down at seventh in the Premier League standings, six points adrift of a top-four spot with just seven games left to play.

It has been reported that Kane, who is enjoying a very productive season, will hand in a transfer request should Spurs fail to qualify for Europe’s most prestigious club competition.

The striker has an astonishing 45 goal contributions – 29 goals & 16 assists – from only 42 games in all competitions so far in 2020-21.

A number of top European sides have been linked with the prolific Englishman including Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain – and the latter, as it appears, are one step ahead of their rivals in this transfer battle.

According to French outlet TF1, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has already contacted his former player to get an idea of his summer plans.

PSG could be in the market for a new forward if Kylian Mbappe, who is yet to sign a contract extension beyond 2022, decides to quit the club.

Pochettino is keen on rejoining forces with Kane and is attempting to convince PSG sporting director Leonardo to sign him if the club is unable to convince Mbappe to stay put.
