Spurs have not received an official bid yet. They have no intention of selling and insist on keeping him this summer.
Kane recently stayed at Spurs’ training ground hotel, The Lodge, after returning to the United Kingdom from his holiday.
He has been required to undergo a period of self-isolation. The 28-year-old could return to training just two days ahead of Spurs’ Premier League opener at home to City on Sunday.
The 2020-21 Premier League winners recently completed a record-breaking £100 million transfer of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.
The club are now looking for a striker who can successfully replace Sergio Aguero.
Spurs rejected City’s previous bid of £100m in June, with Daniel Levy determined to keep his man.
Kane would be the ideal striker for Pep Guardiola.
He is a prolific goalscorer and one of the best creative forwards in world football.
In Guardiola’s preferred 4-3-3 formation, the Englishman would create space for the likes of Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Jack Grealish to exploit.
However, one of the few concerns is his injury record. He has also suffered a slump in form, which was visible during the European Championships.
At his best, Kane is one of the best strikers in the world, and his signature would make City almost certain title winners.
