Kane is understood to be weighing up his choices when it comes to a viable fresh start elsewhere.
As a product of Tottenham’s academy system, he has remained loyal to the club that gave him his massive break.
He is, however, drawing near a stage in his profession where he needs to be seeing his apparent potential rewarded with tangible success.
Kane is the undoubted star man at Spurs and captain of an thrilling England side that have pressured their way back into competition for honours.
No indication has been provided that the subsequent window will be the one in which he pushes for a move, however interest in his offerings should be stepped up.
Any offers will test Tottenham’s resolve and pressure Kane into some big decisions, with the likes of Juve, United and Real all successful of digging deep if an exit door swings open in London.
