Tottenham are believed to be keen on keeping Harry Kane in North London beyond 2024, but it is the player who is expected to make the first move, according to The Athletic

 

The Englishman started the season poorly, scoring just once in thirteen appearances in the league, but has been in fine form since Antonio Conte’s arrival, netting 6 in his last 9 league games as his side fight to earn a place in Europe’s elite competition.

Kane was the subject of the long-drawn transfer saga between Tottenham and Manchester City, which saw chairman Daniel Levy thrice reject Guardiola’s approaches and as a result, he ended up staying at his boyhood club much to his reluctance. But, recent performances suggest the two-time Spurs Player of the Year might have got over a move not materialising. 

 

Kane will not be shy of suitors upon the end of his current contract in 2024, but it remains to be seen if the likes of City will come back for a 31-year-old Harry Kane. Spurs are said to be relaxed about the situation, with no talks planned until the summer. 

 

The 28-year-old has often reiterated his desire to win trophies with the North London outfit, but a Champions League final is the closest he has got to achieving his target so far. Helping Spurs to a top-four finish this season would go a long way to making up for the summer as Champions League football would help attract better players and investments.
