Harry Kane has been told that Liverpool would be the perfect club to join as the striker eyes a transfer out of Tottenham this summer. Former England defender Danny Mills believes that Kane would slot seamlessly into a devastating front three alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The 27-year-old has made clear his desire to depart Spurs in search of silverware, which has so far alluded him during his senior career.
Kane does not join the North Londoners’ pre-season preparations until early August but has previously said that he will have a discussion with chairman Daniel Levy over his future.
Manchester City and Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for the England captain, who Spurs value at around £150million.
There are understood to be very few clubs worldwide who could afford to finance the deal, which would include his £200,000 per week wage.
Manchester United have also been credited with interest but that has simmered since Red Devils forward Edinson Cavani signed a new one-year contract.

But Mills, who enjoyed a Premier League career with the likes of Man City and Leeds, believes Liverpool should be the club Kane pushes for a move to.
“Harry Kane would fit them perfect in the way that he plays,” Mills told TalkSPORT about how Liverpool can strengthen this summer.
“That slightly deeper role, the nine-and-a-half position, the way that he drops in sometimes.
“If you had Mane going down one side, Salah down the other and Kane down the middle, the chances he would create for them and the chances they would create for him… it would be perfect.

“He’s not going there but he would be the perfect fit. The way that they play, [signing] a centre forward who is going to get you 20-plus goals a season would mean that they are back up at the top of the league immediately.
“The way that Harry Kane plays… yeah, we know he’s the No 9, but he does drop deep. Look at the amount of assists he got last season, plus the amount of goals.
“Look who he was playing with. Son is a fantastic player, but playing [at Liverpool] with two quality players either side of him, that would be unbelievable.
“In terms of fit, I think Liverpool would be the best for him, Harry Kane. Do I think he will go there? No.”

It is increasingly likely that Kane will remain at Tottenham for another season, unless a club stuns them with a massive offer.
New boss Nuno Espirito Santo revealed last week that he had not spoken to the forward while he was on international duty with England.
Kane led the Three Lions to the final of Euro 2020 and scored four goals in the knockout rounds to end the tournament as his side’s top scorer.
Liverpool have not been linked with Kane and seem more interested in improving boss Jurgen Klopp’s defence and midfield options.
The Reds’ defence of their 2019-20 Premier League title was derailed by a cutting injury injury and a huge drop in form.
Liverpool eventually finished third after a positive end to the campaign and have started their plans for the 2021-22 season by signing centre-back Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
Klopp’s side began their pre-season schedule with two 30-minute friendlies against Wacker Innsbruck and Stuttgart on Tuesday.
Two different XIs, made up of a mix of senior and youth players, started each match and both games ended in 1-1 draws.
