Tottenham reportedly have no interest in any swap deal for Harry Kane as Manchester City work around the clock to find a suitable offer to take the striker to the Etihad Stadium this summer. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be refusing to name his price to sell Kane, but has made clear he will not consider any offers involving players moving in the opposite direction.

Man City have been relentlessly pursuing the England captain all summer as boss Pep Guardiola looks to solve his striker crisis.

The England forward missed Spurs’ opening Premier League game of the season against the Citizens as the two clubs undertake a tug-of-war for the player.

Guardiola sees Kane as the missing piece of his jigsaw as he goes in search of that elusive Champions League trophy.

The Spanish manager is so keen to sign the 28-year-old that he apparently turned down the opportunity to pursue Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland this summer.

But Levy is playing hardball and is refusing to let Kane leave without a fight.

Man City have already made an official bid for Kane, thought to be in the region of £100million – but that offer was quickly rebuffed by Levy.

And, according to The Mirror, Levy has no intentions of setting a price for City to pay, but it is believed that £150m could be the figure that brings the Spurs chairman to the negotiating table.

Kane believes he has a gentleman’s agreement with Levy to depart the club this summer after agreeing to stay for one more season amid the Citizens’ initial interest last year.

Levy is refusing to play ball, however, and is making it as difficult as possible for his star striker to depart north London.

Kane’s contract has come under scrutiny this summer after it was revealed that he has no release clause.

The forward is midway through a six-year contract but has told club bosses that he wants to join the Premier League champions.

City have already broken the British transfer record this summer by shelling out £100m to land Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.

The creative genius has hit the ground running in Manchester and scored his first goal for the club in Saturday’s 5-0 victory over Norwich.

City chiefs had hoped they would be able to land both their summer targets for a combined fee of £200m, but Levy thinks the club’s first offer was well short of Kane’s true value.

If City are to land Kane this summer, they will have to act quickly as Spurs apparently want time to find a replacement if they are to lose their goalscoring machine during the current transfer window.
