Tottenham reportedly want a British record transfer fee of £150million for star striker Harry Kane. Manchester United and Manchester City are both said to be interested in signing the England captain this summer.
Kane has continued to be one of the most prolific goalscorers in European football.
The 27-year-old has also adapted his game to provide assists for his team-mates, notching 11 in 21 Premier League appearances this season to go with his 13 goals.
However, Kane is yet to fulfil his ambition of winning major silverware.
Spurs are in the final of the Carabao Cup in April but have seen their Premier League title hopes go up in smoke in the last two months after early season hope.

The FA Cup has also eluded Jose Mourinho’s side, though they are set fair to at least reach the last-16 of the Europa League if they overcome Austrian side Wolfsberger.
But with United and City both in the market for strikers, Kane is set to be a wanted man at the end of the season.
The Mail says Kane’s wages of around £200,000 a week would not be an issue for either of the Manchester clubs.
But Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has slapped a £150million price tag on the academy graduate.

That would smash the record fee spent on a British player, which is Gareth Bale’s £85m move to Real Madrid from Spurs in 2013.
It would also be the biggest transfer deal involving a British club, following Philippe Coutinho’s £142m switch to Barcelona from Liverpool three years ago.
Kane has maintained his desire to win team silverware during his career.
City look to be running away with the Premier League title this season and are in a good position to compete for the three cup competitions.
Meanwhile, United continue to improve under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they search for their first title since 2013.
Former Arsenal star Paul Merson believes United must go all out to sign Kane.
“If I’m Manchester United, I’m doing all I can to buy Harry Kane,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“I know Erling Haaland is on a lot of radars, but there should be only one person on Man Utd’s radar: Harry Kane.
“If they want to close the gap to Man City, they need someone to come to that club and score goals the minute he walks into that club, like Harry Kane can.
“Because Kane has done it, year in, year out, in this relentless league.
“Who is to know Haaland is going to hit the ground running in this league?”
