Tottenham are allegedly informing their striker targets that a starting role is up for grabs next season, reports have claimed. Spurs are facing the prospect of losing their talisman to a Premier League rival, with Kane now keen to depart north London in pursuit of trophies.

Kane has publicly vented his frustration at watching Champions League football from home this season and Tottenham have now failed to qualify for the second successive season.

Spurs are understood to be open to the idea of selling Kane permitting their valuation is match.

A £150million price tag has been mooted while in recent days, that figure has dropped to around £120m.

Understandably, Daniel Levy does not want to lose Kane and will do everything within his power to keep him.

However, Kane has already stated that the final decision on whether he stays or goes will rest with him.

According to The Athletic, Spurs are reportedly telling transfer targets that there is a starting role up for grabs from next season.

That has obviously not been the case since Kane’s breakthrough campaign in 2014/15 when he made the No 9 role his own under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs have since had problems attracting the right calibre of player as cover for Kane, who has suffered his fair share of notable injuries in the past few seasons.

Vincent Janssen, Fernando Llorente and Carlos Vinicius have all struggled for opportunities in the shadow of Kane.

Tottenham has proved a difficult sell for any striker knowing that minutes will be limited all the while Kane is at the club.

Now Spurs will potentially have to navigate the task of replacing him during a time when there are few world-class strikers on the market.

Erling Haaland undoubtedly be the ideal replacement for Kane but he’s considered out of Tottenham’s league at this stage, particularly given the lack of Champions League and the nine-figure Borussia Dortmund valuation are quoting.

One standout option though is Eintracht Frankfurt’s Andre Silva, who hit 29 Bundesliga goals this season.

He could well be available this summer for around £40m.

Alternatively, Danny Ings of Southampton is another player who is under consideration.

The Saints frontman has just one year remaining on his current deal so could be available at a cut-price.

Tottenham are expected to turn down their option to sign Carlos Vinicius for £36m at the end of the campaign.
