AC Milan are reportedly preparing a £42m bid in January to prize away Tottenham superstar Harry Kane.
Italian media outlet Corriere Dello Sport have claimed that AC Milan are preparing a sensational bid for Tottenham’s England international Harry Kane when the transfer window reopens in January. The report has added that the Rossoneri are reportedly ready to bid in the region of £42m.
Harry Kane had become a darling for the English media and their fans after a breakout season at Tottenham a couple of years ago wherein he scored goals in Premier League appearances while also breaking into the senior fold for the England national team.
Kane also proved doubters who referred to him as a potential one-season wonder wrong, winning the Golden Boot last season for being the highest scorer in the Premier League with 25 goals while also featuring in every single league game for Spurs.
The 23-year-old’s current contract at the North London club runs for another three years and is due to expire in June 2020, which is likely to command a high transfer fee in case the club does decide to let go of the player.
Napoli has already had an unsuccessful attempt at trying to have a bid accepted by Spurs for the England international at the near-end of the summer transfer window and it looks like another Italian club in the form of AC Milan is set to try their luck.
AC Milan’s interest in the striker emerges from the fact that manager Vincenzo Montella is reportedly impressed with the player’s ability to play both as a lone front attacker while also having the talent to play as a part of a two man front-line and is looking to partner the 23-year-old with Carlos Bacca for the Rossoneri.
It is highly unlikely that Tottenham would entertain the prospect of Harry Kane leaving the club but it could present the England international with a unique opportunity of doing something that almost no other English striker has been able to do – perform in a top foreign league and it is very much possible that the potential experience to be gathered in the Serie A could benefit him and England in their international exploits in the future.
Only time will tell how this transfer rumour unfolds as it is still a long way to go before the transfer window reopens but with AC Milan’s new-found war chest thanks to their rich new Chinese investors, the Rossoneri are likely to put up a more than decent fight in an attempt to lure Harry Kane to play at the legendary San Siro.
