With his own move to Bayern Munich, Harry Kane might help Arsenal in the summer window.
While negotiating his own move to Bayern Munich this summer, Tottenham star Harry Kane may accidentally be assisting Arsenal in the transfer market.
Spurs and the Bundesliga winners have been in talks about sending England captain Harry Kane to Germany, but they have yet to agree on a fee.
Bayern Munich is willing to pay a maximum of €100 million for Kane, which includes €90 million plus €10 million in add-ons. Spurs, on the other hand, want at least £100 million for their record striker, who is said to be willing to meet formally with Bayern if a deal is reached.
If Kane returns to the Premier League, Tottenham will demand a buy-back clause. Bayern will almost certainly have to smash their transfer record to sign Kane, which is presently €80 million paid to Atletico Madrid for Lucas Hernandez in 2019.
Fabrizio Romano claims that Bayern Munich are willing to bid again and move closer to an £86 million deal for Kane, despite the fact that their club-record offer for the 30-year-old is affecting the German club’s other business because they are unwilling to spend large on a goalkeeper.
However, if Kane’s potential move to Bayern Munich falls through, it will free up huge funds for Raya and force Arsenal to compete for the 27-year-old. With no other suitors, they may now wait to see if Brentford will accept a reduced offer or risk losing him for free in a year.
Kane may hold the key to Arsenal agreeing terms with Raya, and with a self-imposed deadline of Spurs’ first game of the season to complete a deal with Bayern, the Gunners may find out their fate sooner rather than later.
Spurs face the danger of keeping Kane beyond the transfer window and losing an elite striker on a free transfer next summer, possibly to a Premier League rival. This is why Spurs are in talks with foreign clubs.
