And while the England captain will be inundated with suitors, he still has three years left on his contract and so will come at a hefty price should anyone try and pry him away from north London.
So with the striker tempted by a move away, we take a look at where Kane could go, who could afford him, and where he can win the trophies he so desires?
First thing’s first, even in a depressed marketplace hampered by coronavirus, Spurs owner and fierce negotiator Daniel Levy will not be expected to let his prize asset go for anything less than £120 million.
In the red half of Manchester, there’s another club with the financial means to bring in Harry Kane.
Manchester United need a world-class goalscorer to lead the line. While Marcus Rashford goes from strength to strength, he is at his best on the wing, while Anthony Martial is not a reliable striker through the middle.

Kane could very well be the player that makes them a trophy-winning side.

And as for Kane, Madrid are serial Champions League winners and domestic title challengers. As with Manchester United, he could be the player that helps the club to all sorts of trophies as they rebuild. Were he there this season, they’d probably be top of La Liga.
What’s more, they can afford him.
What an opportunity and what a challenge it would be for Kane to move in on the great man’s spot and help steer Barcelona into another era of dominance,
Trophies are all but guaranteed, while the chance to play at the Nou Camp and alongside some of the world’s very best players is surely too tempting.

BEST OF THE REST
However, Kane may have bigger prizes on his mind than Ligue 1, and while PSG are no doubt Champions League contenders Kane may fancy his chances at a club with a more competitive domestic league.
Chelsea, too, used to dominate football’s biggest transfers with the backing of Roman Abramovich. However, in recent years they have opted for a more conservative approach, and have even brought through a few young players.
Wherever he could go, there’s big money to be spent and trophies to be won. Whether he goes is another question altogether.
