Here, Mirror Football rounds up the latest transfer news from the Etihad Stadium.

Spurs issue Kane stance

Fabio Paratici, Tottenham Hotspur’s new managing director of football, has stated that the Lilywhites will do everything within their power to keep hold of City target Harry Kane this summer.

The striker, 27, is reportedly seeking a move away in the transfer window with the desire to win trophies elshere.

Paratici told Sky Italia : “Keeping him is not just my goal, it’s our goal as a club.

“I can’t wait to watch him play live, I’ve been really lucky in the past years because I’ve watched a lot of top players and strikers, like Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain, and many more which now I forgot about.”

The former Juventus chief added: “I haven’t heard from him yet because I don’t want to bother the players who are busy at the Euros, it doesn’t seem fair to me.

“They’re focused on their own goals with their national teams.”

This comes after French newspaper L’Equipe reported that Spurs would want £120 million for the England captain – less than the Citizens’ take-it-or-leave it offer of £100m last month.

Ings turns down contract

If City are not able to secure the services of Kane, then they may well be in with a good chance of finding an alternative for a cut-price fee.

Southampton striker Danny Ings has reportedly rejected a lucrative contract off at St Mary’s, with his current deal expiring next summer.

The Athletic report that the Saints ‘pulled out all the stops’ and could be forced to sell Ings this window in order to recoup a fee.

In March, it was reported by numbers outlets that the Citizens were considering a bid for the former Liverpool striker, who struggled with injuries at Anfield, who would be more attainable than the likes of Kane and Erling Haaland.

Would Ings be a smart signing for City if they fail to land Kane? Comment your thoughts below.

Football Insider even claimed that a ‘concrete’ move for the 28-year-old was to be made in the ‘coming weeks’ during the spring, but it appears nothing materialised.
