Chelsea target Harry Kane has been warned by Daniel Levy that the Tottenham chairman will protect the club’s interests in the transfer market this summer.
Kane has told Spurs he wants to leave in the search of trophies after becoming frustrated at the club’s lack of progress in recent years and his uncertain future has provoked the interest of some of Europe’s top sides.
Chelsea are seeking to improve the squad in the transfer window and add another striker to the squad that has the ability to find the back of the net on a weekly basis, rather than here and there.
However, Tottenham are intent on keeping their star man, who has three years left on his contract, and Levy sympathises with Kane’s frustrations but hinted a deal could be difficult to do.
“I am never going to talk about any specific player in public,” Levy said on the club’s official website. “All I will say is his frustrations in not winning are shared by me and all the fans and players. We all want to win.
“One of the items that Fabio will have to deal with when he comes in is which players are going to be retained, which will be asked to look for other clubs. There is a market out there. What we want and what other clubs want is not always possible to achieve. We will do whatever is right for the club.”
Chelsea should keep a very close eye on this rumour because Kane is just the type of player that would send a real statement to the rest of the Premier League
