Report: Two European giants interested in Tottenham star Harry Kane

Tottenham will want to hold on to their star striker over the summer.

The London Evening Standard reports that Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is wanted by Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Kane, 22, has been on a superb run of form of late, scoring eight goals in his last seven games for Spurs. He recently overtook Gareth Bale and became the highest scoring Spurs player in a single Premier League season.

He has also put in a string of fine performances for his country, notably against Germany, when he scored to get England back into the game.

His performances have attracted interest from the best clubs in Europe, and with the ongoing issues involving Karim Benzema, Kane would be the ideal replacement, should Real move the Frenchman on.

There has also been a lot of talk regarding the future of Robert Lewandowski, with Pep Guardiola rumoured to want him to follow his move to the Etihad. Again, if a move like that were to come to fruition, Kane has all the attributes needed to fit in to the Bayern team as a replacement for the Pole.

The Standard report that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had encouraging words regarding Kane's potential:

“Kane and [Manchester City forward] Raheem Sterling are two exciting players for England. This ­summer in France will be a real opportunity for the rest of Europe to see how good they are.”

If Kane does indeed put in a good showing in France, and England have a successful tournament, you would think it would be hard for Spurs to keep hold of their star man.

He has always stated his intentions to stay in North London though, and The Standard reports how he responded when told of European club's interest in him:

“There will always be rumours flying about but I’m happy here. The club are in good shape and we have a great future."

Tottenham fans will be hoping that Kane sees out his career at the club, and does not follow former Spurs star Gareth Bale to the bright lights of the Bernabéu.
