German heavyweights Bayern Munich have lodged an improved bid for Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane, according to reports.
The name of frontman Kane has of course taken its place front and centre at the Allianz Arena for several weeks now.
This comes after widespread confirmation was forthcoming that the England international has been identified as a chief summer target on the part of the Bayern brass.
The Bavarians remain on the lookout for a fitting replacement for long-time centre-forward Robert Lewandowski, on the back of the Pole’s decision to link up with Barcelona last summer.
And Kane, amid ongoing speculation that this past season may well have been his last in north London, is viewed as one of few players capable of replicating Lewandowski’s production.
With his Tottenham contract due to expire in just 12 months’ time, Bayern, in turn, recently tabled a €70 million bid for his services.
The proposal, however, was rejected out of hand by Daniel Levy and co.
But, as alluded to above, the Bundesliga champions have evidently not been deterred.
This comes amid fresh claims that a new-and-improved offer has today landed on the negotiation table at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
As per a report from Florian Plettenberg of Sky Germany, Bayern have upped their bid to a hefty €80 million, plus add-ons.
Not only that, but it is also reiterated that Kane, for his part, ‘definitely wants to join’ Thomas Tuchel’s side.
It now remains to be seen whether such terms are deemed acceptable by the Spurs hierarchy.
