According to multiple reports, Tottenham Hotspur striker and England captain Harry Kane informed club officials that he wants to leave Spurs this summer.

Kane, 27, had repeatedly dropped hints about his frustration over a lack of silverware despite becoming one of the Premier League’s most prolific strikers, scoring 165 goals in 243 appearances to sit seventh on the all-time list.

In a recent face-to-face meeting with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, Kane expressed his desire to move on and would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea have all expressed interest with Kane’s representatives, but it remains to be seen whether any club will offer the £150 million it will likely take to convince Spurs to sell.

Kane leads the Premier League’s golden boot race, and 22 goals and 13 assists. Only Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (40) and Lionel Messi (39) have more goal involvements in Europe’s top five leagues in this season.

Kane has not handed in a transfer request and, significantly, he has three years remaining on his £200,000-a-week contract, and is hopeful the situation can be resolved before the start of Euro 2020 on June 11.
