Bayern Munich are eyeing Tottenham striker Harry Kane as a "dream" replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Goal-machine Lewandowski is leaving the Bundesliga giants after eight-years in Munich and is set to join Barcelona for a reported £42.5million. The 33-year-old is widely regarded as one of the greatest strikers of the last decade after scoring 344 goals in 375 Bayern appearances.

But with the Polish marksman now heading to Catalonia, the German champions are in need of a new talisman. That has prompted club chief and legendary goalkeeper Oliver Kahn to now name-drop England captain Kane as the man who could one day take on the mantle.

Kahn told Bild: "He is under contract with Tottenham. Sure, an absolute top striker, but that's all a dream of the future.

"Now we have to look at getting the squad together for the current season. So let's see what else happens."

Kane is expected to stay at Spurs this year despite pushing for an exit a year ago. He is happy to crack on at Tottenham after having his head turned by manager Antonio Conte, and it's understood the club have zero intention of selling him after finishing fourth last season and qualifying for the Champions League.

Do you think Harry Kane will ever leave Tottenham for another club? Let us know in the comments section below.

The 28-year-old still has two years left to run on his contract too and chairman Daniel Levy is keen to sit down with him in the coming weeks to discuss an extension. But his situation becomes far more interesting next summer with one year left on his contract if he fails to agree a new deal.

The 28-year-old has on a number of occasions voiced his desire to win trophies, which he is still yet to do. And if that persists after this season, Kane may finally ditch his pursuit of the Premier League all-time goal-scoring record in favour of a move to serial-winners Bayern.
