Transfer update: Best deals from previous January deadline days
Harry Kane has continued to shine for Tottenham this season, before picking up an ankle injury during the defeat to Liverpool. Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with the England captain in the past, but Manchester City said to be leading the race for the 27-year-old.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly slapped an £89m price tag on Harry Kane’s head amid rumoured interest from Manchester City.
England captain Kane is regularly linked with a move away from Spurs due to his incredible goal record.
Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have been two of the clubs keeping an eye on Kane as he continues to dominate the Premier League scoring charts.
However, it appears that Pep Guardiola’s Man City are now eyeing a move for the Spurs hitman.

The Daily Mail report that Kane is facing the biggest decision of his career ahead of the summer transfer window.
That is to stay in north London or move north to City, who appear to be reaching their perch again as the best side in the country.
The Sky Blues are believed to be ready to launch an attempt to sign Kane as a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who is already showing signs of waining through injury.

And it is claimed that a £100million bid could be enough to persuade Tottenham bigwig Levy to sell his most prized asset.
It is thought that Levy is keen to raise cash, and such a huge offer could be enough to help him balance Spurs’ books.
Tottenham will be without Kane for their clash with Brighton on Sunday evening after the England captain suffered an ankle injury in the defeat to Liverpool in midweek.
And while Mourinho admitted that while a player of Kane’s calibre is irreplaceable, he has several attacking options to look to.
“Harry Kane is Harry Kane, you know… there are players in some teams that are not replaceable,” he said.
“But one thing is to have like last season three or four attacking players all injured at the same time, and another thing is to (just) have Harry Kane, because of course we have Carlos Vinicius, Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Gareth Bale. It’s a different situation, because we have attacking players.”
