Bayern have already made two offers for the England captain to Spurs – the second worth 94 million euros ($103.19 million). The club hierarchy could be tempted to make an improved offer to help the deal cross the finish line.
Kane will become a free agent when his contract with Spurs expires at the end of next season, but he wants to sign with Bayern this summer.
Sources told ESPN that Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel met Kane in London a few weeks ago and the striker was drawn to the idea of winning trophies with the German giants.
According to sources, Kane’s brother and agent Charlie has been in constant contact with the Bayern hierarchy in the run-up to a possible transfer.
Ange Postecoglou, Spurs’ new manager, said on Wednesday he could not give any assurances about Kane’s future but added that he wanted to speak to the player once he returned from vacation.
If Kane expresses his desire to leave the club, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will have to decide whether they want to risk losing the player on a free transfer next year or are willing to buy him now for a significant fee lose.
Reports from England say Spurs could let him go for £100million this summer, but ESPN sources added Bayern were reluctant to pay that amount.
According to sources, Paris Saint-Germain are also closely monitoring the situation of the club, who are interested in signing Kane. The French champions are waiting to see how negotiations between Bayern and Spurs develop before making a move for the striker.
