Harry Kane insists he is fully focused on Tottenham despite Bayern Munich transfer links

Harry Kane has branded Bayern Munich a ‘top, top club’ as the Tottenham striker continues to be linked with a move to the Bundesliga giants.

But the 29-year-old insisted he remains fully focused on Spurs ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern were heavily linked with a move for the England skipper this summer as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

But reports say the German side are willing to wait until 2023 when Kane would then have a year left on his contract in north London.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has played down a decision by the 2018 World Cup winner last month.

And now Kane has had his say on a potential exit where he has sworn he only thinks about succeeding with Antonio Conte’s side.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the Frankfurt clash, Kane was asked about his future.

To which he said: “I am focused on Tottenham Hotspur and trying to do my best for us.

“For sure Bayern are a top, top club.

“But all my focus is on Tottenham and I try to win tomorrow night.”

Spurs are desperate to tie Kane down to a new contract, with Conte urging the striker to put pen to paper on new terms earlier this season.

He said: “We are talking about a world-class striker and a player who, at the moment, is Tottenham’s most representative player.

“Of course I would like him to sign a new contract.

“But right now, for me, it’s very important to see him happy, totally involved in this season, totally involved in this project and in what we are doing.

“For me, that’s the most important thing. Then it’s a decision that the player and the club have to make.

And Conte knows that failing to extend Kane’s stay will only boost Bayern’s hopes of landing him, with their CEO Oliver Kahn saying it’s a “dream” to secure his services.

Speaking to Sport Bild in July, he said: “He is under contract with Tottenham.

“Of course, an absolute top striker, but that’s all a dream for the future.”

Kane has enjoyed another brilliant start to the season after scoring eight goals in nine Premier League appearances – including Saturday’s winner at Brighton.
