HARRY KANE reportedly remains Bayern Munich’s No. 1 transfer target.
The German giants were keen to try and lure the striker away from Tottenham last summer but never came close to a deal.
Bayern lost Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona and still see Kane as the ideal long-term replacement.
According to Kicker, club bosses remain adamant they can sign the England captain from his childhood.
Kane, who scored a penalty in the Three Lions’ 3-3 draw with Germany last night, was aiming to leave Spurs in the summer of 2021 but is happy again in north London under Antonio Conte.
His contract at Tottenham expires in June 2024 and the striker is said to be relaxed about the situation.
Kicker claims Bayern have been in “soft” contact with Kane’s representatives in hopes he won’t extend his stay at Spurs beyond 2024.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side could look to sign Tottenham’s No10 on a free transfer at the end of next season.
Alternatively, they could try to test their resolve at the end of this season with a year left on the contract.
They managed to secure a similar deal for Sadio Mane in the summer when it became clear that the Senegalese ace wanted to leave Liverpool after six successful years.

Whether Kane wants to move abroad while chasing Alan Shearer’s goal record remains to be seen.
He has made no secret of his desire to capture the Newcastle legend and is now 71 goals away from his 260 overall – having already moved up to third in the all-time list above Andrew Cole this season.
Speaking about Kane’s future last month, Tottenham manager Conte urged him to extend his stay.
The Italian said: “My opinion is just one of a million opinions.
“We’re talking about a world-class striker and a player who is the most representative player for Tottenham at this moment. I definitely want him to sign a new contract.”
“But at this moment it’s very important for me to see him happy, totally involved in this season, totally involved in this project and in what we’re doing. For me that is the most important thing.
“Then it’s a decision for the player and the club to make.”
