After a disappointing last season, Bayern Munich is looking to strengthen several areas of the squad. The Bavarian club is keen on addressing the number nine conundrum in the squad by signing a top-quality striker. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has emerged as the top target for Die Roten in this position.
Bayern had a first bid rejected for Kane a few weeks ago. The first offer was close to €70 million, which was flat-out rejected by the English club. The latest update from England provides details about Die Roten’s second bid for the prolific goalscorer.
According to Daily Mail, Bayern is set to make a second bid worth €82 million (£70 million) for Harry Kane. The Bavarian club wants to swiftly complete the deal, but Spurs continue to insist that Kane is not for sale. The North London side is expected to reject the second bid from Rekordmeister.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not interested in losing the club’s all-time top scorer this summer. The English club has already made an offer to Kane for a contract renewal. Spurs are reportedly ready to risk losing Kane on a free transfer next summer instead of selling him during the current transfer window.
Daily Mail also reveals that Bayern has promised all necessary conditions to Kane and his family for a smooth integration in Munich. Thomas Tuchel has convinced Kane about the sporting project at Bayern. The English striker can play in the Champions League by moving to Munich. Spurs have missed out on European football next season due to a dismal last campaign.
Die Roten reportedly has agreed personal terms with Kane. However, convincing Levy and Spurs to sell is going to be an almighty challenge for the Bundesliga champions. The Bavarian club will have to come up with a mouth-watering offer that will force Levy to sanction the sale. Bayern will have to come close or go just beyond £100 million to change Levy’s mind.
Rekordmeister’s chances of completing this transfer will receive a boost if Kane puts in a transfer request. The English forward will be reporting for pre-season training early next week. It remains to be seen if Kane will agitate for a move like he did two years ago when Manchester City tried to sign him from Spurs.

Bayern rarely gets involved in long-drawn transfer sagas. The Bavarian club is looking to navigate through a difficult deal to sign Kane, so they will have to show patience. It remains to be seen how long they are ready to pursue the deal before moving on to other targets if Spurs continue to reject bids for the English forward.
