Report: Italian giants to launch £42m offer for Tottenham striker in January

By Amir Mir

AC Milan are willing to spend £42 million on Tottenham striker Harry Kane in January, according to a report.

Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport claim the Serie A giants have £100 million to spend and are willing to use that money on England international Kane.

Former Italy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi ended his 30-year ownership of the Italian giants by selling his majority stake in the club to a Chinese consortium for a reported fee of £627.4 million in July.

Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claimed on his website in August that Napoli enquired about a late window move for the 23-year-old striker and were met with an emphatic no.

Now it looks like Milan are prepared to use their financial clout in an attempt to sign the highly-rated forward.

The 23-year-old produced a magnificent display last season as he finished top scorer of the 2015/16 Premier League season with 25 goals.

It is said AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella is planning to use Kane as part of a two-man attack with forward Carlos Bacca.

Kane has scored 64 goals in 130 games for the north London club, but the 17-cap England forward has failed to score in his past ten games for club and county.

Kane endured a difficult Euro 2016 for his home country, and he failed to score in three games as England were knocked out by minnows Iceland.

In other Tottenham transfer news, a Bundesliga club is plotting a bid on this Spurs attacker, if his price drops in January.
