Report: Tottenham field striker approach on Thursday, response is emphatic
By Tom Blackburn
Tottenham have rejected an approach from Napoli to sign Harry Kane, according to a report.
Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims on his website that the Serie A big hitters enquired with Tottenham about a cheeky late window move for the 23-year-old striker.
But it is said that Napoli’s bid for Kane was rejected by Tottenham and that it is “impossible” for their talisman to be sold to the Italians or any other club.
Kane has had two consecutive outstanding seasons for Spurs and topped the Premier League goal charts last season with 25 goals as well as finishing third in the PFA Player of the Year award behind Leicester duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.
Football Insider exclusively reported last week that Spurs were to revive talks over a new £110,000-a-week contract for the England youngster.

It was previously revealed in March that Spurs were keen to tie Kane, 23, down to a lucrative new contract that will make him the best-paid player in the club’s history.
The north Londoners are ready to offer Kane a stunning £110,000-a-week deal that would run until 2021 if, as expected, an agreement can be reached.
The club have made an attempt to support their star man by welcoming Dutch striker Vincent Janssen to the club this summer from AZ Alkmaar for £18million.
In other Tottenham transfer news, their 22-year-old target is set for a £15million switch to the Premier League.
