Manchester City are set to make one final push to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane this week.

The 28-year-old made his first appearance of the season as a substitute in the 1-0 victory over Wolves on Sunday as speculation over his future continues.

With just over a week until the transfer window closes, a report in the Telegraph indicates the Premier League champions are set to go in with one final offer to convince Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to sell the England captain.

Kane is thought to favour a move to City before the window closes but he was given a warm reception by the travelling Spurs fans at Molineux.

The Daily Mirror previously reported that City are still £50m short of Tottenham’s £150m valuation, with Levy not interested in any players as a makeweight in a potential deal.

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo praised Kane for his 18-minute cameo but refused to confirm whether the striker will be involved in the second leg of the Europa Conference League play-off against Pacos de Ferreira.

He said: "Harry helped the team. We are talking about one of the best players in the world and we are very lucky to have him. It’s too soon to know if he will be involved on Thursday. Now I cannot answer that.

"He is getting back to his fitness and he still has to improve. You could see the way he helped the team in terms of possession and the fine lines. We need everybody."

Meanwhile, the Telegraph’s report indicates Spurs are set to table a £40m bid for Wolves winger Adama Traore.

Clubs circling for Haaland

Manchester United and Man City have been put on red alert after Erling Haaland's £64m release clause was reportedly brought forward to January.

The Borussia Dortmund striker, 21, is one of Europe's hottest properties and chasing clubs had been alerted by the clause set to come into play next summer.

But Marca report it has now changed to January, which is set to spark a bidding war involving United, City and the majority of Europe's big boys.

Haaland has scored a stunning 62 goals in 63 appearances for BVB, with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona previously linked with moves.

With City still seeking a striker amid their long-term pursuit of Kane, they may be inclined to wait until the turn of the year for the potentially cheaper and younger Norwegian.

Meanwhile, United’s only out-and-out striker is Edinson Cavani, 34, so manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be eager to add to that department in the next 12 months.
