Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici insists it is the club's goal to keep Harry Kane beyond the summer transfer window. Kane is subject of transfer interest from the likes of Manchester City after he told the club he wants to leave. City are claimed to have had a £100million offer for the England captain turned down last month.

City are exploring their options as they attempt to replace the club's all-time goalscorer Sergio Aguero following his departure.

Kane appears to be the No 1 target, with Manchester United and Chelsea also linked with the 27-year-old earlier this summer.

Kane is yet to win any silverware in his club career and is keen to move to City, who have won the Premier League title in three of the last four seasons.

However, Paratici is adamant Spurs' aim is to keep hold of the striker and he is looking forward to seeing him back playing in the club's colours next term.

“Harry Kane is a top player. I can’t wait to see him playing with Spurs," Paratici told Sky Italy.

“We want to keep Harry Kane at Tottenham, it’s our goal.

"I’ve been lucky to see many top players at Juventus and I want to enjoy Harry Kane too. He’s one of the best strikers in the world."

Paratici officially started his role at Tottenham on July 1.

The Italian says he is yet to speak to Kane, whose brace in the 4-0 win over Ukraine on Saturday helped England reach the semi-final of Euro 2020.

Paratici added: “I’ve not had any conversation with Harry Kane yet - just because I don’t want to disturb our players during the Euros. He’s an incredible striker."

Tottenham finally ended their search for a new manager last week, appointing former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo on a two-year deal.

Paratici explained the reason for Nuno's appointment to the club's official website.

He said: “The brief for this appointment has always been clear, we wanted a Head Coach that can instil all the values that are important to this Football Club.

"You only have to look at Nuno’s time at Wolves to see his ability to take a group of players and implement an adaptive style that brings success and allows players to develop and thrive.

"We are all looking forward to getting started in what we hope will be a successful time with the Club.”

Nuno's first Premier League match in charge will be at home to City on August 15.
