Manchester City will not be held to ransom by Tottenham when it comes to signing Harry Kane.

The Premier League champions have made the England captain their No.1 transfer target this summer and want him to replace club legend Sergio Aguero.

But Etihad bosses have made it clear to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that a fee of around £160m is out of the question.

Reports claim this is the figure Levy is prepared to take for his prize asset, after accepting defeat in his bid to keep him at the London club.

Kane is desperate to join City and start competing for the biggest prizes, after becoming disillusioned at Spurs.

But while City chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak knows he will have to smash the club's transfer record - £63.7m paid for Ruben Diaz - to land Kane, he will not come close to matching the £160m Spurs want for the 27-year-old hitman.

City are willing to go as high as £120m for Kane and will sell Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus to help fund the record-breaking deal.

It means the top flight rivals will spend the next few weeks locked in a game of brinkmanship in a bid to negotiate what will be the biggest transfer in British football history.

City have agreed personal terms with Kane of £350,000-a-week - but the fee remains the biggest hurdle to the deal being done before the start of the new season on August 14.

Spurs host Pep Guardiola's men 24 hours later on the opening weekend of the new campaign - and Guardiola is desperate to have Kane fit and available to face what would be his former side.

Spurs have reiterated their stance that Kane is not for sale, but the transfer appears inevitable given Kane's desire to move, provided Levy softens his stance and becomes more realistic with his asking price.
