Bayern Munich are ready to renew their assault to try to sign Harry Kane with two of the club’s top executives flying to London for a new round of talks with Daniel Levy, the Tottenham Hotspur chairman.

Tottenham have returned from their pre-season tour to London, where they will be met by Bayern chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen and the technical director Marco Neppe.

The pair have not travelled on Bayern’s pre-season tour of Asia so that they can try to negotiate a deal for Kane with Levy, who has so far rejected the German club’s approaches.

Kane was part of Tottenham’s pre-season tour, but is believed to be open to a move to Bayern should they manage to clinch an agreement with Levy.

The situation is complicated by the fact that sources claim Levy had been close to agreeing a deal to sell Kane to Paris St-Germain, but the striker does not want to move to France this summer.

PSG remain willing to outbid any other club for Kane, but it would take a major about-turn from the England captain to consider an offer – effectively leaving Levy with the choice of negotiating a deal with Bayern or risk his star player leaving on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer.

Bayern are thought to be willing to pay up to £86 million to sign Kane this summer, but are also confident they could land the player, who celebrates his 30th birthday on Friday, in January when he can sign a pre-contract agreement with an overseas club ahead of a move next summer.

Dreesen is reported to have met Levy in London two weeks ago and it is seen as significant in Germany that there is an open channel of communication between them with regard to Kane, despite Tottenham’s insistence that they do not want to sell him.

There have even been suggestions that Bayern would agree to a buy-back option for Tottenham in a bid to land Kane this summer, which could help to satisfy all parties.
