Tottenham Hotspur are considering a shock move for former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku with Harry Kane travelling to Germany to complete a move to Bayern Munich.

Kane is set to undergo a medical with Bayern with the England international ready to sign a four-year deal with the club, according to reports. Bayern reached an agreement with Spurs on Thursday for a deal worth around £86.4m, leaving Kane with the decision to make the move to the Bundesliga champions or remain in North London.

David Ornstein of The Athletic reports he is set to join the German outfit on a four-year deal and will wear the number nine shirt. It brings an end to one of the summer’s transfer sagas with Bayern seeing two offers knocked back for the player who has just one year remaining on his deal at thr Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Reports in Italy from Gazzetta dello Sport claim Spurs could turn to Chelsea striker Lukaku if Kane completes a move to Bayern. Lukaku has been linked with a permanent return to Italy after spending last season on loan at Inter Milan with Juventus targeting the player.

The 30-year-old Belgian is training away from the first-team squd at Chelsea after joining the club for £97.5m in the summer of 2021. He had signed for Manchester United for £75m in 2017 and Inter paid £68.1m for him in 2019.

The report in Italy does add that Lukaku is keen on a move away from the Premier League while Ange Postecoglou is unsure if the player is suitable to Spurs, so it remains to be seen if a deal can be done.

Lukaku left Old Trafford just two seasons into his five-year deal after admitting he was in a “deep hole” at the club under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He made 96 appearances for the club and scored 42 goals while providing 13 assists, while also leaving with United able to recoup the majority of the fee they paid Everton for him.
