Chelsea have not made any contact with Tottenham Hotspur over the potential transfer of Harry Kane, confirms Fabrizio Romano. Thomas Tuchel’s side are still looking to sign a striker after loaning Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan earlier this summer.

Chelsea Suffer Blow in Harry Kane Transfer Interest
Spurs Will Not Sanction Kane’s Sale in Summer
The reason why the London giants have not even approached Spurs to enquire about their captain is that they are aware that he remains an ‘untouchable’ part of the squad. Moreover, their CEO Daniel Levy won’t even think about selling one of his biggest stars to a direct Premier League rival.

A lot has changed for Kane’s own perception about staying with the North London side since he tried to orchestrate a move to Manchester City last summer. He has been won over by manager Antonio Conte’s project and is happy to stay in order to help Spurs end their trophyless reign. The Italian head coach also labelled him as ‘world class‘ last season, further solidifying their bond.
Chelsea Continue to Look for Romelu Lukaku Replacement
Despite signing Raheem Sterling from Manchester City earlier this summer, Tuchel is still trying to sign a new striker to strengthen his front-line. The German manager does not consider the England international to be a direct replacement for Lukaku and the Blues are still looking for a quality goal-scorer to add more goals to the side.
Romano adds in his report that Chelsea were interested in signing Erling Haaland in the summer before he completed his move to Manchester City. But because of the sanctions placed upon them because of their former owner Roman Abramovich made it impossible for them to work on such a deal.
The London giants are still searching for potential options to bolster their attack after realising that the current core just isn’t good enough to help them compete for major trophies. However, they will not actively pursue a move for Kane after knowing his status and rest assured, the England captain will remain at Tottenham for at least this season.
