‘let’s be very, very clear' - Thomas Tuchel speaks out on Harry Kane with Chelsea in need of a centre forward

Thomas Tuchel insists there is not a manager in the world who would not want to work with Harry Kane with Chelsea in the race to sign the wantaway Tottenham striker.

The England captain indicated this week that he is looking to leave Tottenham at the end of the season in order to enhance his career.

Manchester United are understood to have made an approach to Spurs while Kane himself has also suggested he is keen on a move to Manchester City, recently revealing he would relish the chance to line up in the same side as Kevin de Bruyne.

Chelsea are also firmly among the clubs interested in the 27-year-old with Tuchel a big admirer.

‘If you find any coach around the world who would not like to have Harry Kane in his team, call me again,’ Tuchel said.

‘I would like to speak with the guy and hear about his ideas of scoring and attacking. Everybody loves Harry Kane but let’s be very, very clear, he is a player for Tottenham.

‘He has a long-term contract and we will not get involved in any press conference with any disrespectful comments about that.’

Chelsea are reportedly willing to offer several different players in their bid to lure Tottenham into doing business with them.

Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga are thought to be among that group but Spurs are very reluctant to do business with their London rivals.
