Report: Chelsea now in contact with 'special' 27-year-old who adores Mason Mount
Chelsea have approached the representatives of Harry Kane as they continue their mission to sign him from Tottenham Hotspur.
A report by the Evening Standard stated that contact had been made between the Blues and Kane’s entourage about a possible transfer this summer.
The 27-year-old has clearly signalled his intentions about wanting to win silverware before his career concludes, something Spurs have not yet been able to offer him.
Kane given his all
For all his individual accolades – three Premier League Golden boots amongst others – and all his goals, 221 in 336 games for Spurs, major titles have still evaded Kane.
His service to Tottenham cannot be disputed, nor can the praise that’s followed in the striker’s sensational wake.
Jose Mourinho admitted to BT Sport back in February that: “Harry Kane is a special player in the history of the club”.
But what can be argued is the number of trophies currently propped up in his cabinet.
Chelsea to turn on the charm
If Kane is looking for winners’ medals, it’s difficult to look much further than Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel recently guided the Blues to Champions League glory and wasn’t too far away from lifting the FA Cup.
Attention will be now on stealing the Premier League crown off Manchester City next season; with Kane potentially leading their line, that would be a very realistic scenario.
Dealings between Tottenham and Chelsea would be difficult for obvious reasons.
Yet, the latter may use connections within their camp to lure the England captain across London.
In a recent interview with Gary Neville on The Overlap Extra channel, Kane explained his admiration for Mason Mount, saying: “I love Mason as a player.”
Mount’s talents might not be the deal-breaker to sign the England captain, but it certainly can’t hurt Chelsea’s course.
