There have been rumors linking the England international to Chelsea. But Fabrizio Romano has refuted this speculation in his latest edition of the CaughtOffside column.
Romano reveals that Tottenham views Kane as untouchable, while the player is settled at the club.
Chelsea could use a top signing up front after a disappointing summer where Romelu Lukaku was loaned out and new signings have been difficult to find. Romano believes the Blues may have let things slide a little too late. There aren’t many options for them right now. Erling Haaland is probably the best player for them, if they weren’t for the sanctions.
“I don’t know of any contact between Harry Kane and Chelsea.” Romano says that Chelsea knows Kane is invincible and Daniel Levy would not sell to a Premier League competitor.
Romano adds that Chelsea should have taken immediate action to sign a striker because it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a top-level player at this position.
“Erling Haaland is the ideal solution. However, it was impossible for Roman Abramovich to agree to that deal.”
“Erling Haaland would have been the ideal solution, but it was impossible to work on that deal due to the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich at the time.”
