Tottenham Hotspur ‘have opened talks with Harry Kane over a new contract’ amid interest in the England captain from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
The 27-year-old striker is contract to Spurs until the summer of 2024, having agreed his last contract with the club back in 2018.
But, according to The Independent, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is eager to keep his star man as happy as possible amid interest from elsewhere and initial dialogue has started.

Kane, 27, is content to remain at Tottenham so long as Jose Mourinho’s team are competitive
Any new deal would undoubtedly mean an increase on Kane’s current £200,000-a-week wage.
Reports last week suggested that City have identified Kane as their successor to Sergio Aguero and are preparing a £90million offer in the summer.
Former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino could also be interested in a reunion with Kane following his appointment at PSG – especially if Kylian Mbappe moves to Real Madrid.
The Independent report that Kane is happy to remain at Spurs as long as they are competing for the silverware that has so far eluded him during a free-scoring career.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be keen to protect Kane’s value if other clubs are interested
Kane converted a penalty as Tottenham beat Leeds United 3-0 on Saturday afternoon
Jose Mourinho is trying to end Spurs’ trophy drought and they have a Carabao Cup semi-final against Championship club Brentford this week.
Kane’s game has also evolved under Mourinho, with the striker forming a superb understanding with Son Heung-min and showing more willingness to drop deeper and link the play during counter-attacks.
It has led to a phenomenal return of 17 goals and 14 assists in all competitions for Spurs so far this season.
Kane added to his tally with a penalty in Saturday’s 3-0 home win over Leeds United and then set up Son to score the second goal.
