England cruised through to the knockout stages of the World Cup with a 3-0 victory over Wales on Tuesday. 

The victory, which set up a last 16 tie against Senegal on Sunday, came courtesy of a brace from Marcus Rashford either side of a Phil Foden goal.

Captain Harry Kane once again endured a frustrating evening on a personal level, with the Tottenham Hotspur having failed to have a single shot on target in any of England’s first three games of the tournament.

Kane’s form will worry manager Gareth Southgate, although the striker’s teammates have taken on the goal scoring responsibility, with no player having provided more assists so far than Kane.

Domestically, the Englishman started the current season in superb form, and it appears that his below-par World Cup hasn’t put potential suitors off.

Kane was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich over the summer, and reports now suggest that the German side are still working on a deal.

As reported by Sky Sports Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, the Bundesliga champions remain interested in the striker.

Plettenberg does, however, claim that those in charge of the German club are sceptical as to how realistic a deal may be.

Kane is once again being linked with a move to Bayern Munich

The fee that Spurs would demand would reportedly be in the region of £80 million, which could deter Bayern, who rarely stump up huge amounts for players.

So far this season, Kane has scored 12 goals in 15 Premier League games, a tally bettered only by Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

The Citizens were heavily linked with a move for Kane last summer, before they ultimately opted to sign the Norway international.

Kane, 29, is contracted to The Lilywhites until the summer of 2024, although Spurs are believed to be keen to agree an extension with their talisman.

According to the new reports, the player will wait until after the World Cup to make a decision on his future, although he is unlikely to move during the upcoming January transfer window.

If he does refuse to extend his stay with Spurs, next summer’s window could represent their last chance to sell Kane at a significant price, before his value inevitably reduces as he nears the expiry of his deal.
