Tottenham Hotspur welcome Nottingham Forest to north London on Saturday, just days after they crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of AC Milan. 

The two sides drew 0-0 in the capital on Wednesday, but the Italian champions’ 1-0 first leg victory was enough to see them progress.

The Lilywhites now face a 15th consecutive season without silverware, and the futures of both manager Antonio Conte and striker Harry Kane have once again been cast into doubt.

Former Chelsea boss Conte looks increasingly unlikely to stay with the club beyond the end of the current season, while England captain Kane continues to be linked with a move away from the club.

Now, Tottenham’s plan to keep hold of their talismanic striker has been revealed.

According to 90min, Spurs plan to include the Englishman in discussions over the future of the club in a bid to persuade him to sign a contract extension.

The striker’s current deal is set to expire next summer, meaning the upcoming summer transfer window could represent Tottenham’s last chance to sell the player for a significant fee.

The club have been keen to agree an extension with Kane for a while now, but the two parties have so far failed to agree terms.

With that in mind, Tottenham are now ready to include the player in key talks over subjects including the appointment of a new head coach.

Manchester United and German champions Bayern Munich are believed to be among the clubs that would be interested in signing Kane, while Manchester City were allegedly close to doing so two years ago, before eventually landing Erling Haaland instead.

Since making his debut for the club back in 2011, Kane has scored 268 goals in 423 games for the club across all competitions, as well as providing 63 assists.

The striker recently became the club’s all-time leading scorer, but his future in north London looks increasingly uncertain.
