Tottenham star Harry Kane has failed to turn up to the first day of the club’s pre-season training campaign amid significant interest from Manchester City,

The England forward has been linked with a switch to Pep Guardiola’s City since the start of the British summer with that talk intensifying during England’s Euro 2020 campaign.

City tabled a £100 million (AU$189million) offer to Tottenham earlier in the year with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy adamant Kane wouldn’t leave the club.

“I am never going to talk about any specific player in public,” Levy said on the club’s website.

“All I will say is his frustrations in not winning are shared by me and all the fans and players. We all want to win.

“One of the items that (Spurs’ managing director) Fabio (Paratici) will have to deal with when he comes in is which players are going to be retained, which will be asked to look for other clubs.

“There is a market out there. What we want and what other clubs want is not always possible to achieve. We will do whatever is right for the club.”

Kane was due to return to training on Monday morning (UK time) but failed to show up after being granted a “short holiday” following England’s Euro 2020 final defeat.

City, who have also been linked to Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, have made no secret of their desire to replace Sergio Aguero.

“We’re losing a very important legend in Sergio, they are very hard shoes to fill,” chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said in June.

“I’m confident we will find the right player to fill those shoes.

“There are other areas that need investment, not too many. But it’s not about numbers – it’s about quality.

“It’s a phenomenal squad – you don’t win the Premier League and get to the Champions League final without an incredible squad.

“We have that but will bring quality into the squad in a couple of key positions.”

Harry Kane is set to be fined after reportedly failed to turn up for his scheduled pre-season tests with Tottenham on Monday.

It comes amid mounting speculation the striker wants to force a move to Manchester City.

England captain Kane was due back at Tottenham’s training headquarters for a coronavirus test and a fitness assessment following his three-week holiday after Euro 2020.

However, it was widely reported Kane did not make an appearance at Tottenham’s Enfield base, sparking fresh talk that he is determined to engineer a transfer to Premier League champions Manchester City.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano says this week will be key in determining Kane’s future at Tottenham, with Manchester City prepared to make a move.

“I expect some complicated weeks ahead, because the situation is really, really tense,” he told Sky Sports News’ ‘The Transfer Show’.

“I think this week everything will be clear. Tottenham need to take a position, and Manchester City are ready if their position changes.

“This week will be key to understand what will happen.”

Sky Sports News’ Kaveh Solhekol admitted he was shocked by Kane’s actions.

“I cannot remember Harry Kane ever putting a foot wrong at Tottenham, but unless there is an innocent explanation, he appears to have put a foot wrong today,” he said on ‘The Transfer Show’.

“He’s effectively gone on strike, disrespected the club, the supporters, and his team-mates. He’s got three years left on his contract but is behaving like someone with a year left on his contract.

“It was his decision to sign a six-year contract three years ago, and if Spurs don’t want to sell him, they don’t have to sell him. The power rests with Spurs at the moment.”

Tottenham may have the leverage according to Solhekol but The Athletic’s Oliver Kay reported Kane had no choice but to make a statement.

“Kane, barely halfway through a six-year contract, feels he has to do something drastic to break the stalemate,” Kay wrote.

“If Kane gets the move he wants, he will come to look back at this as a means to an end.

“Given Levy’s reputation for playing hardball, he was not likely to get to City by being polite and doing things by the book.

“It is a stand-off, with Kane’s leverage severely reduced by the three years remaining on his contract, and right now it is hard to see how it will be resolved by the deadline on August 31, let alone by the time Tottenham play City on the opening day of the Premier League season on August 15.

“It seemed unlikely that Kane would play any part in that game. Now it looks almost unfeasible.”

Tottenham, who ironically face Pep Guardiola’s team on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season, have declined to comment about Kane’s absence.

The 28-year-old went public with his desire to leave Tottenham at the end of last season.

Kane has grown frustrated at Tottenham’s failure to win a major trophy since 2008, with their latest letdown coming in last season’s League Cup final defeat against Manchester City.

He believes he has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Tottenham which allows him to move this year.

But with three years left on his contract, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has no intention of selling his club’s prized asset, who is valued at around £150 million ($A283 million).

Kane has been in the Bahamas following England’s Euro 2020 final loss to Italy.

With the top-flight season due to start on August 13, Kane appears to intend to push for a move.

It could be a rocky road for Kane if he steps up his demand to leave, with some Tottenham fans expressing their anger at his training ground snub on social media.

New Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo was reportedly assured Kane would not be sold during discussions before he took charge.

Nuno said last month that Kane could be “counted on” next season.
