HARRY KANE

Real Madrid are considering a summer bid of £177m for Tottenham star Harry Kane, according to the Express.

Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is understood to be a keen admirer of Kane, but even a £177 million approach would be difficult to turn down by Spurs.

The 23-year-old clinched the Golden Boot for the second straight season last term with 29 Premier League goals, holding off Romelu Lukaku by four strikes.

The England star has continued his impressive form this season, scoring 13 goals in eight matches for club and country in September.

RATING: 6/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

It is unlikely the 23-year-old will leave the Wembley Stadium any time soon, however, if a significant Real Madrid bid is to be submitted it may be difficult for Daniel Levy not to cash in on the club’s prized asset.

With Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema unsure of their futures at the Bernabeau, Florentino Perez will do everything in his power to assemble the best strike force in the world again.

ALEX SANDRO

Chelsea are ready to renew their interest in Juventus defender Alex Sandro, according to the Mirror.

The Blues missed out on the Brazilian during the summer but he is yet to sign fresh terms in Turin.

The 26-year-old would become the club’s record signing at £60 million if he is to put pen to paper on a deal at Stamford Bridge.

Sandro, who has three years left on his current deal at Juventus, is considered a vital cog in Massimiliano Allegri’s side.

He was impressive during Juve’s treble winning campaign last term, scoring three goals and providing five assists in 43 appearances.

RATING: 6/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Given that Antonio Conte used to work with the player and more importantly, as wing-back, there’s every chance that he’d want to bring him to England.

However, Marcos Alonso has been a revelation on the left side and the quoted price is a bit steep for someone who is guaranteed a starting berth.

It would make sense for Conte to draft in a defender for a cheaper cost, but with the ludicrous price of some players in the summer transfer window so far, anything seems possible.

DAEL FRY

Chelsea and Manchester United are monitoring Middlesbrough’s high-rated defender Dael Fry, according to Teamtalk .

The 20-year-old has cemented his place in the starting line-up this season and has caught the eye of leading Premier League clubs after a series of outstanding displays.

RATING: 4/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Fry is clearly one of the most talented youngsters in England.

Although a move to the Premier League may happen at some point in the future should he continue to improve, it would suit the 20-year-old better to stay at the Riverside for another season to further his development – especially with first team action guaranteed.
