Tottenham have given Harry Kane permission to travel to Germany and complete a move to Bayern Munich, according to reports.

The clubs are reported to have settled in principle on terms for the England captain to move to Germany after a series of bids earlier in the summer were rejected, according to reports citing sources in Germany.

An agreement between the clubs leaves it up to 30-year-old Kane to decide whether he wishes to stay at Spurs or accept the Bundesliga champions’ offer.

Kane is about to enter the final year of his Tottenham contract, meaning he would be free to leave for nothing in 12 months’ time, and could begin negotiating with other clubs as early as January.

Chairman Daniel Levy is believed to value the striker closer to £120m, but the risk of the club’s star asset departing for free in under a year has underscored negotiations with Bayern.

And The Athletic‘s David Ornstein now claims that Kane has ‘received approval from Tottenham to complete his proposed transfer to Bayern Munich’ with the fee believed to be €100m (£86.4m).

Ornstein adds: ‘The 30-year-old striker is set to leave for Germany this morning, with medical tests and the signing of a four-year contract scheduled by Bayern to take place today.

‘Kane is expected to wear the No 9 shirt after agreeing on Thursday night to join the Bundesliga champions.

‘Earlier in the day, The Athletic reported that Tottenham had accepted an offer worth more than €100million (£86.4m, $110m) from Bayern.’

Reports previously claimed that Kane been keen to stay in England in order to pursue Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League scoring record of 260.

He has netted 213 times in the top flight since making his Spurs debut in 2012.

The England international was the subject of interest from Manchester United earlier in the summer, but the club opted instead to target less costly alternatives in a bid to stay within their transfer budget.

Spurs supporters sang “we want you to stay” during Sunday’s 5-1 friendly victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, new manager Ange Postecoglou’s first home game in charge.

The team begin their Premier League campaign away to Brentford on Sunday, with Kane reportedly keen for his future to have been decided by then.
