Tottenham transfer target Joao Felix
Joao Felix is attracting interest from the Premier League again.

Tottenham are in the hunt to sign Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix this summer if Harry Kane leaves the club, according to reports.

Kane could leave north London this summer with interest from Bayern Munich as he enters the final year of his contract at Spurs.

That has seen Tottenham linked with Brentford’s Ivan Toney and Eintract Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani over the last couple of days, as well as other strikers.

And now Spanish publication Fichajes has claimed that Spurs are the latest team ‘to join the list of candidates to take over the services of’ Felix, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea.

A number of Premier League clubs have already been linked to Felix and new Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou sees the Portugal international as the ‘ideal relief’ if they lose Kane.

Felix’s current ‘desire’ is to leave Atletico Madrid for Paris Saint-Germain and not the Premier League but there is always a chance he will ‘have to settle for another destination’.

Felix isn’t the only forward that PSG are interested in with French publication Foot Mercato insisting that the Ligue 1 club are readying an ‘offer that Tottenham cannot refuse’ for Kane.

There are rumours that Bayern are prepared to pay €80m for Kane but, despite not giving details, Foot Mercato seem to hint that PSG’s offer would be much more.

Speaking yesterday, Bayern Munich’s honorary president Uli Hoeness is confident that the Bundesliga champions will sign Kane this summer with the Bavarians determined to “get him”.

“He [Kane] signalled very clearly that his decision was made. And if it stays that way, we’ll get him,” Hoeness said.

“Levy is clever. First we have to get him to name a price. He plays for time, is a great professional. I appreciate him very much. But on the other side [at Bayern] there aren’t any people who have been doing this since yesterday.

“He wants to play internationally [in Europe]. Tottenham won’t be there next season, unlike our club. He now has another opportunity to come to a top club in Europe.

“What we really like about Kane is that his advisors, that is his father and his brother, are very pleasant. So far they have always stood by what they have promised. And if it stays that way, then that’s okay.”
