Manchester city have made no secret they are searching for a striker in the upcoming transfer market. Harry Kane has just made the list as City plan to talk about a potential deal with the Tottenham striker.

Sky Sports has reported this week that the English striker has expressed interest in parting ways with his club. On Wednesday morning, Fabrizio Romano confirmed his desire to leave. As Spurs faced a home loss Wednesday vs Aston Villa, many speculate whether it was the last match for Kane in their home stadium.

Since the Tottenham forward naturally prefers to remain in the Premier League, Chelsea and Manchester United are also amongst the rumored clubs to have a strong desire in signing the 27-year-old.

Although City have made it clear they are in need of a striker, and join the line in a potential deal with Kane, they have remained with a record transfer fee of less than £65m thus far. However, with Kane’s price at approximately £150million, we are left wondering whether City are willing to pay more than the average for one of the top goal scorers this season in the Premier League.

If Spurs are willing to sell their top forward, who still has a three year contract with the team, it will be a potentially very expensive transfer for City.

Should Manchester City buy the striker?
