In a recent interview with BILD TV (via talkSPORT), Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane. Salihamidzic said,
“He (Kane) is one of the best players in the world.
“But we are not talking about players who are under contract with other clubs.”
Kane’s Impressive Run Of Form At North London This Season
Kane is enjoying a good run of form at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during this campaign after performing at a high level for them over the past few months. The 29-year-old has found the back of the net on 11 occasions and secured two assists in 16 matches for the North London club this season across various competitions.
The London-born talent has led the line well by averaging 3.8 shots, 2.0 key passes and 0.9 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. However, he could improve his link-up play a little in the final third as he completed 73.2% of his attempted passes in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Should Bayern Munich Boss Julian Nagelsmann Move In For Kane?
Kane excels at creating a yard of space for himself to get a few shots in on-target and has got the vision to cut open the opponent’s defence with a decisive pass on the attacking end of the field. The England international is one of the most prolific goal-scorers in world football and would no doubt be an excellent signing for Bayern Munich next year.
Standing at 1.88m, Kane can use his strong frame to overpower the opposition defenders at times but lacks the pace these days to get in behind the opponent’s backline.
At the moment, Kane is playing some of the best football of his career and is more than capable of making an immediate impact at the Allianz Arena if Julian Nagelsmann decides to sign him at the end of this campaign. At 29, the English centre-forward might still have a few good years left in him to play at his best. Hence, he won’t have any trouble settling into life in Germany.
We can expect Kane to inject a lot of goals into the Bavarian club’s attack and could serve as an ideal replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who left Bayern Munich in favour of a move to Barcelona last summer. Thus, Nagelsmann should consider moving in for the Tottenham Hotspur star either when the transfer window reopens in January or next summer.
