Ansu Fati contact

Tottenham could make a shock move for Barcelona star Ansu Fati in the latter stages of the summer transfer window if their pursuit of Nottingham Forest star Brennan Johnson draws a blank.

Ange Postecoglou has identified the Wales international as his priority attacking target, however he will be difficult to sign and therefore Spurs have looked at alternatives.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham made contact with Barcelona to be informed of Fati's situation with Chelsea also being offered the chance to sign the Spain international as they also seek to make a new attacking signing in the final days of the current trading period.

Harry Kane's 'perfect team'

Former Tottenham striker Harry Kane has claimed that Bayern Munich is the 'perfect team' for him following his £100m move to the Bundesliga.

The 30-year-old has already hit the ground running with his new side, scoring three goals and finding an assist in just his first two matches under new boss Thomas Tuchel.

He highlighted the family feeling around the club as one of the many reasons why he'd enjoyed being there both on and off the pitch, claiming that he's ready for the experience to fight for titles.
