Antonio Conte has admitted he wants Tottenham striker Harry Kane to sign a new contract with the club.
After a dizzying 2021 during which he pushed for a move to Manchester City, the England captain is back at his best and scoring goals for Spurs, helping them up to third in the Premier League with a brace at Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
90min revealed back in July that neither Kane nor the club were in a rush to sign a new contract, with his current deal due to expire in 2024. He is happier under Antonio Conte than predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo and the Italian believes the club are trying to get him to pen fresh terms.
He said: “I have to be honest with you: I don’t know, I don’t know about this situation, I don’t know the details, honestly, honestly.
“You know we are talking about an important player for Tottenham. And the desire of everybody into the club is [for Kane] to continue to stay with Tottenham, to sign a new contract.
“But if you ask me about the details, about information, I cannot answer you.”
