“I’m not aware of any contact” – Fabrizio Romano believes Chelsea have no chance of signing 29-year-old forward


Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea have not made contact with Tottenham Hotspur over the transfer of Harry Kane this summer. The Italian journalist has told Caught Offside that Spurs consider the England captain 'untouchable' at the club.

The player himself also feels settled at the club under manager Antonio Conte. Romano also believes that the club's chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to sell his star player to their London rivals.

The club is preparing for a season back in the Champions League, having enjoyed a successful pre-season on and off the pitch. Romano stated:

"I’m not aware of any contact between Chelsea and Harry Kane. Chelsea understand that Kane is untouchable, and Daniel Levy wouldn’t sell to a Premier League rival."

Sky Sports claimed last year that Kane told his boyhood club that he wanted to leave North London in order to pursue a move to Premier League champions Manchester City. However, with the 29-year-old's contract running until 2024, Kane was forced to stay put and the Cityzens signed Erling Haaland earlier this summer instead.

Meanwhile, the Blues are still looking for a centre-forward to replace Romelu Lukaku, who rejoined Inter Milan following a disastrous return to Stamford Bridge last term. Timo Werner and Armando Broja are the only recognized centre- forwards at the west London club.

Kane endured a slow start last season, but picked up midway through and ended up scoring 27 goals and providing 10 assists in 50 appearances for Spurs. Despite his individual brilliance, the England captain is yet to get his hands on silverware.
