Tottenham have an interest in Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus – creating the possibility of a cash-plus-swap deal for Harry Kane.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will drive a hard deal if England captain Kane is to get his wish to join City.
But the Daily Star Sunday understands that an offer of Jesus, valued at £70 million, PLUS a similar amount in cash could tempt Tottenham.
City boss Pep Guardiola would be reluctant to lose Brazil's Jesus, 24 but making him part of the deal could be a cheaper way of landing Kane, 28.
City may prefer to offer Dutch defender Nathan Ake, 26, instead, but Jesus would give Spurs a direct replacement for their key England striker.
The whole situation, though, is complicated by Tottenham being without a manager.
If Mauricio Pochettino makes a sensational return to Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain, he wouldn't want to come back to find that Kane had gone.
But there is no guarantee that Poch returning would alter Kane's desire to join a club where he has more chance of winning the game's major trophies.
Kane has a hectic summer ahead of him with Euro 2020 set to be his focus very soon.
And it appears unlikely that the striker's future will be totally resolved before the tournament gets underway next month.
