What does this mean for Harry Kane’s future?
There may be concerns that Martinez’s potential arrival brings further doubt to Kane’s future.
The Spurs star is believed to want a move away, with Manchester City interested.
But The Times say that Martinez’s arrival will not change their stance on Kane.
Spurs are insisting that the two will play upfront together should they complete a deal for the Inter Milan star.
They could form a devastating partnership should they line up together.
