The England international could leave north London behind this summer

Tottenham are prepared to make Richarlison their main man if Harry Kane leaves for Bayern Munich, reports say.

The north London giants have rejected three bids for Kane so far this summer, with the latest turned down on Monday.

However, The Times say Tottenham are growing increasingly resigned to losing Kane just days before the start of the new Premier League season.

And if the 30-year-old does end up moving to the Bundesliga, then Richarlison is primed to become Spurs' main man.

Big things were expected of the Brazil international when he joined the club from Everton 12 months ago.

However, the 26-year-old netted just one Premier League goal from 27 outings last term as the club failed to qualify for the Champions League.

While Tottenham would give Richarlison greater responsibility in the event of any Kane exit, they're still prepared to spend some of the money generated from a potential sale.

The report says they're poised to step up their interest in Gent hitman Gift Orban.

And they also want to bring in a new centre-back and midfielder as they look to finish in the top four.

Perr Schuurs is being tracked, with Torino slapping a £28 million price tag on the 23-year-old.

And several other players could join Kane out of the exit door.

Tottenham are actively looking to offload Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga, while Joe Rodon is primed to move to Championship side Leeds.

Djed Spence is another player surplus to requirements, having spent just a year at the club so far.

Tottenham, to this point, have insisted Kane will stay.

But Bayern are confident they'll be able to acquire their main target and a transfer could be just days away from being agreed.

Meanwhile, BILD reporter Raimund Hinko recently launched a scathing attack on Kane and insisted Bayern should look elsewhere.

"Of course, I wish I had never had to write that letter," he said.

"Perhaps it's a last-ditch effort to keep you, who watch over the weal and woe of FC Bayern, from spending €100m or more on a - sorry - 30-year-old bone.

"Although I apologise again to all players over 30, there are quite a number of mature, experienced professionals who have stayed young, who are in top shape, and whose careers are only just beginning at 30.

"Why the hell are Tottenham now even making fun of FC Bayern and spreading rumours that they want to buy Mathys Tel (Bayern's 18-year-old French forward).

"You can't let Tottenham show you up, dear Bayern officials. Don't ridicule.

"Who are they from this London suburb anyway? English champions in Stone Age football 62 and 72 years ago."
