Spurs boss Nuno Espirito says Harry Kane is our player

Tottenham manager
Nuno Espirito Santo issued a hands off warning to clubs interested in Harry
Kane on Friday amid speculation over the England captain’s future.

Kane is reportedly keen to leave his boyhood club this
summer in the search for the first silverware of his career.

Despite Kane’s efforts in winning the Premier League Golden
Boot last season, Spurs have missed out on Champions League football for the
second consecutive season.

And England’s heartbreaking Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy
on penalties means the 27-year-old is still yet to win a major trophy in his
career for club or country.

Premier League champions Manchester City have been strongly
linked with a move for Kane as they look to replace all-time top goalscorer
Sergio Aguero, who has moved to Barcelona on a free transfer.

But former Wolves boss Nuno, who was appointed as Jose
Mourinho’s successor, is expecting his prized asset to return to Tottenham for
pre-season training after a short break following his efforts at the European
Championship.

“Harry is our player. That is period. No need to talk
about anything else,” said the Portuguese, who was finally appointed on
June 30, over two months on from Mourinho’s sacking.

“Now is the moment for Harry to recover his energy and
when Harry comes again we will have time to speak and have good conversations.

“I am looking forward to him joining the group and
start working together. I am excited to work with all the players, Harry is a
top player. Harry is one of the best players in the world, that is all there is
to say.”

Nuno is working under new director of football Fabio
Paratici and performance director Steve Hitchen, but an expected summer
overhaul of the Spurs squad is off to a slow start with no new signings made.

“We have been talking, we are aware that there is a lot
of work to be done,” added Nuno.

“It is not easy, we have to find the right players that
can join us.

“Steve and Fabio, they do their job, look at the
market, I do my job on the training ground and then we share ideas. To improve
our squad is not easy.”

Nuno’s first competitive game in charge is just over four
weeks away when City open their Premier League defence at the Tottenham Hotspur
Stadium on August 15.
