Harry Kane of Tottenham has not spoken to Chelsea about a move, and it seems quite improbable that Spurs will sell their best player to one of their main rivals.
The England international has been linked with Chelsea, but Fabrizio Romano has shot down this specific tidbit of transfer rumours in the most recent instalment of his exclusive CaughtOffside blog.
Kane is an established member of the team, and Romano makes it obvious that Tottenham believes he is untouchable for the moment.

However, following a terrible summer in which Romelu Lukaku went on loan and other acquisitions were difficult to come by, Chelsea could really need a quality signing up front.
Harry Kane joining Chelsea doesn’t seem likely
Erling Haaland is likely the player who would have been best for the Blues, if not for the penalties placed on them at the time. However, Romano believes the Blues may have left things a little too late because there aren’t many perfect possibilities available to them right now.
“I’m not aware of any communication between Harry Kane and Chelsea. Daniel Levy wouldn’t sell to a Premier League opponent, and Chelsea are aware of this, according to Romano.
He adds: “In my opinion, Chelsea should have already taken action on a new striker as it’s becoming difficult to find a top-level player in this position.
“Erling Haaland would have been the ideal solution, but it was impossible to work on that deal due to the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich at the time.”
