Man City are keen to sign Kane and were reported to have tabled a bid of £100m

Harry Kane is in Tottenham Hotspur's squad for their Europa Conference League tie this week as Nuno Espirito Santo admits he cannot wait for the transfer window to close and end speculation over the striker's future.

Manchester City are keen to sign England captain Kane and were reported to have tabled a bid of £100m ($139m) in June.

Kane - who has three years remaining on his contract - stayed away from Tottenham's 1-0 victory over champions City in their Premier League opener Sunday.

However, The Times claims it is expected Kane will remain for one more season due to City's reluctance to meet Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's reported asking price of £160m.

The 28-year old Monday was named in Tottenham's strong 25-man squad for the Europa Conference League play-off against Pacos de Ferreira.

Nuno said he expected Kane to remain at the north London club, though he added he has enough experience to know Spurs should keep their options open regarding a move for a replacement.

Kane has made no secret of his desire to play for a club that can deliver silverware after years of frustration at Tottenham.

Kane's goals and a highly effective partnership with South Korean Son Heung-min have taken Tottenham close to winning trophies.

But they lost the 2019 Champions League final to Liverpool and last season's League Cup final against City.

Tottenham - whose last major trophy was the 2008 League Cup - have failed to qualify for Champions League football this season after finishing seventh last term. 

Kane has scored 221 goals for Tottenham, second only to Jimmy Greaves' 266, the club's all-time scoring record.
