ESPN claim that they have been informed by reliable sources that Spurs will not entertain any offers – no matter how sizeable – for their prized asset.
Only in February, the England international signed a new five-year contract, and Tottenham therefore believe they have no reason to consider selling the 21-year-old.
His record of 31 goals in all competitions last season, in a breakthrough campaign at White Hart Lane, has led to inevitable speculation that clubs could come knocking for his signature.
Just a few days ago, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy [via the Telegraph] reportedly informed Mauricio Pochettino that he does not wish to cash in on Harry Kane or Hugo Lloris – who are both rumoured targets for Louis van Gaal.

He wants Pochettino’s best players to stay put, as they look to mount a serious challenge to a place in the Premier League’s top four.
