Conte: I would pick Kane if I had to sign a striker”

And now it turns out that Kyle Walker was also in Chelsea's sights, with Antonio Conte's side holding preliminary talks with Tottenham about a deal for the England player, before Manchester City eventually landed him in a deal worth £50million. "If you go to buy Kane now it would be at least £100 million".

Conte, whose Blues have spent £119m so far this summer, told BBC Sport: "If [Spurs] don't win the title, it's not a tragedy".

"The first thing they should have is good patience". If their ambitions are to fight for the title or try to win the Champions League, you must buy expensive players.

19-year-old Davies played 24 games in the English Premier League last season.

A traditional centre forward, Kane has been the Premier League's top goal-scorer for the last two seasons. You must understand this.

Paper Round's view: It's hardly a surprise that Kane would've caught the eye of Conte, or any number of managers of Europe's top clubs, for that matter.

The England global has won the Premier League's Golden Boot for the past two seasons, and has scored more league goals since February 2016 than Morata has in his entire professional career. You must understand the status of the team.

"He's a complete player".

"Sometimes, young players think they can play easily in the first team, but that's not true".

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has had his say on Kane, telling The Mirror that the Spurs hero is the one striker he would buy if he could - ahead of the likes of Luis Suarez, Gonzalo Higuain, Robert Lewandowski and Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe.

Chelsea have failed in their pursuits of Danilo and Benjamin Mendy - with both also joining City - while their attempt to sign Juventus' Alex Sandro appears to have also ended negatively. Otherwise you continue to stay in your level.
