Tottenham Hotspur have turned down an approach from Napoli for star striker Harry Kane, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
The homegrown hero is an essential member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad and finished as the Premier League’s top goalscorer last season.

Kane is the figurehead of Spurs’ fluent attacking system and is one of the most-feared centre forwards in the English game.
The latest report suggests that Napoli are on the hunt for a new striker and have money to spend after selling Gonzalo Higuain to domestic rivals Juventus for £75 million.
It is believed that the Serie A side’s inquiry regarding Kane was immediately rejected by the White Hart Lane side, who stated that the England international attacker was not for sale.
Keeping Tottenham’s best players together will be the task that Pochettino has now and over future transfer windows, with plenty of suitors circling the North London club.
The team work ethic and collective effort of last season’s team was a key reason for the club’s third-placed finish and selling Kane would have a devastating effect.
