Bayern Munich have reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to sign Harry Kane, sources in Germany indicate.

A proposal from the Bundesliga side, believed to be worth more than €100million (£86.4m, $110m), was accepted by their Premier League counterparts on Wednesday.

Kane must now decide whether or not he will make the move.

The 30-year-old wanted the situation resolved before Tottenham’s opening fixture of the season at Brentford on Sunday.

He is known to be enjoying life under new Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou and has been leaning towards staying.

But it is unclear how the striker will react to this development.

Kane is into the final 12 months of his contract and Tottenham want to tie him to fresh terms.

There has been no progress on that so far, which has led the club to consider selling their talisman in the current transfer window rather than running the risk of losing him as a free agent next summer.

Bayern had seen three bids for Kane rejected, with the first made in June, but they have since made a breakthrough after increasing the offer.

Kane is reluctant to embark upon a transfer once the 2023-24 campaign begins and has been encouraged by Postecoglou’s early impact.

He played a full part in Tottenham’s summer tour to Australia and Singapore before scoring four goals in a 5-1 win home against Shakhtar Donetsk on Sunday.

Postecoglou admitted after that game that he was in “open dialogue” with Kane and the club over a potential switch, but warned of the need for an outcome soon for the sake of all parties.

Analysis by Tottenham correspondent Tim Spiers

Bayern want Kane and Kane has appeared to want to move to Bayern. The talks wouldn’t have lasted this long if the striker hadn’t expressed a strong interest in joining the perennial German champions. It’s been believed throughout the summer that Kane doesn’t have an interest in entering negotiations to join any other side this window.
