Harry Kane latest: Striker to miss Tottenham’s Conference League tie, Danny Levy not answering Man City calls
The Premier League summer transfer window has largely centered around Harry Kane.
The forward has been heavily linked with Manchester City, with reports of a second bid being prepared by the Sky Blues emerging last week:

Before this, there were rumours that the striker had refused to turn up to training. Claims denied by Kane himself:

Then, Kane would be left out of Tottenham’s opening weekend win vs Manchester City for fitness reasons.
Kane to miss out vs Ferreira
Despite his continuing transfer saga and not being at all involved vs Man City, Kane was then somewhat surprisingly included in Spurs’ 25-man squad to face Ferreira in the Europa Conference League on Thursday:

Now though, a fresh report from the Telegraph has stated that, despite being named in the original squad, Kane is not expected to travel to Portugal for Thursday’s game.
Again though, that is said to be due to his fitness levels, not the transfer issue.
The same report, however, does provide some more detail on the Manchester City transfer saga, including claiming that chairman Daniel Levy has not honoured a specific meeting at the end of the 2019/20 season where Kane was promised he could leave if Spurs underachieved the next season.
Also, it is reported that City have made a £125m bid, but Levy is refusing to sell and is no longer accepting calls:
