HARRY KANE remains Bayern Munich's No1 transfer target, according to reports.
The German giants were keen to try and prise the striker away from Tottenham last summer, but never got close to agreeing a deal.
Bayern lost Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, and still see Kane as the ideal long-term replacement.
According to Kicker, club bosses remain adamant that they can sign the England captain from his boyhood club.
Kane, who netted a penalty in the Three Lions' 3-3 draw with Germany last night, wanted out of Spurs during the summer of 2021, but is happy again in North London under Antonio Conte.
His contract at Tottenham expires in June 2024 and the forward is believed to be relaxed about the situation.

Kicker claim that Bayern have made "gentle" contact with Kane's representatives in the hope that he won't extend his stay at Spurs further than 2024.
Julian Nagelsmann's side could look to sign Tottenham's No10 on a free transfer at the end of next season.
Alternatively, they could try and test their resolve at the end of this season with one year remaining on the contract.
They managed to pull off a similar deal for Sadio Mane over the summer, when it became clear that the Senegalese ace wanted to leave Liverpool after six successful years.

Whether Kane would want to move abroad while chasing Alan Shearer's goalscoring record remains to be seen.
He has made no secret of his desire to catch the Newcastle legend and is now 71 strikes away from his 260 total – having moved above Andrew Cole into third in the all-time list already this season.
Speaking about Kane's future last month, Tottenham manager Conte urged him to extend his stay.
The Italian said: "My opinion is only one of a million opinions.
"We are talking about a world-class striker and a player who in this moment is the most representative player for Tottenham. For sure I would like him to sign a new contract.
"But in this moment, for me it is very important to see him happy, totally involved with this season, totally involved with this project and in what we are doing. For me, this is the most important.
"Then it's a decision that the player and the club have to take."
