The German champions have been linked with a move for the England captain in recent weeks and manager Julian Nagelsmann discussed a potential transfer earlier this weekend, though admitted Spurs' asking price would likely be too high for a deal to transpire.

This public courting of Kane infuriated Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte, who branded Bayern's behaviour as 'disrespectful'.

But Dier understands that Kane's 'world class' ability means that he is going to be talked about in such conversations.

"That's normal, no? I think every world class player is always going to be spoken about a lot," Dier said after Kane scored a brace in a 2-1 pre-season win at Rangers.

"In football you don't know what's going to happen tomorrow, let alone next week. It's not something I'm bothered about. It's normal that world class players are spoken about a lot."

90min understands that Kane and Tottenham are not rushing to finalise a new contract though do have a mutual interest in opening talks. The striker's current deal expires in 2024.
