The Poland international signed for Barcelona for a fee that could reach €50m earlier this month, bringing an end to his eight-year stay in Bavaria.

The Bundesliga champions managed to bring in Sadio Mane from Liverpool prior to Lewandowski's exit and head coach Julian Nagelsmann has since revealed he sees the Senegal star as a centre forward.

Nagelsmann has admitted he is an admirer of Harry Kane amid talk that he is a transfer target for next summer - a matter which has annoyed Tottenham boss Antonio Conte - and Kahn has said another number nine will not walk through the Allianz Arena doors this window.

"We are not going to sign a new striker. There’s no discussion, no way," Kahn told Bild.

"We still have options in the current team - [Joshua] Zirkzee, [Eric-Maxim] Choupo-Moting then the young Mathys Tel."

Despite Bayern's links to Kane, 90min understands he is happy at Spurs under Conte and initial contact was made earlier this summer regarding a new contract. However, neither party is in a rush to get a fresh deal finalised.
