The transfer window is officially open, and Premier League teams are already moving to secure deals for the new season.

Manchester City will offer Tottenham two of their big-name players plus a considerable cash offer for Harry Kane, in the latest media reports doing the rounds.

The Tottenham striker is pushing for a summer exit after growing disillusioned at his club's lack of trophy success. That has led to solid speculation of moves to one of City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

And after plundering an impressive 221 goals in 336 appearances for Tottenham, it's easy to see why he's a man in demand.

However, his £150m valuation is proving a sticking point, even for moneybags City.

But The Sun reports City, who lead the way – and they are ready to propose the swap deal to win the race.

According to their exclusive, City plan to offer cash plus Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus for Kane.

Sterling has lost his place in the City side this season and reports at the weekend claimed he would be allowed to leave. That saw him linked with a shock £60m move to Arsenal.

Jesus, meanwhile, has struggled to convince Pep Guardiola he can be the long-term answer to replacing Sergio Aguero. And by offering him to Spurs, they could find an instant replacement for Kane.

The report claims Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could be tempted by the proposal, which is likely to include £40m in cash.
