Key Summary:

1. Harry Kane wants Tottenham to back Antonio Conte in the summer transfer window.

2. Kane believes the Italian can lead Spurs to a trophy.

3. Conte admitted that the January transfer window weakened his squad as they were unable to sign their top targets.

Harry Kane has reportedly told Daniel Levy he wants to be assured that Tottenham will back Antonio Conte in the summer transfer window before he commits his future to the club.

Kane tried to leave Spurs last summer, with Manchester City extremely keen on signing the England captain, but the club's chairman, Levy, refused to let the striker leave.

However, Kane seems happier now and believes Conte is the man who can end Spurs' wait for a trophy.

According to the Daily Mail, who quote the Sun, Kane has told the club that he will sign a new contract only if Conte is given the backing to sign his top targets.

The Italian admitted earlier this week that the January transfer window had, in fact, failed to improve his squad, despite the signings of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus.

"Four players left in January. Four important players for Tottenham, two have arrived. So even numerically instead of reinforcing, you may have, on paper, weakened," Conte said.

"Bentancur and Kulusevski are ideal prospects for Tottenham, because Tottenham are seeking young players they can develop and grow, not players who are ready.

"That is the issue. I have realised now that this is the vision of the club. It is inevitable that if you want to grow faster and if you want to be competitive more quickly you need players with a lot of experience because they also lead to an increase in experience in your team."

Conte also played down Spurs' chances to finish in the Champions League spots, telling beIN Sports: "Here it is strange because maybe I feel the one per cent possibility to finish fourth. The level of this league is very high and there is not a lot of space for other teams than the top teams."
