Harry Kane would be a perfect fit for Bayern Munich and is approaching his “last chance” to join a true European giant, according to Dietmar Hamann.
Tottenham’s latest European exit has turned the focus towards head coach Antonio Conte and striker Kane, both of whom face uncertain futures.
Unlike Conte, Kane has a contract with Spurs that runs beyond the end of this season, and that could complicate his prospects of a move away from London.
Manchester United are reported to have Kane on their shopping list, while Bayern are known to be long-time admirers of the England captain.
Hamann, who played in the Premier League for Newcastle United, Liverpool and Manchester City, sees why Bayern, another of his former clubs, would be keen if there was a chance of taking Kane.
The former Germany midfielder said Kane, who this season has become Tottenham’s all-time record scorer, “would fit wonderfully into the Bayern team”.
“Bayern have many fast wide players who can give them many chances,” Hamann told German broadcaster Sky Sport.
He recommended Kane’s “good eye for his team-mates and very good technique”.
“That’s why he could be very interesting for Bayern,” Hamann said. “I would like to see him play for a team that can win the Champions League
“He’s turning 30 and it would probably be his last chance this summer or next to do anything else.”
Kane helped Tottenham reach the 2019 Champions League final, where they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool.
Spurs have not threatened to repeat such a run, and they bowed out tamely to Milan at the last-16 stage this week after a goalless draw at home saw them lose 1-0 on aggregate.
Bayern, by contrast, won the 2020 edition and have backed that up with three consecutive quarter-final runs, getting past star-studded Paris Saint-Germain this week to reach the last eight.

“If you want to win the Champions League, there are few addresses that are better than FC Bayern,” Hamann said. “They are there every year and have a great squad.”
Kane this week said Tottenham should be challenging for silverware and that a push for a top-four finish in the Premier League was insufficient.
And if there is a nagging doubt about Kane in Hamann’s mind, it is that the man who is England’s 53-goal joint-record scorer, alongside Wayne Rooney, has not already won big in his career, notably at international level.
“He’s scored in important games for the national team, but the English haven’t won a trophy either,” Hamann said.
