Bring on the best. That is the message from star forward Harry Kane as Tottenham await their Champions League fate.

The draw for the Champions League round of 16 takes place in Nyon, Switzerland on Monday – Spurs progressing to the knockout phase as group winners ahead of holders Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Tottenham could face German champions Bayern Munich or Italian giants Juventus in the last 16, while Sevilla, Porto, Basel and Shakhtar Donetsk are also possible opponents for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

And England international Kane – who scored six goals during the group stage while he has tallied 12 in the Premier League following his two-goal haul in the 5-1 rout of Stoke City on Saturday – is not afraid of anyone.

Arsenal plot £30 million move for David Luiz .
Arsenal are reportedly planning a £30 million move for Chelsea’s David Luiz, according to the Daily Express. Arsene Wenger is looking at the 30-year-old as he looks to improve what has been a leaky defence so far this season for Arsenal. Luiz has been an outcast at Chelsea since having a fallout with manager Antonio Conte. The Brazilian has rarely featured since being dropped after the defeat to Roma in the Champions League. Conte reportedly wants Luiz back in the side, but the Brazilian is demanding regular first-team football. However, Arsenal face competition for the defender, with both Real Madrid and Juventus taking a keen interest in signing the Chelsea man. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is also reportedly interested in reuniting with Luiz, who the former Chelsea boss originally signed brought to Stamford Bridge. Luiz would bring Champions League and World Cup experience to the Arsenal defence. The 30-year-old can play at both centre-back and as a defensive midfielder, something that appeals to Wenger.
