Harry Kane is possibly one of the best strikers in the world of football at the moment and it isn’t a surprise that other clubs are eyeing him. The Englishman has scored 4 goals for us so far this season and seems set to break a few other records as we look to continue our development under Mauricio Pochettino.
The 24-year-old striker won the Golden boot last season and with the club not picking up any trophies in recent seasons, Tim Sherwood stated that the Englishman would be looking to leave in the future, especially when the bigger clubs come calling.
Our manager responded to those claims prior to our game against West Ham United and was quoted by Squawka:
“Some people are also saying we must win trophies for Harry to stay with us but it’s already been made very clear.
“He’s one of our best strikers, Harry is our player, he loves Tottenham, he’s staying here and he’s looking forward to staying here for a long time.
“Tim (Sherwood) has the right to speak about Tottenham and Harry. But that is a question more for Harry and what he’s going to do. The answer is Harry has the power and decision to say what he wants to do in the future.”
Kane scored 35 goals from just 38 games for us last season and won his second Golden boot last time around. He would be looking to pick up that accolade for a third year running.
What Sherwood actually nailed was the fact that we have to pick up trophies to keep hold of our best players. Money is obviously a factor, that we won’t be able to battle the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona for the high wages paid but if we become successful and win accolades, we will be an attractive side for many.
For now, Kane has not stated that he is looking to move away from our team as we are on the cusp of building something great. This is a project that is on the right track and letting Kane leave, no matter how much money may be paid, will be a major blow not only for our side but also our fans.
Pochettino has his work cut out as we are battling against the financial might of Manchester City and Manchester United but if Kane can keep on scoring goals, we just might win something this season.
