Transfer News: Harry Kane informs friends he wants Tottenham exit
A product of the Tottenham youth academy, Kane has grown into one of the best centre-forwards in the game over the past half-a-decade or so. A prolific goalscorer, the England captain has plundered 219 goals for us in 331 matches. He has been in particularly lethal form in the 2020/21 season, banging in 31 goals and setting up 16 more in 44 games so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)
For all his exploits on the field, Kane is yet to win a single major trophy in his senior football career. The Carabao Cup presented the likeliest avenue for that run to end last week but Tottenham ended up losing 1-0 to Manchester City in the final.
While speculations of Kane leaving Tottenham had been doing the rounds well before that, they have only intensified after the loss to the Cityzens in the final. His recent comments, about how he yearns to win a team trophy, after he was named the Player of the Year at the 2021 London Football Awards have further fueled the fire.
Now, it is being claimed that Kane has already made up his mind on what’s next in his future. As per Football Insider‘s sources, Kane has already told his friends that he is “hell bent” on securing a transfer away from Tottenham and join a Premier League giant.
It is said that Kane remains intent on breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record and wants to stay in England. A move though will not be easy given Daniel Levy’s stance on the matter.

The Tottenham chairman does not want to sell the striker and even if he does concede ground on that stand, he is unwilling to sanction a transfer to another Premier League side. (h/t Football Insider)
Add to it, the £125m-plus would make it difficult for clubs to fund a move amidst the pandemic-affected market. It remains to be seen as to how this story develops in the coming weeks.
