Harry Kane has reportedly told Tottenham Hotspur that he wishes to leave the club in the summer and also wants to remain in the Premier League.
Harry Kane, one of the best strikers, if not the current best in the world, has been strongly linked with numerous clubs in previous years and despite the many plaudits he receives at Tottenham, the lack of trophies has always inevitably led to speculation about his future.
Even Harry Kane himself has spoken before on his desire to win trophies or compete on many occasions. Whilst his preference would obviously be winning those with his boyhood club, a dream he still harbors, that is starting to look increasingly unlikely as more and more time passes and the striker reaching the latter part of his career at 27 years old.
According to Sky Sports, the England international has just now informed the club that he wants to leave in the summer and, in a devastating twist to add salt to the wound, he apparently also included that he wishes to stay in the Premier League.
They have even claimed that Tottenham had already begun making enquiries about possible replacements for him, suggesting that it was expected to happen sooner or later and they may have been resigned to his departure.
Kane is currently joint-top with Salah in the race for the Golden Boot in the Premier League with 22 goals scored, and fascinatingly he is also top of the charts for assists, amassing a total of 13 assists this campaign.
He is currently the 7th all time leading goal scorer of all time in the league, and It is believed for that very reason he would likely prefer to stay in England as he looks to eventually overtake Alan Shearer who currently holds the record for the most goals, aged only 27 he looks set to complete this provided he continues his career in England.
It would be an extremely harsh blow to Spurs to lose their highly touted talisman, with Harry Kane consistently showing his capabilities, with astounding stats to accompany this, having struck 220 goals for Spurs.
Overtime Heroics understands that Kane is frustrated at Tottenham and missing out on the champions league seems to have been the last straw, with Spurs set for another trophyless campaign.
Harry Kane on His Future
“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” he said last month. “When I look back at the end of my career, these are the things I will go over and take in more but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies.
“I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that.”
“It is bittersweet, I would rather be winning team trophies and this one but it is what is.”
Needless to say, he will have a hefty price tag, and with the current financial climate being so volatile – it will be interesting to see his next destination and more so, who is willing to fork out such a large sum of money for Harry Kane.
