Tottenham fans are running out of superlatives to describe Harry Kane.

On Sunday, his brace against Liverpool helped Spurs to a 4-1 win and re-established the 24-year-old as the Premier League's top scorer.

To top it all off, he now has more league goals in English football than Cristiano Ronaldo, surpassing the Portuguese's tally of 84 in 72 fewer games.

Unfortunately for Spurs, when they have a player like that on their hands, there is inevitably going to be speculation that Europe's elite clubs are set to come calling.

The stand-in England captain has been most heavily linked with Real Madrid.

It was rather convenient then, that he had the opportunity to play in front of Los Blancos chiefs in the Bernabeu during Spurs' recent Champions League 1-1 draw.

For many, that game was his big audition. While he undoubtedly loves Tottenham and has spoken about being a one-club man, no-one can predict how he would respond if Madrid actually made an approach.

Daniel Levy can count himself lucky, though, as Marca report that no such offer is imminent, at least not in January.

Spurs are safe - for now 

According to the Spanish publication, Kane is not a genuine target and the European champions are only monitoring him, along with numerous other players.

In last week's game, they were not overly impressed by his performance, although he did play a key role in the visitors' goal, tricking Raphael Varane into putting the ball into his own net.

The second reason for their lack of urgency is that Real are not actively pursuing another striker. Ultimately, it's unlikely that they'll be moving for the double Golden Boot winner soon.


Zinedine Zidane lost Alvaro Morata to Chelsea in the summer and could only look on as Karim Benzema was thwarted by the brilliance of Hugo Lloris.

Kane is not set to replace the 29-year-old, as Zizou remains a big fan of his compatriot.

So as it stands, Levy, Mauricio Pochettino, and every Tottenham fan can breathe a big sigh of relief.

Pochettino was once again waxing lyrical about his star man after he put in a phenomenal shift against Liverpool.

"Harry Kane is a fantastic player, he is one of the best strikers in the world," the Argentine told Sky Sports.

"It is difficult to find words to describe him. Of course, we are a team, but he is an unbelievable player, his effort without the ball, running pressing, holding up the ball, everything is fantastic."

How much is Harry Kane worth in today's market? Have your say in the comments.
