Tottenham tipped to lose Harry Kane as transfer verdict emerges


Tottenham Hotspur are aiming high this season.

An excellent summer in the transfer market seems to have galvanised everyone at the club as they seek to right the wrongs of last term.

A sixth place finish was way below expectations, and Daniel Levy has made it quite clear that the north London side need to be playing in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho has overseen the addition of seven first team players - most notably the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius who will add real quality to the squad.

But as well as seeing the new players hit the ground running, supporters know that their existing stars need to kick on as well.

That includes Harry Kane.

The Spurs talisman has made an excellent start to the season after scoring five and creating seven in just five Premier League appearances so far.

There's little debate that Kane is among the best players in the world, and according to Darren Bent the 27-year-old owes it to himself to consider leaving Tottenham if they can't match his ambitions this season.


Speaking to talkSPORT, Bent said: “Harry Kane is working extremely hard.

"I genuine believe this is the best we’ve seen Harry Kane play, in terms of his all-round game and his impact in the game.

“We’ve seen that he can score so many different goals, we understand that, but if you look at the assists he’s getting now, the way he’s dropping into midfield, creating opportunities for other players, and even doing defensive work as well.

“At the moment he’s the complete package.

“But I do fear for Spurs a little bit. If they don’t win anything again this season and, as well as Harry Kane’s playing now, what does he do?


“Does he stay there again for the sake of it because he loves the club? Or does he go on to another level?

“Someone of that quality needs to be playing in the Champions League.

“If I was Harry Kane I’d probably give it one more year and see what happens.

“But the problem is we’ve been saying that for the last few years now, and really, if he wins the EFL Cup, is that going to be enough for him to say, ‘I like what Spurs are doing, I’m going to stay'? No!

“If the top crop, the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, come in for him, it’s not even a question. If they come in for him at the end of the season, you go.”


GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

It's a debate that seems to surface every few weeks, but I fully agree with Darren Bent's sentiments.

Valued at £108m by Transfermarkt, Harry Kane is a top level player who deserves to be playing at the highest level possible.

By playing in the Europa League with Tottenham I think that he's selling himself short.

If Spurs don't qualify for the Champions League next summer then I think that he needs to move on.

Whether it's with another club in the Premier League, or by moving to another European giant, Kane is fully capable of being a talisman for any club in the world.

At the age of 27 Kane is now in his prime and he needs to kick on if he's to win some silverware before the end of his career.
