Tottenham are set to offer Harry Kane a lucrative new contract as they attempt to fend off interest from Manchester United and Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.
The striker signed a £35,000-per-week deal in February which doesn’t expire until 2020. However, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to keen to keep the 22-year-old at White Hart Lane and the club are willing to double his wages.
Kane burst onto the scene during the early stages of last season and finished the campaign with an impressive 31 goals from 51 appearances in all competitions.
Although he failed to score in the opening six matches of this season’s Premier League, Kane has still managed 14 goals in 27 games this campaign, proving that he is far from a ‘one-season wonder.’
The Spurs fans often chant that Kane is “one of our own,” and Kane sees his long-term future at Tottenham.
"Yeah, definitely,” Kane said when asked if he will remain in north London with Spurs.
"There are always going to be rumours flying around but I'm happy here. The club is in a good shape, we have a great future and I'm raring to go so we will see what happens.
"We have got a lot of young players raring to go who are getting better and better with each game and that is all we have got to do.
"Keep working hard on the training field, we are getting better and more experienced the more we play and I think we can only get better," he added.
Kane scored his 50th Spurs goal during his side's 2-2 draw with Leicester City in the FA Cup and BBC pundit Alan Shearer suggested that he is now worth around £80million.
His goals have helped Spurs mount a serious title challenge as the Lilywhites sit in fourth position, just six points behind league leaders Arsenal.
Manager Pochettino appears to be attempting to tie down his young, talented players before they’re undoubtedly touted by European giants in the summer. Dele Alli has been rewarded for his promising performances so far this season with a new contract on Tuesday as the club attempt to keep the spine of their squad together.
Whilst the club are aware that Kane can earn more than £70,000-per-week elsewhere, they hope this new offer will be enough to fend off any interest from potential suitors.
