Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former England international and football pundit Steve Howey has explained how Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane could leave north London at the end of this season.
Kane has arguably been one of Spurs’ shining lights this season, alongside the likes of Son Heung-min and Tanguy Ndombele, with the Englishman proving pivotal over these last few campaigns for Tottenham.
Howey claims Kane could be ‘prised away’ from Spurs
The 27-year-old has also been tipped to potentially break Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record (The Athletic), and Howey believes that he could be ‘prised away’ from Spurs at the end of this season if Jose Mourinho’s side continues on this run of form.
“I wouldn’t be massively surprised if he was prised away at the end of the season if Tottenham struggle,” explained the former Newcastle United and Manchester City defender.
“It must be frustrating for him. He knows he’s at the top of his game and it just depends on what he wants out of his playing career.
“He’ll want to score goals and he’ll want to break Alan Shearer’s record but he would surely want to win things as well.
“Unless Tottenham change and Mourinho is allowed to bring in more top-quality players, I think it’s going to be another season
where they look good, but don’t actually do anything.”
Transfer Tavern take
Whether or not Kane does opt to depart remains to be seen, but he has been touted with a move away to the likes of Man City very recently (talkSPORT).
He could want to have an end to his career laden with silverware and Tottenham may well face losing him if they cannot provide that competitiveness to compete for major honours.
