Speaking to Football Insider, pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor has tipped Spurs to keep hold of Harry Kane for the rest of his career after recent exit claims – which could be a huge boost for Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho.
Kane, who has been a key player for Spurs ever since bursting on to the scene over half a decade ago, is currently valued at around £108 million by Transfermarkt and has entered the prime of his career at 27-years-old.
Will Spurs manage to keep hold of Harry Kane?
Yes, he loves Spurs
No, Levy will sell
Big clubs have been touted to move for Kane recently, especially given Tottenham’s inability to win a trophy in recent seasons, with former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp claiming recently that his exit is a ‘possibility‘.
Agbonlahor drops Kane claim
Man United are one of the top sides that have been linked with Kane, but Agbonlahor believes a move away for the Englishman grows more and more unlikely.
Indeed, due to his age, the former Premier League striker believes top clubs will be hesitant over a move – tipping Spurs to keep hold of Kane for the rest of his career.
“He’s 27 now, he’ll soon be 28 is that the sort of age where clubs are like ‘Hmm, we’re not sure’,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“Daniel Levy is not going to let him leave on the cheap. Even though he’s an outstanding striker and England’s best striker, I don’t think clubs are going to pay the fee that Spurs will want for a 27, 28 year old.
“I feel like he will stay at Spurs for the rest of his career.
“I do actually think that Spurs will win a trophy this year. They’ve got the team there they’ve got the squad, and they’ve got the manager who knows how to do it.”
Transfer Tavern take
Kane staying at Spurs is undoubtedly a huge boost for Levy and Mourinho, with the England international proving season upon season that he is a reliable goal scorer.
Despite his market valuation, it’s debatable that Levy would be reluctant to sell, and it’s also evident supporters want Kane to stay as long as possible.
