Tottenham striker Harry Kane is on course to become the all-time Premier League goalscorer, beating Alan Shearer’s record – that’s if he remains in England, of course.

Despite only being 26 years old, with his best years ahead of him, Kane has netted 136 times in the Premier League and is already 13th on the all-time list.

The England captain signed a new six-year contract with Spurs in 2018. Fans of the North London club will be hoping he sees out that deal and beyond.

Injuries Have Kept Kane out of Action

It has been a frustrating season for Kane on a personal level as he has missed large parts of it through injury. Spurs leading talisman tore his hamstring in an away match at Southampton on the 1st January.

Kane was expected to return to April following rehabilitation. He will now be hoping to be fully fit for Tottenham’s final couple months of the season.

Despite missing a lot of football, Kane has 11 goals for the campaign. He is just eight goals behind Jamie Vardy who tops the charts with 19.

Desire to Win Trophies

Kane recently refused to rule out moving away from the Tottenham Stadium in the future. He has expressed his desire to win trophies and he hopes that will come with Tottenham. Spurs are currently eighth in the Premier League table, 41 points behind Liverpool who are now long odds-on in the football betting to wrap up the title.

Kane and Spurs did have an exciting run-through to the Champions League final in the 2018-19 season where they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool. This proved what this team can achieve as they had excellent wins over Dortmund, Manchester City and Ajax en route to the final in Madrid.

Next season could be a big year for Tottenham as they may have to win a trophy to convince Kane that his future should be with them. Jose Mourinho normally takes the domestic cup competitions very seriously so he is likely to target one of those.

Interest from Manchester United

Manchester United are one of the major clubs in Europe which are thought to be very interested in signing Kane. For a deal to be completed, it is likely to require a world-record bid.

United have been looking for a striker for a number of years. They may see Kane as their priority in their bid to get back into the title hunt in England.

If the Manchester outfit do manage to secure Kane’s services, it will not be the first time the two clubs will have done business on one of the leading strikers in England. In 1997, United signed Teddy Sheringham from Tottenham for £3.5 million. He proved to be a key player in their treble winning side in the 1998/99 campaign.

For now, Kane will be concentrating on delivering for club and country. The next chapter in his career may well depend on how well Spurs perform on the field over the next 12 months.
