Harry Kane is probably the most important player for and at Tottenham Hotspur and it is no secret. The English skipper has established himself as one of the best strikers in the game, if not the best. Having said that, he does not have any silverware to show for his incredible numbers and that is something that has caused him to reconsider his future at the North London club.

The lack of silverware at Tottenham has frustrated Harry Kane and the Lillywhites failed to win their maiden Carabao Cup trophy last season when they lost the final to Manchester City by 1-0.
Towards the end of the season, numerous reports came out from the White Hart Lane expressing the 27-year-old’s desire to leave the North London club in search of silverware. Though Kane did not issue a formal transfer request, it became clear that the lack of silverware at Tottenham could well be the reason behind their star man leaving the club.
While Spurs are adamant to keep ahold of their best player, a price tag of £150 million has been slapped on the 27-year-old to ward off any pursuers.
Spurs even rejected a formal £100 million bid from the Cityzens last month and it is difficult to see Kane leave this summer unless he forces his way out of Tottenham.
Dean Jones of Eurosport understands that despite the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as the new head coach of Tottenham, Kane is ‘expected’ to reiterate his desire to leave the club.
Kane came extremely close to winning his first major trophy, with the Three Lions before they fell agonizingly short in the finals of Euro 2020 to Italy, in the penalty shoot-out.
Jones has also explained that Kane is not likely to push for a move unless City confirm their interest in the 27-year-old and assures the player that they will be making a serious bid for him.
Newly appointed Spurs’ director of football Fabio Paratici said recently that it was the ‘goal’ of Tottenham to keep Harry Kane this summer. Nuno Espirito Santo has also been told that Kane will be in his squad for the next season.
While the deal is not going to be easy for City, it will get slightly better if Kane applies pressure on Tottenham from his end. However, that is unlikely to happen and Kane is likely to stay at the White Hart Lane for the next season, at least.
