Former Spurs midfielder explains problem Kane will face if he wants to leave Spurs

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has had to deal with more than his share of critics right from the start of his career.

It is unbelievable to think that even after 5 extremely successful years for club and country, there are still those that doubt if the England captain is truly world-class.

In fact, just before the international break, there was some talk about Kane’s lack of form this season even though he had scored 3 goals in 4 games for Tottenham already.

The 26-year-old has yet again managed to shut his critics up by netting four goals in the games against Bulgaria and Kosovo, thus taking his overall tally for the season to 7 in 5 games.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara is in no doubt that Kane is now the best number 9 in world football.

Speaking to talkSPORT (5:50 pm, September 8, 2019), O’Hara said, “For me, he is the best number nine in the world, I genuinely believe that. He has got everything, he gives you everything as a player.

“He scores goals, he sets up and he works hard for the team. He is amazing at penalties, you name me a better number nine in the world, I don’t think there is one.”

However, the 32-year-old insisted that the striker is never likely to get a move away from Spurs even if he wanted it as no one will likely be able to afford the Spurs star.

O’Hara added, “The problem he will have if he ever wants to leave Spurs – and I don’t think he does – but if it came to that point, I think he is worth too much money and I don’t think anyone would be able to afford him.

“He is worth £200m, he is a £200m player. You name a team that can afford that in the next two or three years, I just don’t think there is one. And I don’t think Tottenham would let him go.”

I think if there is indeed concrete interest in Kane, then Daniel Levy will likely demand even more than £200 million as that’s why valuable he is for the Lilywhites. However, it is clear that Kane prefers to win trophies with Spurs rather than elsewhere. Let’s hope he stays for the long haul at the club and achieves what he intends to.
