Former striker believes key players could leave Spurs unless things change

Several of Spurs’ stars have started the season in poor form but one of the few players who has arguably still maintained a high level of performance is Harry Kane.

Spurs’ talisman has continued banging in the goals for club and country this campaign but there are problems at the other end of the pitch that seem to be hampering Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Former Leeds United forward Noel Whelan has lavished praised on the England captain’s all-round game.

Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan said, “In my opinion, he is your overall complete striker, he has everything you would want for a striker.

“He has pace, intelligence, he can score left-foot, right-foot, inside the box, outside the box, he can score headers as well and he can be utilised in the No.10 role as well.”

The former Leeds man also warned Spurs that they could lose can Kane if they don’t start winning silverware.

The striker is yet to win a trophy during his time at the club despite coming close to winning the Premier League as well as the Champions League.

Referring to Roy Keane demanding that Manchester United sign the Spurs No.10, he said that the striker will have no shortage of takers if he does decide he wants to leave owing to his unique skill set.

Whelan added, “The kid is just brilliant and that’s why Tottenham need to be wary as if they don’t produce this season or start winning some sort of silverware, them sort of players will be going.

“They may have just built a new stadium, Harry Kane is wanted by a lot of teams, it might not come out publicly, but Roy Keane said it ‘go get Kane’, he said it on Sky and he’s not joking.

“There are not many centre-forwards out there like Harry Kane, that can do what he can do.”

If Tottenham fail to finish in the top four, then Kane might well ask for a move away from the club but meeting Daniel Levy’s evaluation of the 26-year-old is quite another matter altogether. Kane isn’t the type of player to force a move through and given that he is on a long term contract, it is going to take a world-record fee if anybody wishes to sing him in the next two or three transfer windows.
