Amidst speculation linking Harry Kane with a move away from Tottenham, John Barnes has argued that the striker can fulfil his potential at his boyhood club.

Kane drew level with Jimmy Greaves at the top of Tottenham’s goalscoring charts with his 266th strike for the club against Fulham on Monday. The 29-year-old will have a chance to create history by becoming the club’s outright top scorer in the clash against Man City next weekend.

However, his future at Tottenham looks to be in doubt, with the striker having less than 18 months left on his current contract, and with Manchester United and Bayern Munich thought to be plotting moves for him in the summer (Sky Sports).

CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs said this week that Spurs are calm about Kane’s future as the striker has made it clear to the club that his preference would be to sign a new contract (Football Transfers), and Barnes believes that would be the right decision.

When asked about the Tottenham star, the Liverpool legend told talkSPORT: “The advice I’d give is he should go where he wants to go, where he can be happy, where he wants to play, where he feels he will maximise his potential.

“If that’s Tottenham, and I probably think it is, then stay at Tottenham. But Harry has to decide for himself.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is a complete myth that only players who win lots of trophies will be remembered. In fact, there are loads of players who have won a whole host of titles, who no one remembers.

On the other hand, one-club men like Francesco Totti, Alan Shearer, Matt Le Tissier and Steven Gerrard, will always get a unique amount of respect despite not winning as many accolades.

There is no doubt that Kane will want to win silverware but winning one or two trophies with Tottenham will mean a lot more to him than winning four or five league titles at a club like Bayern.
