Kane admits he is looking forward to Conte’s first full season in charge at Spurs

Harry Kane Antonio Conte

Harry Kane has admitted he is excited about returning to Tottenham Hotspur for pre-season next month ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

As Spurs fans will remember all too well, Kane’s days in North London look numbered 12 months ago, with the striker pushing for a move to Manchester City at the time (The Athletic).

However, Tottenham held firm and managed to hold on to the 28-year-old, and following a sluggish start to the season, the striker was back to his best after Antonio Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at the helm.

Kane can now look forward to playing in the Champions League again next season, and reports over recent weeks have indicated that the England captain is loving life under Conte, and is even open to discussing a potential new contract (Evening Standard.

There were reports last week (Alfredo Pedulla) suggesting that Bayern Munich were eyeing a move for the striker, but this was quickly rubbished by the likes of Christian Falk and Florian Plettenberg.

Kane has now spoken of his excitement about the season that lies ahead, telling The Daily Mirror: “First and foremost I’m looking forward to getting away, but the plan is to get back on July 8 and head to Korea with the boys.

“I look forward to another season. I got on really well with Antonio in the time he was there and I’m looking forward to next season and what’s to come.”

However, the striker refused to discuss the chances of him penning a new contract. When asked about signing a new deal at Spurs, he responded: “I’m not getting into that today.”

There is a good chance that next season turns out to be Kane’s most productive season so far. Not only is the striker now at his peak but we have also created plenty of chances since Conte walked through the door.

The only potential issue is the fact that there is a World Cup to be played in the middle of the season. So, Kane will likely be both physically and mentally fatigued by the final few months of the campaign.
