There can be no doubt that the form of Harry Kane this season has been nothing short of extraordinary.
The 27-year-old was once again on the scoresheet against Fulham, scoring a fine diving header after a great cross from Sergio Reguilon.
The goal took Spurs’ number ten to a total of eleven goals and eleven assists in the Premier League so far this season (transfermarkt).
Such numbers have propelled Kane into the race to break the twenty assist record in the English top division, as well as getting his hands on another golden boot.
But should Spurs fans feel worried about losing their talisman?
Tottenham are already said to have opened talks with the England captain over a new deal (Independent). Kane is already contracted until 2024 after becoming Spurs’ highest-paid player backing in 2018 (Guardian).
Former Tottenham player, Michael Brown, believes that the Lilywhites shouldn’t feel pressurised into contract talks, especially when they have time on their hands (Football Insider).
He stated: “There’s no rush for Spurs regarding time on a new contract.
“But, you would say, if there’s interest in the player and you feel a new contract might make that player more settled because he might be thinking he can make more money somewhere else or get a better opportunity, then you should offer him a new contract if you can afford it.
“Tottenham don’t need to sell. They’re financially sound, they’re in a great position.
“Yes, they’ve obviously had a bit of pressure with Covid, the new stadium etc, but they don’t need to sell Harry Kane when he’s on a contract like he is.
“It will just come down to if they feel like it’s the right decision from the club to give him a reward, to extend his contract a little bit longer, to make it more secure, then they could do. But there’s not a massive amount of rush when he’s staying until 2024.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
With Heung-Min Son set for a possible contract extension (Telegraph), it would be fantastic for the club to focus on Kane following a possible deal. The Englishman has already been linked with a move to Manchester City (Daily Mail). A new contract would ease any fears of Kane moving on.
