Opinion: Harry Kane could change position if Spurs bring in new striker

I am a firm believer that Harry Kane is one of the best, if not the best, centre-forward in world football right now.

I would say that the only thing separating him and being one of the greatest players in the world is a slight lack of pace, although he is still no slouch. However, if Kane had the pace of Ronaldo, he would certainly be an unstoppable force.

Watching Harry for England on Monday night, it highlighted something Spurs fans have known for a while. Not only is Kane one of the best finishers in the League, but he is also one of the most talented playmakers.

Kane grabbed a goal of his own against Bulgaria, but he also assisted three and created another one out of England’s six.

This reminded me of his similar performance against Spain in 2018, in which he dropped a little deeper to collect the ball and assisted two, while creating a third.

He reminds me very much of Wayne Rooney later in his career when he began to drop back into a number 10 and then attacking midfield role.

I could see Harry Kane being an extremely effective number 10/attacking midfielder if Spurs brought in a talented and pacey striker to run in behind.

Who knows, perhaps Troy Parrott could offer that option…
