Peter Crouch has urged Harry Kane to consider his future options very carefully.
Kane admitted in an interview with Jamie Redknapp on Instagram live back in March that he is not prepared to stay at Tottenham Hotspur for the sake of it and will consider his future in North London if he does not feel the club are progressing (Daily Mail).
The 27-year-old is yet to win a competitive trophy with Spurs, with the club last tasting success with a League Cup victory back in 2008.
Tottenham will head into the new season without Champions League football for the first time in five seasons with Kane instead having to make do with competing in the Europa League.
Crouch believes that while Kane could have his head turned by some of Europe’s elite clubs, he warned the England captain that the grass is not always greener and achieving success at Spurs would mean much more.
The former Liverpool and Spurs forward told Paddy Power: “It’s a difficult situation for Harry Kane because, at the end of the day, the club does need to match his ambition, and it’s not doing that at the moment. In an ideal situation, he’d stay there and fight for the Champions League, fight for league titles, but they’re just not on that level.
“So, yeah, listen his head could be turned – but my advice to him would be: the grass isn’t always greener. You could go somewhere, you might win a trophy, but it’d mean a hell of a lot more to win a trophy with Tottenham than somewhere else.”
