Star Spurs were linked with last year names Kane as his ‘ideal strike partner’

Callum Wilson has named Harry Kane as his ideal striker partner due to the Tottenham man’s ability to drop deep and pick out runs in-behind the opposition backline.

Kane has continued to bang in the goals for Spurs this season, having hit the 20 goal a season mark for the seventh campaign in a row.

However, the striker seems to have added a new string to his bow as he is also currently leading the assist charts in the Premier League.

The England captain has played a slightly deeper role than in previous seasons which has allowed him to get on the ball a lot more.

Kane’s passing ability and vision has hence come to the forefront and that is something that Wilson has clearly been impressed by.

The former Bournemouth man was rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar during last summer’s transfer window after the Cherries’ relegation from the top flight but it was Newcastle who snapped him up.

The England international has been been the Magpies best player so far this season but, based on his admission, it seems like he would love to line up alongside Harry Kane at Spurs.

When asked to name his ideal partner, Wilson told the Super 6 podcast (as relayed by HITC): “An ideal strike partner would be someone to compliment my style of play really.

“So someone who would drop in short and can see a pass and get assists.

“Someone like Harry Kane would also chip in with goals and give you competition as well. That would be the perfect scenario, I guess.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I believe we missed a massive trick by not snapping up Wilson in the summer. The 29-year-old would have offered us a lot of options as he could have played alongside Harry Kane, been used a wide-forward or even lad the line on his own if Kane needed a rest.

His performances for Newcastle this season have been quite underrated, considering how little service he gets. The former Bournemouth man could quite easily be a 15-20 goal striker for a top side even while playing a bit-part role.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yes totally agree. Callum Wilson, or Ollie Watkins would have been even better, as younger. Both English, so would have helped with our Foreign quota issue. Of course Levy didn’t want to spend the money. We did spend in other areas. So we will have the same problem again this summer, when money will be tighter. Vicinius has done ok. He has deserved more starts to show what he can do. But he isn’t worth £38m. Anybody can see that. He would be a good 3rd striker. Use in lesser competitions. If he played instead of Kane, he’s very reliant on service and would maybe get 10-15 goals. Not bad, but not £38m.
