Harry Kane is one of the most important parts of Tottenham Hotspur puzzle with his presence both on and off the pitch, He is one of our own after all.
The first name on the team sheet holds much responsibility and since the departure of Fernando Llorente last summer and young prospect Troy Parrott out on loan, Kane is the only recognised ‘out and out’ striker within the squad.
Long term injuries have dogged the England captain with every fan holding their breath every time he goes down clutching his ankle and Spurs’ biggest problem has been the lack of back up when Kane is missing (transfermarkt).
Previously Spurs have been lucky with the rest of the team chipping in with the goals from Heung-min Son, Eriksen, Dele and Llorente but the squad needs another proven striker to take the work load and pressure off in Kane’s absence. You cannot always rely on square pegs in round holes to get you out of trouble something which we saw prior to lockdown.
Spurs have been linked with Brentford forward Said Benrahma (Mirror), Josh King (talkSPORT) and Callum Wilson (Express) from recently relegated Bournemouth; Wilson is a player who would be a fantastic understudy or to play along side Harry after proving he can get goals in the premier league and arguably one of Bournemouth’s best players.
Kane has always promised that as long as the club is moving forward in the right direction he will be happy to stay at Tottenham but with the Pochettino project finished and Jose beginning his first full season in charge this will be a big turning point for the 27-year-old striker (Standard). Transfer funds at Spurs are tighter than ever and with the affects of coronavirus causing a jam packed season and shorter recovery times for all trying to keep Harry fit will be testing.
There are fewer managers with the pulling power that Mourinho has in regards to attracting players but playing under a revered trophy winner is something Kane will relish, it’s just a case of building a team around him who can match his level and play to his strengths.
The biggest test Spurs will face is keeping Harry Kane after this season and they should do so at all costs, he is a once in a generation striker and he deserves to win every trophy going because he is that good.
Frequently we catch ourselves saying ‘if only Harry Kane could pass the ball to Harry Kane’ so the quality of the squad needs improving from the link up play between the midfield and up front as well as someone who can put it on a plate for him without him having to drop deep because we all know that if you give Harry the ball and service he will always score.
