Harry Kane has reaffirmed his desire to win tag team trophies amid rumors linking him to a move away from Tottenham in the summer transfer window.
Kane has been a brilliant servant for Spurs since making his Premier League debut in 2012, making 331 appearances for the club and scoring 219 goals.
Despite all of these goals, Kane is yet to win a trophy with Tottenham during his long time with the Lilywhites.
After another trophy-less season in north London, rumors of a move this summer have raged.
Manchester United have been linked with a move, as have Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
It was also claimed this month that Kane will push for a move if Spurs do not qualify for the Champions League this season.
Ryan Mason’s side are currently five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Now Kane has opened up about his desire to win trophies before his career ends.
“The individual awards are great, they are fantastic accomplishments,” Kane told the Evening Standard.
“When I think back to the end of my career, I’m going to come back and take some more. The goal at the moment as a player is to earn team trophies. That much [award] it’s great, I want to win the biggest prizes there is to offer as a team.
“We don’t quite do that. It is one of those [situations], it’s bittersweet. I’d rather win team trophies and this award. It’s like that.”
SL View – Will Kane’s comments worry Tottenham?
To a certain extent, yes.
These comments suggest that Kane isn’t ready to wait much longer to fight for major honors on a regular basis.
You can’t blame him either. The Englishman is now 27 and has yet to win his first trophy.
If he did so now, he could rack up a very impressive trophy cabinet by the end of his career, and his comments suggest he knows it.
However, if Tottenham show great ambition during the summer, there is no reason not to suggest that they could be a challenge for the top honors next season.
With Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers having already been excluded from the managerial race to replace Jose Mourinho, Spurs are expected to call in someone special to convince Kane to stay.
