Harry Kane says he would love to spend his entire career at Tottenham after the club snubbed an approach from Napoli this week.
The England international, 23, believes that the club are moving in the right direction and all factors point towards an exciting future.
Sky journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claimed this week that Serie A heavyweights Napoli had an approach for Kane rejected by Spurs.
“I’d love to stay here. The club is in great shape at the moment, and we’re going forward as a club, and that’s important,” Kane said in an interview with Jamie Redknapp on Sky Sports.
“As long as there’s a vision with the club, and we’re not stale, we’re going forward as a club. At the moment, we’re an excited group of young players with a great manager, great training ground and a new stadium coming too.
“I’d love to stay here for the rest of my career. We’ll just have to see what happens.”
Asked if he would settle for another top-four finish this season, Kane added: “No, I wouldn’t. Like I say we want to improve on last year, we want to get better. We’re not scared of anyone, not scared of any players or managers.
“We’re confident in our ability. We’re there to be right at the top and fight for the title again.
“Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club. The gaffer doesn’t feel like we needed that. He was happy with his squad.
“He added a couple of great signings, and we’re happy. We’ve been getting better every year, but for us it’s just about staying focused.”
Kane has had two consecutive outstanding seasons for Spurs and topped the Premier League goal charts last season with 25 goals as well as finishing third in the PFA Player of the Year award behind Leicester duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.
Football Insider exclusively reported last week that Spurs were to revive talks over a new £110,000-a-week contract for the England youngster.
It was previously revealed in March that Spurs were keen to tie Kane, 23, down to a lucrative new contract that will make him the best-paid player in the club’s history.
The north Londoners are ready to offer Kane a stunning £110,000-a-week deal that would run until 2021 if, as expected, an agreement can be reached.
The club have made an attempt to support their star man by welcoming Dutch striker Vincent Janssen to the club this summer from AZ Alkmaar for £18million.
