'He's got everything' - Ian Wright raves about this Tottenham star, claims he can be a record breaker
By Matt Bullin
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has heaped praise on Tottenham striker Harry Kane and has even claimed he can beat Alan Shearer’s Premier League goal scoring record.
Wright’s comments come after Kane became the Premier League’s leading goal scorer with just one game left, after bagging himself four goals against Leicester on Thursday night.
Spurs ran out 6-1 winners at the King Power Stadium as Son Heung-min netted a brace of his own.
Kane now sits on 26 goals from his 29 league games this season and has scored 20 goals in the English top flight for the third season in a row.
The 23-year-old has earned many plaudits for his performances this campaign and his latest admirer is Wright, who has claimed he could be the one to beat Alan Shearer’s record for Premier League goals.

Speaking on BBC 5 Live, as quoted by their official Twitter account, Wright said: “I remember watching him when he was on loan…at Millwall… and on the bench at Leicester. He looks so driven, he looks so intense in being the best.
“He doesn’t hardly miss the target which I love about him. This guy is somebody that will score goals continuously. I believe given the time and if he stays at Tottenham, or goes higher, he’s the one that’s going to actually give [Alan Shearer] a proper run for his money.
“Harry Kane is the one. He’s got everything, he’s got that selfishness, he can link the play.”
'My problem with #THFC? You can't dislike the manager, the players. It's hard for me, man!'

Kane currently sits on 75 Premier League goals, so he has some way to beating Shearer’s record of 26o, but he is only 23 and barring injuries and if he continues at the same rate he could do it.
Tottenham face Hull at the KCOM Stadium in their final game of the season where the 17-time England international will look to add more goals to his tally and secure his hold on the Golden Boot.
