Alan Shearer has urged Tottenham ace Harry Kane to try and score 30+ goals in three consecutive seasons after his landmark strike against Bournemouth.
The 23-year-old struck his 20th goal of the campaign against the Cherries on Saturday afternoon as Spurs went on to record a comfortable 4-0 win on home soil.
For the third consecutive season, Kane has struck 20 goals or more in the Premier League, joining an elite list that includes players such as Shearer and Ruud van Nistelrooy.
The former Newcastle man, who is the only player to score 30+ goals in three consecutive seasons, is the highest goalscorer in the Premier League with 260 strikes.
Now, the TV pundit has urged Kane to follow in his footsteps and go one better by adding more goals to his game.
“You know what he has to do now? He has got to go and score 30+ in three consecutive seasons,” Shearer told Match of the Day which aired on Saturday evening on BBC One.
England international Kane won the golden boot award last term after finding the back of the net on 25 occasions.
He also struck 21 goals during the 2014/15 season, which also included a brace against north London rivals Arsenal.
Now, the London-born player is on course to surpass his season goal tally for his previous campaigns as he is currently on 20 goals.
If Kane had not been injured for two crucial spells of the season then perhaps he would have had more goals in his locker.
However, with eight games of the season remaining, it won’t be a surprise to see him surpass the 25 goal mark.
