Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp has urged Daniel Levy to wrap up a new deal for centre-forward Harry Kane, as well as invest more money into the squad in order to ensure that they win silverware next season.
Kane has been in sensational form for Spurs this season, scoring 38 goals in 46 appearances across all competitions in the first team.
However with Mauricio Pochettino’s men failing to win a trophy again this term, Redknapp has suggested that Levy must free up some funds to secure the futures of star players like Kane.
“It is not going to get any easier next year. Do the Tottenham hierarchy want to spend the money that will take them to the next level?” said Redknapp on the Daily Mail website.
“For the fans’ sake, I hope Spurs buy the players that will allow them to compete at the top. I want them to tie Harry Kane to a five-year deal and pay him what he’s worth.
“This is Tottenham’s best chance for many years to challenge seriously for trophies. I hope they do not squander this opportunity.”
Football Insider verdict
Tottenham cannot afford to lose Kane. He probably won’t be leaving North London any time soon and may give it another two years of chasing major silverware before getting itchy feet and moving elsewhere to ensure he doesn’t suffer a career without lifting a trophy. This Spurs team is in real danger of being the best team to never win a trophy. Pochettino has to take a lot of blame for that. He should have played his full strength team in the Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham earlier this season and should not have omitted club captain and No 1 goalkeeper Hugo Lloris from the FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester United. Moving to a new stadium will bring a lot of difficulties for Spurs. Arsenal struggled at the Emirates for a while and Pochettino’s men didn’t have the best of time in their first six or seven games at Wembley. Next season is massive for Spurs.
