Tottenham striker Harry Kane is set to receive results of a scan on his injured ankle imminently as fears rise over it being a bombshell to the club’s hopes this season, according to a report.
The Times claim on their website that the 24-year-old will hear back today (Wednesday, 14th March) about just how serious the injury is, after coming off second best in a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic on Saturday.
Having limped out of the 4-1 win, it is now stated that the initial prognosis suggests Spurs’ star man, who has scored 35 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions, could be out of action for six weeks, with the blow similar to the layoff he suffered when he was forced to sit out 10 games across seven weeks.
Football Insider verdict
Tottenham fans will have their fingers, toes, eyes, and anything else crossed over a positive update on Kane until the official verdict is delivered, but this initial news is not looking good. They really would have wanted him firing on all cylinders between now and the end of the campaign in a bid to secure the FA Cup title as well as nailing down a top four spot, equalling Champions League qualification. However, they may well have to make do without their star man, although Heung-min Son has hit form at exactly the right time to lessen the burden of his absence.
