Report: Tottenham star faces race against time after three game reveal in major fitness update

Tottenham striker Harry Kane looks set to be fit for just the club’s last three league games of the season after suffering a serious injury against Bournemouth on Saturday, according to a report.

The Mirror claim on their website that the 24-year-old hotshot, who has scored 35 goals in his 39 appearances across all competitions this season, has been ruled out of action until May with ankle ligament damage, in a similar injury to the one suffered back in 2016 where he was out of action for seven weeks.

The major bombshell means that he is set to sit out the club’s next five league games, as well as England’s friendlies against Holland and Italy, as well as the FA Cup quarter final and semi final if they progress, while leaves him facing a race against time to be fit for the Three Lions’ World Cup campaign.

Football Insider verdict

This is the last news fans of Tottenham or England wanted to hear, for it not only damages Spurs’ chances of silverware but leaves the 24-year-old fighting a battle to be fully fit for England’s summer of World Cup action. With just Fernando Llorente as the other recognised centre forward option at Tottenham, it leaves Heung-min Son as the likely replacement, and supporters will be hoping he can continue his impressive form in front of goal. As for Kane, his focus will solely be on returning as soon as possible, and there is every chance he could surprise everyone with an early return.

In other Tottenham news, this big money revelation proves that Tottenham have secured the signing of the season.
