Ex-Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Harry Kane is the best striker in the world on Twitter.
When he was asked by the BT Sport Twitter feed who he thought was the greatest forward on the planet, Ferdinand responded with ‘Morning @HKane’ which was also retweeted by former Spurs man Graham Roberts.

The 24-year-old has been in sensational form again this season for the Lillywhites and bagged his 33rd goal of the campaign against Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night to illustrate he is not just a flat-track bully.
However, that would be discounting some of the great forwards.
Lionel Messi consistently bangs in the goals for Barcelona with whom he has 30 goals in 40 games in all competition, Mo Salah meanwhile has 31 in 38, and Sergio Aguero a whopping 29 from 33 matches.
In France, Neymar should not be forgotten for the 26 goals he has registered in 33 outings.
However, as an all-out goalscorer, it would be difficult to look past the Spurs forward.
Kane has now notched up 37 goals in 38 games which statistically speaking makes him the most prolific striker around.
And that’s not forgetting that the bulk of his goals are scored in the Premier League which is widely considered as the toughest league in the world.
Kane can find the back of the net with his head, left foot or right foot – it does not seem to make a difference.
