Robinson makes 'massive' claim as 'huge' Kane news comes out of Tottenham
Tottenham will struggle to keep Harry Kane without a highly successful end to the season, according to Paul Robinson.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed Jose Mourinho’s side have a “massive” end of the season which will dictate whether the 27-year-old stays this summer.
As revealed by Football Insider, Kane has told friends he wants to quit his beloved Spurs this summer due to the club’s lack of ambition and progress.
The England captain still has three years remaining on his contract in north London, and Spurs will be desperate to keep hold of him after another impressive campaign.
Kane leads both the goal and assist leaderboards in the Premier League this season, with 19 strikes and 13 set-ups to his name in 29 appearances.
Robinson claims Spurs have a “huge” couple of months ahead of them.

“It is very important that they keep hold of him and I think a lot depends on how this season finishes,” he told Football Insider‘s Tai Kolade. “It is a massive end to the season for Spurs.
“Kane is the best striker in Europe at the moment. His goalscoring record speaks for itself.
“He is in fantastic form and if Spurs are to win a trophy, or qualify for the Champions League this season, a lot will depend on him.
“They could end up winning the League Cup and qualifying for the Champions League, which would be fantastic. But, if they get neither it will be an incredibly disappointing season.
“It is a huge, huge couple of months for Spurs and keeping Kane.”
