Former Tottenham and England striker Teddy Sheringham has said that the club would likely be able to keep star forward Harry Kane at the club without splashing out on a new big money contract.
The 24-year-old has been in imperious form in front of goal since breaking into the senior side at Spurs, and has netted over 20 goals in each of the last four Premier League campaigns, picking up two consecutive golden boot awards.
This season has seen him dominate defences once again, both domestically and on the European stage, having scored 35 goals in 36 games across all competitions, helping Tottenham to fight for a top four spot in the league, as well as reach the Champions League knock out stages.
His impressive displays up front have reportedly caught the eye of some potential suitors seeking a transfer move, but although Sheringham boldly states Kane could move anywhere he wants, he believes that a little bit more money and some success in terms of silverware could guarantee his future at Spurs.
He told the Daily Mail: “You probably wouldn’t have to break the bank to keep him. He is a happy man, a contented man, and the club are on the way up.
“If he was up for sale, he could go anywhere, no problem. And that is why Tottenham need to keep him.
“They need to win something this year, they need to keep him happy, pay him more money so he is on a parallel with other top players.”
Kane currently has a contract with the north London side which expires in the summer of 2022, having signed a new deal back in December 2016, and is said to be the joint highest earner at the club alongside Hugo Lloris.
