Teddy Sheringham believes that striker Harry Kane will want to leave Tottenham if they don’t win silverware in the next 18 months.
The 23-year-old has become a crucial player for Spurs in recent years and is now recognised as one of the best forwards in the world.
He has managed to become clinical in front of goal and managed 35 goals in just 38 appearances across all competitions last season.
However, the England international is still awaiting his first piece of silverware with the north London club.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have competed for the Premier League crown in the past two seasons, but finished second and third in their titles races.
Sheringham feels that Spurs risk losing Kane in the near future if they can’t win trophies and states that the top players are desperate for success.
“I would say Tottenham have got a year, maybe a year and a half and if they’re not challenging in the second year from now then Harry will want to move,” Sheringham told talkSPORT. “They’ve got close but not close enough over the last few years and they need to get over that line,” he added.
“Pochettino’s still building and understanding the English way and he’s still moving forward, but they have to win trophies and if not then the big players will be wanting to go elsewhere.”
Kane has become a star player since graduating through the Spurs academy and benefited from a series of loan spells as a youngster.
He is now the frontline striker for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and perceived as one of the most deadly in English football.
The forward has topped the Premier League goalscoring chart in the past two seasons and is desperate to help Spurs win trophies.
Kane has made 165 appearances for the north London club and scored 99 goals in return.
