Tottenham ace Harry Kane has revealed that he has always thought about becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in the Premier League.
Former Newcastle forward Alan Shearer currently holds that record with 260 goals to his name and the Match of the Day pundit believes Kane will break his feat.
Spurs’ star man is currently on the sidelines with an ankle injury as he acknowledged Shearer’s comments and admitted that he may even need some luck to break his record.
At this moment in time, the 23-year-old has scored 68 goals in 108 matches and is more than certain to break the 100 goal barrier.
This was Kane’s verdict when talking about the praise from Shearer and if he can break his record.
“It’s always there as a thought and I think every Premier League striker would love to be the all-time top goal scorer,” Kane told EA Sports, as quoted by the Evening Stanard.
“But there is still a long way to go and lot of hard work to be done in that time, maybe even a bit of luck as well with avoiding injuries. Hopefully, I can stay fit and strong.
“You never know, though. Shearer’s number of goals is unbelievable and will be very hard to beat but I’ve just got to keep going, season by season and we’ll see how I’m getting on in a few years.”
During his career, Shearer played in a number of attacking teams, including the Blackburn side that won the PL title in 1995.
Furthermore, Kane is also in that boat playing for a club that finished in the top four last term and could repeat that feat against this season.
However, at this moment in time, he is on the sidelines with an injury as no date has been given on when he will return to action.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who sit in second in the Premier League table, are still fighting for Champions League football as they are also hopeful of winning the FA Cup in May.
They host London rivals and current league leaders Chelsea at Wembley in the semi-final with the winner set to play either Manchester City or Arsenal.
