Tottenham ace: I want to surpass Arsenal icon goal record
By Will Butcher
Harry Kane is hopeful that he will surpass Ian Wright’s Premier League goal record in the near future as he continues to bang in the goals for Tottenham.
Kane, 23, scored his third hat-trick in nine games on Sunday, as Spurs demolished Mark Hughes’ Stoke at White Hart Lane with a 4-0 win.
Posting on his Instagram story, Kane revealed that he wants to reach former Arsenal striker Wright’s Premier League goal tally of 113 strikes sooner rather than later.
England international Kane is some way away from reaching Wright’s total, which stands at 113 Premier League goals from 213 games after spells with Arsenal, Crystal Palace and West Ham.
Tottenham’s number 10, Kane, has 66 Premier League goals to his name from just 104 league appearances but does have age on his side, as he still remains in his early twenties.

This season, Kane has scored a wonderful 22 goals in 27 league and cup outings, with 17 of those strikes coming in England’s top tier.
The centre forward will be hoping to build on that number on Sunday, as Spurs play host to Ronald Koeman’s Everton at White Hart Lane.
A win for Kane and the rest of Mauricio Pochettino’s side could see the north London giants move to within seven points of league leaders Chelsea, if the Blues lose to West Ham.
