West Ham captain Mark Noble has said that Tottenham’s Harry Kane is worth in excess of £100million after seeing the striker score twice against his side.
The Spurs striker doubled his league tally for the season with a first half brace against the Hammers at the London Stadium on Sunday, helping secure a 3-2 win for the North London side.
It added to his double against Everton in the league, and takes his total tally across all competitions for the club to six this season.
Now Noble, who holds the record for most Premier League games for the Hammers, says he believes that Kane is worth more than £100million after demonstrating his natural ability to score goals.
He told the Daily Mail: “He easily has to be worth £100million-plus because he gets goals and goals in this game are hard to come by and you pay a premium for that.
“It’s not often you get a talent like Harry come through the ranks and score goals like he does. He’s always in the right place at the right time.
“They have kept him too and if he keeps on playing like he is they are going to have to be strong to keep him.”
Kane has scored 82 Premier League goals for Tottenham having broke through the youth ranks at the club, and has secured two consecutive top flight golden boot awards.
Last season saw him notch up 29 goals in the league, while he has scored over 20 in each of the last three campaigns.
He looks set to take his fine goal scoring form into Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Apoel Nicosia, and will be hoping to add to the two goals he scored against Borussia Dortmund in their last European outing.
