Tottenham have an astonishing history. Throughout the years’ multiple players come and go but only a few players cemented their names in the history books of the club. Legendary striker Robbie Keane and current club captain Harry Kane are among those players. But who do you prefer Kane of Keane? Let’s compare the two centre-forward based on stats, according to Transfermarkt.

Keane spent two separate spells at the club. Firstly, he joined Spurs in 2002, from Leeds United, for a £9.45m fee. In 2008 he left the club for Liverpool, for a fee of £21.60m. However, after a half-season at Anfield, he came back to Spurs for a £15.03m fee. Harry Kane, meanwhile, comes from the youth ranks of the club.

What about appearances and goals? Keane made 306 appearances for the club contributing 122 goals and 24 assists. In the list of the club’s top scorers, Keane is 11th.

Kane, meanwhile, who currently plays for the club, has made 278 senior appearances for the club, has scored 181 goals and has created 30 assists. The England international is currently the third-highest top scorer of the club and given the fact that he still has many years ahead of him, he could break the records of Jimmy Greaves and Bobby Smith.

Tottenham have always struggled to win trophies, therefore, the two players don’t have a rich trophy cabinet. The only trophy Keane won with Tottenham is English League Cup. Kane, meanwhile, has only two individual trophies with the club as he finished two-consecutive Premier League season’s as a top-goalscorer. The England international also helped his side a route to the Champions League final in 2018/19 season.

Keane’s highest market value was in 2007, £21.60m. Kane’s highest market value was £135.00m in 2018.
