Ex-Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes, Tottenham are “not good enough” for a player of Harry Kane’s immense talents and he must quit the club if he has ambitions to win silverware. The Sun reported that the 27-year-old will be sold to a foreign club only if a minimum offer of £175million is tabled. Moreover, the same report claims Spurs will not sell the striker to a Premier League rival.
Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “I think Harry Kane has to be realistic. He’s come through the ranks at Spurs and been an unbelievable striker for the football club. But you only really get a small window to win trophies. That’s the only thing that can be levelled at him right now. You can’t knock his goals per game ratio, he’s had the Golden Boot and all these kinds of things.
“But what has he won? Can he fulfil it this season? Well, we’ll see, won’t we? They’re in a final against Man City, which is a really tough game. They’re out of the Europa League, out of the FA Cup. The only other challenge is getting a European spot in the league. That’s not good enough, not for his calibre. He would be a great addition to any club side in the world. If he came on the market tomorrow, I think we’d see the real biggest teams interested in him.”
The rumour mill began to shake after Kane told Sky Sports that he would consider his Spurs future after the European Championship in the summer. Tottenham are currently sixth in the league standings.
