Harry Kane is once again among the Premier League’s top performers this season – but, as usual, the Tottenham striker’s efforts look set to be in vain.
At 27 and in the prime of his career, Kane is one of the top ten highest-scoring players in Premier League history and second on Tottenham’s all-time list.
But for all his talent, the England captain has never featured in a serious title race, unless you count the 2015/16 campaign when Spurs finished 11 points behind Leicester in third.
The closest Kane has come to a trophy was the 2019 Champions League final, which Tottenham lost to Liverpool.
He’ll get another chance this season when Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, while Jose Mourinho’s side are still competing in the FA Cup and Europa League.
But once again, Kane and co. look set to fall well short in the Premier League, sitting eighth, with any hopes of a title challenge earlier this season appearing well and truly dead.
Another prolific season has Kane on track to overtake Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham’s all-time top scorer, as well as Alan Shearer’s Premier League record – but he’ll need to hang around for a while longer.
And QPR striker Charlie Austin, on-loan from West Brom, has urged Kane to consider his future and choose between personal accolades or trophies.
The Tottenham man is considered one of the best strikers around – and the biggest clubs in world football would be queuing up to sign him should he decide to leave.
“What’s he going for? If he stays at Tottenham, they’re in a final but they’ve got to improve the squad to get to the levels of Man City,” Austin told talkSPORT.
“Does he stay there, beat Jimmy Greaves’ record and then try to go for Alan Shearer’s record?
“As a player, does he want Premier League titles and trophies? Because if we’re being honest, Tottenham are falling short.
“Every player who plays in the Premier League wants to win it. I think, at Tottenham, they’re going to have to make big changes because they are short at the moment.”
