Transfer expert David Ornstein believes Harry Kane is ‘settled’ in England and is not expected to move abroad in the near future.
The Tottenham forward has enjoyed incredible individual success since breaking into the first team a decade ago. With 255 goals across 396 competitive outings, Kane is rightfully regarded as one of the world’s best goalscorers.
However, when it comes to claiming major silverware, the England international is not exactly covered in glory. Except for a 2019 Audi Cup triumph, all Kane has to show for his efforts is a runner-up Champions League medal and two League Cup final appearances.
With team successes few and far between in North London, Kane’s future has recently come under questioning. Bayern Munich were one of the clubs linked with the England captain during the summer transfer window.
The German giants are on the lookout for Robert Lewandowski’s long-term replacement. The Pole left Bavaria in the summer and has since continued his goal scoring form at Barcelona.
Harry Kane to stay at improving Tottenham?
Tottenham marked their return from the international break with a 3-1 defeat in the North London derby against Arsenal. Despite the result, it’s fair to say that Tottenham are a much improved side under Antonio Conte.
Spurs entered the weekend in third place and still boast an impressive 17-point haul from their opening eight games.
When asked about Kane’s future on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE, Ornstein said: “Where would he go?
“Well, you have seen the links to Bayern Munich. You speak to some people around the game and they say they are convinced that Harry Kane is so settled in this country that they don’t see him playing outside.”
Kane has already played under world renowned managers at the club, including Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho. Despite their reputations, neither have been able to deliver trophies.
However, unlike the duo, Conte has been backed in the transfer market and appears determined to turn their trophyless reputation around.
Kane can raise stock even further
Kane was the top goalscorer at the 2016 World Cup, and he will be looking to have a similarly successful tournament in 2022.
The England skipper is already one of the world’s best, though a successful campaign in Qatar could raise his stock even further.
The Three Lions will take on Iran in their opening game, before closing out the group with games against the United States and Wales.
Kane is just two goals away from equalling Wayne Rooney in the all-time England goalscoring charts. In fact, the Tottenham ace could break that record in Qatar.
Should the 29-year-old enjoy another stellar showing, expect clubs to step up their interest in the striker. Tottenham’s Premier League rivals would inevitably join Bayern in such race.
