Gabby Agbonlahor reckons that Harry Kane is playing as if he is trapped at Tottenham.
The England captain could end this campaign as his worst since he broke into the Tottenham first team.
His no goals from four Premier League matches this season is a shocking decline from him winning the competition’s Golden Boot last season.
He asked Tottenham to sell him in the last transfer window before Euro 2020 and had interest from Manchester City.
However, Spurs stuck to their guns and kept him for at least one more campaign.
The striker is expected to remain the key man under Nuno Espirito Santo, but his start to this season has been terrible.
He has been so poor that Spurs can no longer rely on him for goals in the same way they could over the last few seasons and former Aston Villa attacker, Agbonlahor says he plays like someone who feels forced to remain at the club.
However, the Englishman backs Kane to rediscover his best form, eventually.
“Harry Kane’s is playing like a player who is trapped at the club,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“He doesn’t look like he’s happy at the club but I think he’ll find his best form.
“He will have seen all the criticism he has got on social media and in the press.
“As a player, you can see from Harry Kane, you can tell he will put it all to one side – his sulking and being trapped – and start scoring goals and getting assists sooner rather than later.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if he scores at the weekend, he always scores against Arsenal.
“I think Spurs fans are not bothered about him not scoring. It’s about showing the energy for a club that you love and he’s not showing that.”
