Harry Kane’s future seems like an ongoing topic for Tottenham Hotspur. The 28-year-old was linked to a possible move in the summer to Manchester City, but a transfer didn’t happen.
This season, Kane got off to a slow start but isn’t playing up to the form that many expect from home. With the January transfer window open and the summer window six months away, manager Antonio Conte had to answer a question regarding Kane’s future.
“Harry has shown to the club a great commitment, and he shows every day a great attitude, a great behavior, and we are talking about a world-class striker and a fantastic player,” Conte said at his press conference. “If you saw the goal he scored against Leicester the assist he made for the Bergwijn goal, you understand the quality and the value of this player.”
“Apart from this, we are talking about a really good guy, an honest person, and a person who wants to work hard to improve. You can think this is normal, but sometimes you can find players with great talent but lazy but don’t want to put themselves to the service of the team. Instead, Harry has all this quality. I am really surprised in a positive way to see this characteristic of the play.
Conte views Kane as a key part of his plans, and the Italian tactician wants to have world-class strikers on his squad. At Inter Milan, he had Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martínez.
Furthermore, the 52-year-old manager might be enough to convince that Tottenham is moving in the right direction with Conte. He has Spurs fighting for a top-four spot without adding to the squad. As a result, if Conte gets the financial backing, the team could even be better for next season.
