“Top attributes, right, left, dropping, quality to play assists, score goals in the box, score goals arriving, so an exceptional striker.

“He has shown it in many many years. Just Alan Shearer is in front of him as the top goalscorer of all time.”

Despite his continued heroics, the England international has been left without a major trophy to show for his 19 years at Tottenham.

He was linked with Manchester United earlier in the summer, before Bayern Munich made it clear he was their main target.

Kane is thought to be enjoying life under new manager Ange Postecoglou and could yet decide to stay in north London.

Postecoglou revealed an ‘ongoing dialogue’ with Kane over his future after the forward bagged four goals against Shakhtar Donetsk in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.
