Harry Kane established himself as a leader of Tottenham after taking the captain’s armband due to Lloris’ injury in Tottenham’s loss to Brighton.

Tottenham bounced back after a horrific run of form with a 5-0 win against Red Star Belgrade last night in the Champions League.

The hero of the night was Harry Kane, who bagged in two goals to revive his team after a crisis in results recently.

As a result, the praise is up for him again. Clive Allen spoke to talkSPORT, praising Harry Kane as the best striker in the world.

“For me, he is the best number nine in the world at the moment,” Allen told talkSport’s Sports Breakfast.

“What you see in Harry Kane, and it was certainly evident last night, is that he’s an incredible goalscorer.

“But his game now, his vision, his execution of pass, the way he links up play…”

Wondering about his market value, Allen didn’t try to keep the number low, adding:

“What’s he worth? £200million? He’s got to be, minimum.”

Ray Parlour weighed in on the discussion, giving his point of view on the matter:

“Harry’s all-round game is improving all the time.

“We know he’s a goalscorer but his link-up play and awareness – I watched that the other night for England, he was their best player.”

However, Parlour touched upon a sensitive subject for the Spurs fans, which is Kane potentially leaving the club.

When asked about this, Parlour pointed out the main candidates.

“Tottenham won’t be letting Harry Kane go.

“They’ve just signed him on a massive contract, and a long one too.

“He is Tottenham Hotspur. If they let him go there are real problems at the club. I’m sure he’ll be a Tottenham for many years to come.

“And if he does leave, it won’t be for another English club. It’ll be to Barcelona or Real Madrid, for me.”
