Harry Kane’s private desire to quit Tottenham this summer as Spurs name price

Harry Kane is privately open to leaving Tottenham in the summer after growing frustrated with their lack of major silverware, according to reports.

The England captain is enjoying another superb individual season for Spurs, scoring 26 goals in 39 appearances so far.

Yet his solid goalscoring return is likely to count for very little once again, as Jose Mourinho’s men are facing an uphill battle to even finish in a Europa League qualifying spot this season.

Spurs currently find themselves six points adrift of the top four down in eighth, although they do have a game-in-hand to play against Aston Villa on Sunday night.

And the north London club could actually clinch their first trophy in 13 years next month, with a pivotal Carabao Cup final against Manchester City to come at Wembley.

Nevertheless, a player of Kane’s calibre should be setting his sights on the two top prizes in European club football: the Premier League and Champions League.

Spurs appear highly unlikely to win either of those competitions in the near future, and The Athletic’s David Ornstein claims Kane is ready to leave this summer in search of major silverware.

It is believed the 27-year-old is prepared to call time on his 17-year association with Spurs, whom he joined at the age of 11.

  • While he is said to remain committed to the club for now, Kane is determined to win trophies on a more regular basis and believes moving elsewhere could help him do just that.

    Man City are believed to be weighing up a potential move for the striker, while Man Utd have long been linked with him.

    However, with three years remaining on his contract Spurs chief Daniel Levy will be demanding a hefty price.

    It will reportedly take around £120million to even tempt Levy into selling his star man, who has scored 214 goals in 326 appearances for his club.

    He is also not keen on the idea of letting Kane join one of their Premier League rivals, which could allow the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona to beat City and United to his signature.
