Paul Merson believes that Harry Kane needs to seriously think about his future at Tottenham and feels moving elsewhere to try win silverware could be a wise solution.
The 26-year-old is regarded as one of the elite centre-forwards in the world, but is part of a Spurs team that have gone backwards at the start of the season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team are five points adrift of the top four right now and their recent form suggests they could have a real fight on to secure a Champions League spot for next season.
The North London club have also been knocked out of the Carabao Cup already and this campaign’s Champions League group stages have seen them lose 7-2 to Bayern Munich.
Kane has netted seven times in 11 games across all competitions so far this season, but Spurs look a team short of ideas and also in need of a ser
Merson has suggested England captain Kane looks at his own situation at the end of the season and that he finds himself in an award dilemma.
“If you are someone like Harry Kane, you’ve got to be sitting down at the end of the season and thinking: ‘What am I going to do? Am I going to stay here and win absolutely nothing? Or do I go on and try and win something in my career?” Merson told Sky Sports.
“I’m not having a dig at Tottenham, but you play to win in your career. Winning is the reason you play the game.
Spurs have had such a talented group of individuals during the last few years that have gone so close to winning silverware, but haven’t got over the line and it looks like some have now lost motivation.
Pochettino needs to bring together a fresh Spurs team that can go again and there is no reason why Kane shouldn’t be apart of that.
He’s netted 171 goals in 264 senior games for Spurs and after coming through the club’s academy it would surely be a big decision to exit, but it depends on his own personal ambitions.
