Report: Conte has told Tottenham star to lose weight, wants similar levels to Royal

London World claim that Antonio Conte has told Harry Kane that he needs to lose weight – and wants the Tottenham Hotspur striker to have body fat levels closer to that of Emerson Royal.

Kane, 28, failed to score against Brentford on Thursday night and has just one Premier League goal all season. While he does have eight goals in 19 this season, he is far below last season’s form.

Some have suggested that Kane is suffering a hangover from his failed move to Manchester City in the summer. Others have said that Kane is looking sluggish, during the first third of the 21-22 campaign.

Now, LW report that Conte has informed Kane he needs to lose weight. Banning ketchup, fizzy drinks and other high-calorie foods, Conte wants Kane to have body fat levels similar to that of Royal.

Kane is said to be delighted with the appointment of Conte, and the ambition the club has shown to get the ex-Chelsea gaffer to the club. Whether he stays because of it, remains to be seen.

Conte to Kane: Could weight loss help Tottenham striker rediscover touch?

Without a doubt. Not just because losing that little bit of weight will give Kane an extra yard of speed, but because it will instill pressure and keep the standards of the Spurs striker high.

What Spurs also need to do, in the January window, is bring in genuine competition for Kane. A player that can score goals if Kane starts to drop off – and that will in turn, get the best out of Kane.
