Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham reckons Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is the best striker in the world at present.
The 22-year-old has expressed his excitement about training alongside the Spurs man having earned his first England call-up.
Abraham – who actually has more Premier League goals than his compatriot so far this term – is hoping to learn a lot from the 26-year-old during his time on international duty, and paid Kane the ultimate compliment.
He told the Evening Standard: “For me, he’s the greatest striker in the world. I would put him up there. I was talking to [Chelsea and England midfielder] Ross Barkley the other day and said I’ve never seen a finisher like him.
“When you look at Harry Kane, if he gets a chance in the box, nine times out of 10, it’s a goal. So I’ll go there learn off him and hopefully be like him.”
The Three Lions captain is set to lead the line against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, and Abraham will hope to feature at some point for his debut.
If Kane isn’t Europe’s best marksman, then he is certainly up there along with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Luis Suarez.
The superstar is undoubtedly world-class, and his record of 171 goals in 263 appearances for Spurs is simply brilliant.
Not only does Kane do his primary job better than most others, but his all-round game has vastly improved down the years, making him the perfect inspiration for Abraham to look up to.
