Chelsea main race to signal world-class striker
Chelsea reportedly lead the race to sign English striker Harry Kane from rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Kane, 27, has been with Spurs since joining the youth academy in 2004.
After Kane successfully climbed through the club’s youth with the help of several loan spells, he has become one of the most devastating attackers in world football.
In fact, the 27-year-old’s numbers are so impressive that after 332 senior games in all competitions, Kane has already scored 219 goals and 46 assists.
However, like football, the best in the world are often judged by the cutlery they lift, and while Kane’s numbers speak for themselves, he failed to win a single trophy while playing for Daniel Levy’s team.
Shortly before his prime and after relentless ties to the likes of Manchester United, there is growing speculation that the English captain could finally secure the train this summer.
Although linked to a move to the Red Devils for several seasons, the latest in the running saga comes from Football Insider, who claims Kane is also wanted by tough rival Chelsea.
The Blues are pioneered in securing Kane as they embark on a summer mission to sign a top-class striker.
