Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane outsmarting his previous tally of 25 goals, scored 26 this season, and strengthened himself as a frontrunner for Premier League Golden Boot award for second consecutive season. England’s international bags four goals in Friday night fixture against Leicester to see off Foxes 6-1.
It was complete domination by the Spurs at King Power Stadium, and Kane was at the centre of attraction. Spurs’ striker has an injury-laden season but he still manages to better his last season 25-goal record with a four-goal haul against Leicester.

Everton’s Romelu Lukaku sits at second with 24 goals, but Kane is ahead in race with his two-goal cushion over the Belgian striker. It’s disheartening to finish as Premier League top goal scorer second season in a row, and still your team fails to grab the title.
Last season, Spurs end up finishing third on points table and this season they can’t see themselves ahead of runner-up position. It hurts your feeling to stay with a club, which doesn’t give you much successes despite your own brilliant efforts.
It won’t surprise us if Kane leaves Tottenham Hotspur next season, and joins Premier League hot favourites. Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, or Liverpool would love to add him as their front man, and he is free to join any of them.
Although, Kane has signed a new contract with the Spurs which tie him with the club for 2022, but lack of successes may force him to leave the club. If you are a top player, you want to win titles with your club and it won’t be different in Spurs’ striker case.
Harry Kane is at his peak as he scored his fourth hat-trick of the campaign. Spurs have lost two back-to-back opportunity to finish as Premier League champions, and now the frustration may rise. It will force him to join the Big-four who are ready to spend heavy on him in summer transfer window.
We don’t know where he’ll land up, but definitely he’ll give a thought to it. He’ll cost around £80 million, but Premier League consecutive Golden Boot winner won’t be an expensive buy for Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester City, who have targeted him in past.
