Harry Kane wants to spend his entire career at Tottenham, and he has declared the club are in “great shape” long term.
The 23-year-old forward burst onto the scene two seasons ago, scoring 21 Premier League goals in 34 appearances and pushing his way onto the England team.
He followed up his breakout campaign with 25 strikes in 2015-16, helping Mauricio Pochettino’s men to a third-place finish behind Leicester City and Arsenal in the league.
Spurs are off to a strong start in the current campaign, taking four points from two matches thus far, and Kane told Sky Sports on Friday he envisions a bright future at the club. And he hopes to be a part of it.
“I’d love to stay here,” Kane said.
“The club is in great shape at the moment and we’re going forward as a club, and that’s important. As long as there’s a vision with the club, and we’re not stale, we’re going forward as a club.
“At the moment, we’re an excited group of young players with a great manager, great training ground and a new stadium coming, too.
“I’d love to stay here for the rest of my career. We’ll just have to see what happens.”
Tottenham, who host Liverpool on Saturday, will have increased competition in the race for the Premier League title this season, but Kane declared Spurs will be in the thick of things until the end.
“We want to improve on last year, we want to get better,” Kane said. “We’re not scared of anyone, not scared of any players or managers.
“We’re confident in our ability. We’re there to be right at the top and fight for the title again.
“Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club. The gaffer doesn’t feel like we needed that. He was happy with his squad.,
“He added a couple of great signings, and we’re happy. We’ve been getting better every year, but for us it’s just about staying focused.
“There’s a lot of talk about the Uniteds, the Citys, the Chelseas, the new managers, new players — and we’re happy for people to talk about them. We’ll just do what we do each week.”
Discussing new forward signing Vincent Janssen, Kane said, “He’s been great. He’s come in and is very fit, very physical, and he’s exactly what we needed, that other option up front.
“We can play together, sometimes one of us will play and one won’t. He fits into the way we play.”
