Harry Kane has stunned the Premier League in a breakthrough campaign for Tottenham Hotspur, and his goalkeeper teammate Hugo Lloris has hailed the development of the striker.
The Spurs forward’s progress this season echoes that of former White Hart Lane star Gareth Bale, who after a difficult start, saw his performances earn himself a world-class reputation – becoming the most expensive transfer ever after sealing an £85.3m to Spanish giants Real Madrid (via BBC Sport).
While Kane’s career is certainly in its early days, the future is bright – having scored 29 club goals this term so far, even netting on his senior international debut for England too – leading to Lloris describing the 21-year-old as already being the ‘complete player’.
Lloris told The Sun: “Harry has a very strong personality, very calm.”
“He’s taken on another dimension physically, where he’s become a running machine, defending and attacking.
“He’s a complete player now.”
Having not started on Friday night in England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania, Roy Hodgson could hand Kane his first senior start for the friendly with Italy on Tuesday night.
Despite his outstanding progression, the young forward is still likely to play for the England Under-21s at this summer’s European Championships (via the Guardian).
