The legendary former Arsenal coach has urged the England international to think carefully about his future.
Harry Kane can fulfill his ambitions at Tottenham, according to Arsene Wenger, who has suggested the Manchester United-linked striker had better stay with Spurs. Kane’s future at Tottenham has been the subject of much debate in recent months, despite having still more than three years left on the contract.

Tottenham: Mourinho blames his players
“Tottenham are in a position where they can be ambitious and maybe we shouldn’t be judging just the situation today”, the former Arsenal manager said in an interview with beIN Sports. “Tottenham were top of the league in December. There were a few times they were top of the league while I was still at Arsenal. He is the only one who can assess the situation. Such a player is always in demand by d ‘other clubs and must always assess its situation “.
“Until now he was a real top leader at Tottenham. He is one of the best leaders of the English national team. I highly respect his commitment and his quality. What I like today is that he could play essentially as a number 10 because the quality of his assists and the speed of his vision of the game, and the execution of his speed over long balls are exceptional, ”added the Frenchman.
Are there other clubs on the Kane track?
If United finally give up on a deal for Harry Kane this summer, the England international may have another option open to him at the highest level in Spain.

Tottenham’s first full season under José Mourinho has been turbulent, to say the least, with Premier League heights reached in November and ambition to hold onto that position until the end of the season being swept aside quickly, with Spurs currently out of the top 4 and already eliminated in the FA Cup and the Europa League. However, Spurs are only three points away from qualifying for the Champions League with nine games to go, and they also have a Carabao Cup final against Manchester City to play.
If Spurs can beat the Premier League leader at Wembley on April 25 and end their 13-year scarcity for a trophy, Kane could still be persuaded to stick around for at least another year. Whatever Kane’s final decision, his status as a Spurs legend has long been confirmed. He has scored 215 goals in 327 appearances for the club to date, placing him second on their all-time scoring list behind Jimmy Greaves. Kane has also won the Premier League Golden Boot twice, while becoming the third player in the competition’s history to score more than 20 goals in four consecutive seasons.
