Tottenham's Harry Kane says he wants to be among the best players in the world

The Tottenham Hotspur player has very lofty ambitions.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been speaking to the FA’s official website about his hopes for the future.

The young forward is currently on international duty with England’s under-21s for the Euro finals, where he will no doubt be hoping to continue the fine form that saw him called up in the first place.

Kane ended the domestic campaign with 31 goals for Tottenham but he cannot put his feet up and relax just yet.

At just 21, Kane has the world at his feet if he continues on his current trajectory, and that is something he is clearly considering even this early in his career.

“I want to win trophies and be one of the best players in the world,” Kane told “As any footballer growing up, you want to be the best that you can.”

The Tottenham player has a long way to go but his club manager Mauricio Pochettino will surely be pleased to hear that, even if the pressure is on to add the stars who can help Kane to that much-needed silverware.

Tottenham finished last season fifth in the Premier League, ensuring another year in the Europa League rather than among the continent’s elite in the Champions League.

With Pochettino already adding Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier to his playing staff it is a step in the right direction, but there is still a lot of work to do this summer and beyond, as there is for Kane, who will know his path to the world’s best is only just beginning…
