The former midfielder also believes the young forward has now become extremely important to the club following his breakout season.
The striker enjoyed his breakout season for Mauricio Pochettino’s last season once he broke into the side from November onwards, finishing as the second highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero.
He was also the highest scoring Englishman in the division, with his performances seeing him handed his England debut, in which he promptly scored his first international goal as well.
Many are predicting next season will not be as easy for him though given he is a now a household name, but Anderton isn’t worried about second season syndrome saying he has everything in his locker.
“People will now be talking about second season syndrome and it will be more difficult. People now know what he is all about,” he wrote on Kicca.
“But I think he has everything. He can play up top as a number 9, he can play off someone, come into the hole a little bit, he can drift out wide and cut inside when needed. He also has a great strike on him and is as cool as a cucumber when he gets inside the box.”
Kane so important to Tottenham
While Spurs spent a fortune on a number of players following the sale of Gareth Bale two years ago, it is arguably their homegrown talent, which has become the most important for them.
The likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Kane were all stars last season, while Alex Pritchard is expected to have a big season after success in the Championship last season.
But for Anderton, it is Kane who is the most important, although he admits it is easy to forget just how young he is.
“Harry Kane is so important to Tottenham,” he added.
“What he did last year was just incredible. Sometimes you forget just how young he is and how inexperienced he was coming into the team.”
