Alan Shearer reckons Tottenham ace Harry Kane is worth as much as Gareth Bale

Has Shearer got a point or has he completely lost the plot?

With the January transfer window open and clubs starting to get linked with big players, we wondered how long it would be before Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane's name would be thrown around.

The 22-year-old has been tipped to be making a move to join his former teammate Gareth Bale at Real Madrid, as Zinedine Zidane looks to rebuild the La Liga giants, as reported by the Telegraph.

And could you blame them for wanting the England striker? Kane has already netted 11 times in the Premier League for Mauricio Pochettino's side this season, and ended his 2015 with an astonishing 27 goals in the league alone.

Although Pochettino has said he is not for sale, former Newcastle and England captain, Alan Shearer, reckons that if he was the chairman of any big club, he would be splashing the cash on him.

But just how much would he spend? Well, ahead of the FA Cup third round match with Leicester City, Shearer claimed that Kane is easily worth £80-90million!

Goodness! Is that as crazy as it sounds? Well, a report by the CIES Football Observatory, claimed that Kane's current valuation as determind by performances and contract length, is £66.9m, making him the most expensive Englishman in Europe.

Although Shearer might not be too far off the mark with how much Kane would cost, plenty of fans took to Twitter to have a right good laugh at the Geordie legend:
