Paul Merson admits he is a huge fan of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane

Harry Kane has scored 18 times in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Paul Merson has told Sky Sports that he is a huge fan of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Kane has been in wonderful form of late, with his goals helping Spurs mount a serious title challenge.

The 22-year-old has played a major part as the Lilywhites have climbed to second place in the Premier League table, and former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes that the England international has been outstanding all season.

"What can you say about Harry Kane? I'm a huge fan of his," Merson said. "He's put in some superb performances this month. He scores goals with ease and is a proper centre forward. He's been outstanding in Spurs' rise up the table."

Kane actually made a slow start, in a goalscoring sense, to the campaign, but he has found the groove now.

The powerful forward has scored with great regularity of late, and he only seems to be getting stronger as the campaign has progressed.

Although Kane has been required to play in most of Tottenham’s matches, he has shown no signs of fatigue and he has scored on 18 occasions in all competitions.

Kane currently sits in third place in the Premier League’s top scorers chart, and if he continues to hit the back of the net with such regularity, then Mauricio Pochettino’s side will certainly have a chance of lifting the title in May.
