Lee Dixon speaks about Harry Kane

The former right-back says fellow Arsenal legend Ian Wright is a big fan of the Spurs hitman.

Quoted by The Star, Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has claimed that he didn't realise how often Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane takes shots on goal until Ian Wright pointed it out to him.

The 22-year-old, who has netted 25 Premier League goals this season, will win the division's Golden Boot this weekend if he holds off competition from Jamie Vardy, who sits one back on 24.

But the talismanic hitman has also managed more shots on goal than any other player in England's top flight this season with 154, 40 more than Manchester City's Sergio Aguero in second.

Dixon claims he never realised his fondness for a shot until fellow Arsenal legend Wright mentioned it, also noting that it's something which the legendary Gunner admires so much.

“Ian Wright said to me he likes him so much because he shoots. I said don’t all strikers shoot and he said not as much as Kane," Dixon said via The Star.

“It wasn’t until he said that that I realised how much he shoots.”


Indeed, Kane, for the second season running, is an absolute goalscoring machine and although Spurs fans will be disappointed by not winning the title, they can console themselves with the notion that they have the most lethal striker in English football, whose goals will perhaps go toward something more tangible than a top-four finish this time next season.
