Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku are in the midst of a battle to win this season's golden boot, with the Tottenham ace trying to close in on the Everton striker.

Lukaku is on 24 goals and Kane 20, despite the Spurs man having missed several games through injury.

It is a personal duel which could be repeated for several seasons, but there is only one of them who is currently competing for trophies.

Tottenham's Harry Kane is hoping to lead his side to the Premier League title, and will be competing at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend.

Lukaku will be doing neither, while the team strongly linked with signing him, Chelsea, stand in Kane's path.

Lukaku signed for Chelsea once already, before being discarded by Jose Mourinho and signing with Everton.

The Telegraph report he is keen to rejoin the Blues where he feels he has unfinished business, although Chelsea may have to get close to Everton's £100 million asking price.

The prospect of battling it out with Kane for medals as well as individual honours has to appeal to the Belgian.

He will be looking at Kane's personal achievements and seeing the rewards he is set to land himself, and asking why he is not in a position to do so.

Pundit Jamie Redknapp told Daily Mail this week that he predicts the duo will have a rivalry for years to come.

If Lukaku really wants to have an edge on Kane, then a move to Chelsea to replace Diego Costa is a logical next step.
