Former Bayern Munich and Germany captain Lothar Matthäus raved about the quality of Spurs ace Harry Kane when writing his regular column for popular football magazine Four Four Two, labelling the 24-year-old as the Premier League's best striker.

The England international has been in sensational form so far this season, scoring 17 goals in 18 games in all competitions for both club and country.

Kane has undoubtedly established himself as one of Europe's most feared hitmen over the past few years, with his incredible goalscoring record of 86 goals in 123 Premier League appearances highlighting his clinical nature.

Matthaus, who earned 150 caps for Germany and won the Ballon d'Or in 1990, shared how much of a fan he is of the Tottenham ace, when writing his regular column for Four Four Two, suggesting that there is only one out-and-out striker in European football who surpasses him:

"Kane guarantees you goals and he has scored so many. He works for the team, he is strong and his body language is amazing. You can see just how much he wants to score. He's crazy about it. He is so focused on the ball when it comes to him. I like it when a player has that look - he doesn't want to let that chance go."

He went on to say:

"However, Robert Lewandowski is the most complete no.9 in the world right now."

Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that Kane can keep up his blistering form, as he looks to guide his side to their first league title since 1961.

That will be no easy feat, however, with eight points currently separating themselves and league leaders Manchester City.
