Alan Shearer's response when asked how much Tottenham's Harry Kane is worth

Harry Kane #10 of Tottenham Hotspur reacts in the second half against Roma during the International Champions Cup on July 25, 2017 at Red Bull Arena  in Harrison, New Jersey.

Tottenham Hotspur striker has been sensational once again this term.

BBC pundit Alan Shearer looks on before the FA Cup Second round match between Hartlepool United and Blyth Spartans at Victoria Park on December 5, 2014 in Hartlepool, England.

BBC pundit Alan Shearer raved about Harry Kane, when speaking on BBC's Match of the Day programme on Saturday December 23rd, claiming that the England international is now worth more than £180 million.

The 24-year-old has now scored 53 goals this calendar year, a tally that leaves him behind only Lionel Messi in the standings, and ahead of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Edinson Cavani.

The Tottenham man has been quite sensational since breaking onto the scene three-and-a-half years ago, and has now fully established himself as one of Europe's most feared attackers.

Kane has bagged 21 goals in 23 outings in all competitions for Spurs so far this term, and Shearer told BBC's Match of the Day how the in-form hitman is now worth in excess of £180 million:

"He is obsessed with scoring goals, the hunger to get on the ball, and put it in the back of the net. Everything about him is class. Last year I said he is worth £90 million, now he is worth more than double that."

Next up for Tottenham is a home game against Southampton on Boxing day, and Kane needs just one goal to beat Shearer's long-standing record of 36 league goals scored in a calendar year.

One thing's for sure, it would take a brave man to bet against him doing just that.
