In Harry Kane, both Tottenham Hotspur and England boast one of the best strikers currently playing professional football.
The 25-year-old has firmly established himself as one of Europe's premier marksmen over the past few years, and has already racked up 150 goals in 229 appearances for Spurs.
At international level, Kane received some criticism for failing to score from open play in the knockout stages of the World Cup, despite helping the Three Lions to the semi-finals and winning the Golden Boot along the way.
But all is good between Kane and the England faithful once again after his two assists in the 3-2 win over Spain and the winner against Croatia in the Nations League, so he can rest easy in that respect.
Back to Spurs, however, there is one constant nagging worry which has resurfaced once again the form of speculation linking the Premier League hotshot to Real Madrid.
Reports claiming that Los Blancos are set to make a record bid for the striker have been knocking about for more than a year now and, as long as his stock remains high, they will probably not go away easily.
The latest speculation comes as Real are having a season to forget, sitting a lowly sixth in the La Liga table - albeit just four points behind leaders Barcelona - after Julen Lopetegui's ill-fated tenure at the Bernabeu.
The report declares Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi as Real's preferred option, the Argentine boasting a superb 117 goals in 195 games for the Nerazzurri but potentially open to a switch given his club's lack of silverware in recent years.
However, Kane is still believed to be very much still on Real's radar and, with president Florentino Perez having precedent in pulling off transfer coups and potentially eager to deliver a signal of intent following their poor season so far, there remains scope for worry.
