Tottenham ace Lucas Moura sat down for an exclusive interview with Goal, and raved about the quality of his teammate Harry Kane, suggesting that he is one of the world's best three strikers.

The 25-year-old has been quite simply sensational for Spurs over the past few years, and he has racked up an incredible 160 goals in 244 appearances in all competitions thus far.


From humble beginnings, Kane is now widely considered to be one of the most dangerous strikers on the planet, and Mauricio Pochettino should feel incredibly lucky to have him.

Moura, who joined Tottenham in January last year, is certainly a big fan of Kane, and he told Goal what makes the England international such a good striker:

"Look, I would say he is in the top three [strikers in the world]. He has so much quality, it's impressive because of his age, he’s still young. He scores a lot, has technique, a lot of power, a good sense of positioning... He’s a complete forward and a great striker."

Kane is currently out injured, and Spurs will be desperate to have him back and available for selection as soon as possible.

The 25-year-old is so vital to Tottenham, and should he return to action for their next Premier League game away at Burnley, Pochettino's side will have every chance of toppling both Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race this season.
