Darren Bent has named Harry Kane on his all-time list of the best finishers he has ever seen, as the Tottenham man is one of six players alongside the likes of Ian Wright, Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Jermain Defoe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Brazil legend Ronaldo. 

England international Kane has been of the top marksman in the Premier League in recent years, and with the way he is going, he may break a number of big records. 

Alan Shearer's all-time Premier League record will be in his sights, as will Wayne Rooney's England record, and it could even be argued that he just needs to stay fit and stay in the Premier League in order to break those records. 

 

Nonetheless, speaking to Drive on TalkSport (16/10/2019 4:45 pm), Bent waxed-lyrical about the 'outrageous' Kane, who he thinks makes the game look 'easy'.  

"Since he stepped onto the scene, left foot, right foot, the technique," Bent told TalkSport. "The way he hits the ball. He is an absolute goalscorer. For me, he's going to break England's all-time goalscoring record. 

"Some of the goals he scores, it's outrageous. I can always think about the goal against Arsenal where he had no right to shoot from the side of the box like he did and to bend it round there He was wearing the mask. 

"Even his goal against England on Monday, he takes it on his left like it was easy like he was left-footed. For me, on that reason there, he has to be up there."

He scored for England earlier on in the week when they thrashed Bulgaria 6-0 in Sofia, as the experienced man showcased his maturity, calmness and leadership qualities as racist abuse was being hurled at his black teammates. 

Nonetheless, the Spurs academy graduate will be now preparing for a home clash against winless Watford on Saturday, who are sitting bottom of the Premier League table.
