The Spurs striker has already scored twice against the towering Chelsea goalkeeper this season after Kane inspired Tottenham to a 5-3 victory over the Premier League leaders at White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day.
Courtois has established himself as one of the top-flight’s best shot stoppers this season, keeping seven clean sheets in the Premier League following his return from a three-year loan at Atletico Madrid last summer.
But former Spurs captain reckons Kane, who has scored 22 goals in all competitions this season, won’t be fazed by the prospect of facing the Belgium international at Wembley.
“I think, if I was Harry, I’d like that because it’s a challenge,” King told London Evening Standard.
“As a player, as a professional you take on the challenge so it’s obviously due to confidence that a keeper like Courtois can come out and say that and it shows he has a lot of confidence in his ability.
“Knowing Harry I’m sure he’ll be looking to prove him wrong. It’s a nice situation and I think it’s a good battle to be looking forward to.”
Kane scored twice in Tottenham’s morale-boosting eight-goal thriller against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea at White Hart Lane earlier this year.
However, the Spurs striker, who signed a new long-term Tottenham deal in February, has netted six times in his last four domestic games.
