Glenn Hoddle has admitted that he sees similarities between Chelsea signing Alvaro Morata and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

The Blues signed Morata in a £58m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window after missing out on Romelu Lukaku.

The 24-year-old striker won two Serie A titles during his two-season stint at Juventus before getting his hands on the La Liga crown and the Champions League title with Real Madrid last term.

Morata has already hit the ground running in the Premier League after the centre-forward scored against Burnley, Everton and Leicester City.

The Spain international’s three goals have all been headers so far despite his reputation as a technical forward capable of running the channels to create space for team-mates.

Former Chelsea manager Hoddle admitted that Morata reminds him of Tottenham’s prolific goal-scorer Kane.

“He scores every type of goal. Left foot, right foot, headers, a little bit like Harry Kane does,” Hoddle told BT Sport on Tuesday night.

“He’s got a wonderful frame you can hit him as a target. He’s no slouch and he’s got every aspect you want as a striker.

“He’s hit the road running and I just think he’s going to get better and better.”

Kane has netted two goals in four games in the Premier League so far after failing to find the net in Tottenham’s opening three games in August.

Chelsea were 6-0 winners against Qarabag in the Champions League on Tuesday night, although Morata wasn’t amongst the goals.

The Blues will host title rivals Arsenal in their next Premier League game at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
