Jamie Carragher believes Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will still be the Premier League’s top goal-scorer in 10 years’ time.

The England international has made a brilliant start to his Premier League career at the north London club after managing to break into the first team under Tim Sherwood in 2013.

However, current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has really helped Kane to develop into a top talent during his four-season spell in charge.

The 24-year-old has finished as the Premier League’s top goal-scorer in the last two seasons as Spurs challenges both Leicester and Chelsea for the Premier League crown.

Kane netted 29 times in 31 games in the Premier League last term to finish ahead of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

The Spurs forward failed to get on the score sheet in August but has now scored 14 goals in his last nine games for club and country.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher believes Kane will be a top striker in the Premier League for the next decade.

“We are three or four years in now and I think we will be saying the same in 10 years about him being the main striker in the Premier League,” Carragher told the Daily Telegraph.

Kane will be aiming to beat Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals, although he will have to stay injury free to do so.

The Spurs star has scored 84 goals in 120 games in his blossoming Premier League career so far.
