Tottenham Hotspur have nine Premier League matchdays to convince their star striker Harry Kane that North London is the place to continue his footballing career.

Tottenham currently sits two places off the top four, with the Spurs hoping to solidify a Champions League spot in order to hold onto the in-demand Kane.

The England international has cast further doubt over his Tottenham future, saying he will not commit to any decision regarding it until after this year’s EURO competition.

Despite the North London side underperforming so far this season the star striker has continued his incredible form, netting 17 goals and assisting 13 in only 27 appearances.

Kane’s ability to thrive in multiple systems has been on full display so far this campaign.

Playing a false-nine role earlier in the season, Harry Kane showcased his strengths in link-up play and counter-attacking football under Jose Mourinho.

However, Tottenham’s dependence on Kane was evident after the star striker suffered an ankle injury.

Spurs’ reliance on his goalscoring and playmaking ability is one of the key reasons that the retention of his signature is a priority for the club.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and Manchester City all reportedly have interest in securing the England striker’s signature, with all three clubs looking to advance themselves domestically and in Europe.

Despite remaining loyal to Tottenham, a club which he has called home for the last 12 years, the inability of the North London side to achieve silverware both domestically and in Europe will likely be a factor in Kane’s decision.

The possibility of winning trophies as well as playing in a larger market will be tempting for the Englishman.

A temptation that former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane believes will drive him away from North London, as he told Sky Sports:

"He’s under contract and Tottenham will have a lot to say about it. But if you are in his shoes this summer, l think he has to move to win the big prizes. He’s not going to do it at Tottenham.(via: Sky Sports)"

Tottenham will be relying on a late push in the Premier League in order to secure a Champions League spot for next season, with the striker no doubt keen to contest against Europe’s elite.

Their last chance for silverware this season rests with the Carabao Cup, where Tottenham will face Manchester City in the cup final next month.

Making matters worse, Manchester City appears to be very serious with their Kane links.

It is no secret that Pep Guardiola and the Cityzens are in the market for a world-class striker following the publication by Sergio Aguero on Monday and that he will be leaving the Etihad in the summer after 10 years of service.

For most of the second half Erling Haaland has been the preferred target but of recent is being said the wealthy Manchester club will have to fork out between £400k-£600k-per-week for the Norwegian’s wages.

With the transfer fee attached to the huge wage demand, the entire deal could cost the City Football Group a whopping £300 million to pull off. The transfer almost becomes none feasible for them.

This is where Harry Kane comes in why reports suggest they have turned their attention to the Spurs number 9 instead.

He is seen as smarter business with a lower wage request and definitely a lower asking price if the North Londoners are unable to make Europe’s elite tournament.
