Harry Kane eyes Premier League goals century by end of next season

Barring something drastic happening in the last round of this season's Premier League, it seems Harry Kane is already our 2016/17 Golden Boot victor.

The Tottenham striker hit four in Spurs' 6-1 win at Leicester on Thursday to move two clear of Romelu Lukaku in the race to be this season's top scorer.

Craig Shakespeare's side were beaten 6-1 at the King Power Stadium, the joint-biggest loss by a reigning Premier League champion after Manchester United to neighbours City in 2011.

FOUR of Tottenham's six goals on the night were credited to the England worldwide as the blur of perpetual motion that is Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli tore through the Foxes defense. 'I was looking to score a couple of goals, I was looking to take the golden boot into the last game, but now I'm in the driving seat.

"I was hoping to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the next game". Carragher said on Sky Sports. You can see with the smile on his face, Lukaku won't be able to sleep tonight.

The 23-year-old would surely have scored more than 40 if he hadn't missed two chunks of this season with ankle injuries, and Pochettino spoke glowing about Kane's appetite for success.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane is "one of the best strikers in the world", and insists the club can keep their best players this summer. "We've not too much to play for now but we went out there and put on a performance like that". It's possible things can happen in the summer but we are so calm about our key players.

"We are building a very exciting project". Our aim is to win something now'.

Kane scored 25 goals last season to claim the Golden Boot, as Tottenham finished third, having netted 21 times in 2014-15.

However, with the Premier League's elite circling, Levy has reiterated he will not be ripping up the club's strict wage structure in order to fend off interest from their rivals, which has caused concern among fans.

"We said before the game that we'd secured second place and we wanted to go out there and enjoy it". I've got to go out against Hull and get four more, hopefully. They looked like scoring every time.
