Former Tottenham star warns Kane’s departure could lead to Son questioning his future at the club

Harry Kane-Son-Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer.

Apparently the England international is frustrated with the lack of ambition at Tottenham, and he wants to join a club where he can win trophies regularly.

Former Tottenham winger Darren Anderton has warned the club that selling Harry Kane could lead to other key players considering their futures at the London club.

According to Anderton, Son Heung-Min will start to question his future if Harry Kane leaves this summer.

The former Tottenham star believes that if Kane goes on to win silverware with another club, players like Son might want to follow the same path as well. Every player wants to win a trophy, after all. 

Anderton said: “If Kane was to leave Tottenham, then I think Son would start to question his future. All players do. 

“If you see a team-mate go on and leave, you’re disappointed. Why wouldn’t you be? And, at that point, if you don’t do well the following season, then you’re going to ask the questions yourself. 

“Of course, you’re happy for your team-mate if he goes on and wins the Premier League somewhere or the Champions League, but there’ll be a little bit of envy in there that you want that as well. 

“You want a piece of that. And if you don’t believe that that’s going to happen at the club you’re at, then you’re going to start thinking about moving on. 

“Sonny’s a great guy, isn’t he? He loves Tottenham. I think we can all see that. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about just yet, but if the club do not get back on that path of improving and getting back into the Champions League, then your top players are going to start to question whether they want to be there.”

It will be interesting to see how Kane’s future unfolds over the next few months. Daniel Levy will not want to sell his best player, but he could be powerless to stop him from leaving if the player decides to force a move.

Furthermore, the managerial situation at Tottenham has only added to the chaos. Spurs are yet to bring in a long term replacement for Jose Mourinho.

They have held talks with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Julian Nagelsmann, Erik Ten Hag, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso so far.
