Alan Shearer says Tottenham fans will understand and forgive Harry Kane if he wanted to leave the club this summer after their 3-1 home defeat to Brentford that has left them eighth in the Premier League table.

The England forward scored a wonder goal to open the scoring for his side but as has often been the case this season, Spurs went from a position of promise to chaos in the second half and ended up losing the game deservedly.

Kane’s strike was his 28th of the season, only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland (36) has scored more despite the troubles of having to sack Antonio Conte, replacing him with his assistant Cristian Stellini and quickly realising that was the wrong move and giving it to Ryan Mason.

One-club man Kane is 29 years now and the need to win a trophy is highlighted whenever he adds to his goals, having won three Golden Boot awards, broken Wayne Rooney’s all-time Premier League goal record, and closing in on Shearer’s long-standing benchmark.

Tottenham are without a substantive head coach and a director of football while Manchester United who have been linked with Kane need just a point in their remaining two games of the season to secure Champions League football next season.

Shearer speaking on Kane’s situation on Match of the Day says he would look to move if he was in Kane’s shoes.

He said: “If it was me, personally, in his situation now - yeah, I would look at my options.

“He has been so loyal to Tottenham and so brilliant for Tottenham. I don’t think any Tottenham fan could complain if he said: ‘Look, I’ve done my time and I have got to look elsewhere.”

There have been reports that Bayern Munich are also interested in Kane whose contract at Spurs runs out in the summer of 2024 but LondonWorld sources say Kane will only consider a Premier League switch as he hunts Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League top scorer record of 260 goals. Kane is currently on 211.
