Harry Kane has finally responded to the unusually high praise he received from Chelsea boss Antonio Conte last week.
The Italian boss hinted that he would hypothetically love to sign the Spurs star if he ever became available.
Conte had been desperately seeking a new striker this month, finally landing former Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata for a club-record £65million fee.
But even so, he was full of praise for Kane when he said: “For me, Kane, now is one of the best strikers in the world.
“If I had to buy one striker I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker.”
As you’d expect, the Golden Boot winner was flattered by Conte’s interest, but confirmed his unwavering loyalty to Spurs.
Kane said: “Obviously it’s kind words.
“But I’m focused on my team now and what my manager thinks.
“I’m out here concentrating on what I need to do, and being fit for the new season.”
Kane became the club’s highest ever earner when he penned a new long-term deal until 2022 midway through last season.
But Spurs have yet to sign anyone new this summer.
