Harry Kane should “stay at Spurs” and ignore speculation linking him with a record-breaking move to Manchester United, says David Ginola.
The Tottenham striker is once again reported to figure on the transfer radar at Old Trafford, with a £100 million deal being mooted.
Kane has, however, established himself as one of world football’s top frontmen in north London, breaking the 20-goal barrier in each of the last three seasons.
He has landed back-to-back Golden Boots to help spark Premier League title challenges at Spurs and has been urged to stay where he is and finish that job.
Ginola told talkSPORT amid mounting transfer talk: “Harry Kane should stay at Spurs.
“Spurs need Harry Kane to stay if they are to win the Premier League next season.
“That’s very important. Tottenham had a great season and finished runners-up last year.
“They need to keep their best assets if they want to win anything in the next few years, and Harry Kane, along with the likes of Dele Alli, is one of their best assets.”
It is being suggested that £100m would not be enough for United to land Kane, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy slapping a £200m price tag on his star striker.
Ginola believes such a valuation is fair in the current market, with transfer fees soaring as more top talents emerge.
He added: “If [Romelu] Lukaku would cost around £100m, I think it would be similar for Kane, in the same region of money.
“Some years ago we were talking about player value – remember when Gareth Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid for £90-odd million, and that was massive. But now you have a few players worth this kind of money.
“When you think about strikers who can regularly score 20-25 league goals per season, you need to put the money on the table.”
