While a certain Erling Haaland might have stolen most of the Premier League’s headlines this season, the Norwegian record-breaker is not the only striking superstar who enjoyed a stellar top-flight campaign.
Notching a staggering 30 Premier League strikes for a Tottenham squad that failed to book any kind of European adventure for next season, Harry Kane once again finds himself as one of the key talking points this summer.
With just 12 months left on his current deal in north London, the England skipper certainly faces the biggest decision of his professional career.
Refusing to be drawn into any speculation surrounding his future with Spurs, Tottenham’s attacking icon has a string of European heavyweights who would all be desperate to snap up the 29-year-old.
Currently away on international duties with the Three Lions as England look to move a giant step closer to next year’s European Championships, Kane will soon have to make a decision over what the future holds.
Ahead of what looks like it could be a make-or-break summer for Tottenham’s homegrown talisman, we have taken a look at the three most likely options for Kane this summer.
Stay put in north London?
Eventually having to settle for what was a woeful eighth-place finish last month and with no European adventure on their schedule for next season, many around north London appeared to have accepted that Kane will finally be handed the chance to secure a move away from his boyhood club.
However, while Spurs’ all-time leading marksman might only have 12 months remaining on his current deal, it appears that Daniel Levy still has no intention of allowing Kane an easy escape.
With The Daily Mail reporting earlier in the week that Levy still values the 29-year-old at £105million, the Tottenham chiefs still remain hopeful that Kane will put pen to paper on an extension before the transfer window slams shut.
Nevertheless, with the 82-cap international appearing to once again be favouring a move away from north London, Levy finds himself in a hugely testing position as he stares down the prospect of losing Kane on a free next summer.
Despite many expecting Kane to be handed the chance to seek a new adventure this summer, the bookmakers still believe that the England captain will most likely be forced to see out the final 12 months of his contract.

Follow Bellingham to the Bernabeu?
With it announced earlier in the month that reigning Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema will be the latest European icon heading over to Saudi Arabia, it is no secret that Real Madrid have a new number nine at the top of their agenda this summer.
Breaking the bank this week as they announced that Jude Bellingham will be moving to the Spanish capital in a deal that looks set to be worth more than £100million, the ex-Birmingham starlet is not the only England international who could be on his way to the Bernabeu.
With Levy and the Tottenham hierarchy making it clear that they would prefer their record-breaking superstar to head abroad this summer, Los Blancos have remained a long-time admirer of Kane.
Knowing that they must bring in one of Europe’s elite to replace Benzema ahead of the 2023/24 campaign, reports across Spain have continued to suggest that the Spanish heavyweights are weighing up what would be a sensational swoop for the England skipper.
Although it is believed that Kane himself would prefer to stay put in the Premier League, history has proven that it is almost impossible for players to turn down the opportunity to represent arguably the most iconic club in world football.

A blockbuster move to Manchester?
With many around Old Trafford left underwhelmed during the January transfer window as Wout Weghorst arrived on a short-term loan switch from Burnley, Manchester United find themselves in a very similar position to Real Madrid in their bid to snatch a genuine number nine this summer.
With Erik ten Hag making it abundantly clear that he is seeking attacking reinforcements ahead of the new season, the Premier League giants have remained heavily linked with a move for Kane over the past couple of months.
However, while The Guardian might have reported earlier in the week that United have accepted defeat in their bid to snap up England’s all-time leading goalscorer, the former Ajax boss still finds his side sat as one of the more realistic destinations for Kane.
Although United might have made it publicly clear that they could not match Spurs’ valuation of the 29-year-old, it is expected that the Red Devils are going to break the bank this summer with an historic takeover still firmly on the cards.
Known to be the man at the very top of ten Hag’s summer wishlist and with Kane hopeful of remaining in England, United could still be looking to make a late blockbuster move.
