Harry Kane should leave Tottenham this summer because the club is not good enough to fulfil his ambitions. That is the opinion of former Spurs winger David Ginola, who has slammed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for making false promises.
Kane has been in typically brilliant form this season, scoring 26 goals in 41 appearances across all competitions.
He is leading the race for the Premier League’s golden boot, with 21 goals and has also provided 13 assists for his team-mates in the top-flight.
However, despite his personal form, Spurs are enduring a poor season, sitting seventh, five points adrift of the Champions League qualification places, having been knocked out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb and lost the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City.
The Athletic reported earlier this month that Kane would be willing to push for an exit this summer if Spurs fail to finish in the top four and he recently openly admitted to his frustration in North London.
“I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that,” he told Sky Sports this week after being named as the Premier League player of the year at the London Football Awards.

Ginola believes that, at 27, the time is right for Kane to move on in order to have a chance to win the trophies he craves.
“I think unfortunately he has to,” he told talkSPORT. “Because his club haven’t provided for a player like him the sort of things he was expecting, like potentially winning trophies.
“I think he’s looking at his career now and over the last few years it has been good for him, but not really for the club.
“Even though they’ve competed in the Champions League final, I’m pretty sure he wants to play for a team that will challenge for any title in any country.”
Kane signed a six-year contract with Spurs in the summer of 2018, meaning Tottenham are in a strong position in the summer transfer window.
Spurs chairman Levy has managed to hold onto his star player by promising Kane that success is on the horizon, but Ginola says he should move somewhere trophies are almost guaranteed rather than waiting.

“Football is not about words,” he said. “Words of a chairman and words from a manager will probably make you think that ‘okay, I might consider staying at the club’.
“But time goes by and you see that a football career is very short and he can’t wait anymore for words from Daniel Levy.
“You’ve not been able to build things in the past. You tried and you didn’t. Pochettino was accused of not winning anything and went to Paris Saint-Germain and then they had Jose Mourinho.
“For him I think he wants stability in the way Barcelona and [Real] Madrid are winning trophies every year. It’s a completely different world.
“Harry Kane is looking for a club who will give him these sort of opportunities especially on the biggest stages.”
