Legendary Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reckons Harry Kane will give Spurs one “last chance” before leaving the club on a free transfer in a year.

Kane has continued his incredible goalscoring in recent seasons despite the England international having no trophies to show for his work.

The 29-year-old is both England and Tottenham’s all-time highest goalscorer and is currently the second-highest Premier League all-time goalscorer as he chases down Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals.

Kane flirted with interest from Manchester City two years ago before eventually staying in north London but, with his contract coming to an end in just over a year, there is speculation over whether he will now leave Spurs to win trophies.

And Wenger thinks there is a good chance that his agent will be trying to convince him to leave on a free in a year and give Tottenham one last year.

Wenger said on beIN Sports: “If you are his agent, Harry Kane has one year to go, in one year he is completely free, what do you tell him?

“Give your club a last chance and then you go.

“It’s not about money, but, in the end, it’s always about money. He will not go for less than £80million. You don’t find strikers of that quality.”

This week, Kane said in an interview that Spurs players “need to discuss standards around the team and the training ground” as they’ve dropped off since Mauricio Pochettino’s time a the club.

Reacting to the interview, Wenger said: “Translated it means that not everybody gives the maximum to perform during training to be good enough in the game.

“Is it down the character of the players or is it down to the whole atmosphere inside the training ground or the coaches? I don’t know.

“You need to live every day with players to know what’s really going on, and what works and what doesn’t work.

“You have to create a culture inside the club that allows the players to perform.

“You need clear rules for everybody to see what you tolerate and what you don’t tolerate. When you talk about values, most of the time it is [about] what is not tolerated.

“Players like Harry Kane have high standards. He is now frustrated because for years the team looked on the way up. Since two or three years they look to have failed again.”
