Moussa Sissoko says Harry Kane ‘deserves to win titles’ and believes Spurs have ‘failed’ the forward after failing to win silverware.
Kane is understood to have informed the north London side of his desire to leave the club this summer in search of silverware, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all interested in signing the England captain.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a superb individual season to finish as the leading scorer and assist provider in the Premier League in 2020/21, though Spurs have regressed over the past two campaigns and finished the season in seventh.
Spurs’ absence from the Champions League for a second successive campaign and inability to compete with the Premier League’s best has now led Kane to consider his future, and teammate Sissoko admits the forward is a player who ‘deserves to win titles each season’.
“Like all players, [Kane] wants to win titles,” Sissoko told Foot Mercato. “A player of his stature deserves to win titles each season. Sadly, we have failed to do so each time for various reasons. I think that this must irk him inside.
“He did not officially say that he wanted to leave the club. Harry is one of, today, the best attackers in the world. Each year, he finishes as the top scorer in the Premier League or is among the best goalscorers in the league.
“He executed an exceptional year because he finished as top scorer and top assister in the Premier League.
“I do not know if he will leave or not, but if he ever did leave, I would wish him the best because he deserves to win titles with all that he has done. He is truly an extraordinary player.
“We would like to have him with us for as long as possible, aside from that, it is all between the president, his agent and him. I simply wish him the best.”
