Danny Murphy urges Harry Kane to consider Tottenham Hotspur exit

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes it is "now or never" for Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane to move to a club capable of winning silverware.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes that Harry Kane should consider leaving Tottenham Hotspur if he wants to win silverware.

The 27-year-old has developed into one of Europe's leading centre-forwards during his time at Tottenham, but he is still waiting for his maiden trophy as Jose Mourinho's side prepare to battle Manchester City in April's EFL Cup final.

Kane has been tipped to seek pastures new if Spurs' 13-year trophy drought continues, and Murphy believes it is "now or never" for the England captain to get the move to a club capable of fulfilling his silverware ambitions.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Murphy said: "It looks like to me that this summer is the last opportunity to get that big move. Clubs might become desperate and a year later they might take a risk because they've got lots of money, a club like Man City for example.

"But I think it's now or never for Harry Kane, in terms of winning trophies and competing at the top level for the next three or four years.

"A man of Harry Kane's talent wants to be winning Champions League and Premier League titles... or whatever league he's in, whether that's La Liga even, although that looks unlikely now with the finances.

"The problem he's got is with the pandemic and the effect it's had on certain clubs more than others, will they want to risk an outlay of £100 million-plus and his wages, compared to going for a player like Erling Haaland?

"He's eight years younger, you'll probably pay him less, Kane is probably more the finished article but Haaland is certainly going to score goals in any team he plays in.

"So if I'm in a recruitment team and looking at the future of my club, does Harry Kane make any team better? Yes, of course he does. But, if you're talking the long-term picture, the more sensible financial option would be to go for someone like Haaland rather than Kane.

"That's unless you're Man City, and you don't really care too much about three years down the line and you've got hundreds of millions to burn and not worry about it."

Kane bagged his 14th Premier League goal of the season against Burnley in Sunday's 4-0 triumph, and his existing deal in North London will expire in 2024.
