It is believed Kane transfer could happen if the club doesn’t challenge for big trophies.

German legend Jurgen Klinsmann doesn't think the England captain Kane needs to seal a move away from Spurs in order to win trophies.

Klinsmann, who loved playing for the north London club, had to seek pastures new in 1995 because he didn't feel the Lilywhites were going to match his ambitions of winning silverware at the time, though, he returned to the club on loan two years later.

While speaking to talkSPORT on Thursday morning, the former Bayern Munich hero said Kane doesn't have to follow his path, adding that Tottenham are in good hands under Mourinho.

“He can achieve anything he puts his mind to,” Klinsmann, who played for Spurs in 1994-95 and 1997-98 said.

“He’s so, so talented, exceptional and he’s now into a stage of his career where he is far more mature. He’s not the young lad anymore, even if you think of him as a young player.

“Watching him from a distance, you wish him now titles. When you play a professional career, and you get the opportunity to play in a top-five team in any country in the world, then it’s about winning titles.

“And so, I keep all my fingers crossed for Spurs and for him that he can collect trophies – that’s what it is all about at the end of the day.

“That’s why I left in ’95. Even though I loved it at White Hart Lane, I had to leave for Bayern Munich because I said, ‘well I’m running out of time. I’m 31 years old and I need to win a couple more trophies’.

“But he has that chance with Spurs, he has a fantastic coach, he has a fantastic team and we all keep our fingers crossed that it happens sooner rather than later.”

Klinsmann added: “Jose is an absolutely exceptional coach. Obviously he has his philosophy, his way of doing things.

“With his experience and knowledge, he has an amazing humour as well, I just hope that things will fall into place and they get the success that they deserve.”

Kane, 27, continues to be linked with a move away from Spurs after he revealed in March that he will not remain at the club just for the sake of it.

The England frontman has scored 197 goals in 343 appearances for Tottenham so far.
