  • Antonio Conte wants Harry Kane to sign a new contract with Tottenham
  • The striker, who has started the season well, still has two years left
  • Conte described Kane as ‘world class’ and wants the club to secure its future

Antonio Conte admits now would be the perfect time for Tottenham to entice Harry Kane to sign a new contract.

The Spurs have started the season impressively with 10 points from their first four Premier League games and Kane has scored four of their nine goals.

The England captain, who is out of his current contract for less than two years, looks confident and content, far removed from this time last year when he was unhappy to hear there would be no move to Manchester City.

“My opinion is just one of a million opinions trying to force the club to sign a new contract for Harry Kane,” smiled Conte, when asked if Tottenham were working on ways to tie Kane after 2024.

“Of course I would like Harry to sign a new contract. We are talking about a world class striker and a player who is the most representative player for Tottenham right now.

“It’s very important to see him happy, fully committed to this season, fully committed to this project and what we’re doing. For me this is the most important. Then it is a decision for the player and the club to make.

‘It’s the perfect time, but you create the perfect time with a project. The player understands that there is a good process and that everyone is going in the same direction. Every player wants to see this.

“Harry is certainly happy because he’s going through situations like this. There is a vision, there is a direction, there is a unity to try to improve the team to be the team at the level of its expectations.”

Since the transfer window that dominated the summer of 2021, Kane has shown no interest in extending his contract with Tottenham.

The 29-year-old has trained his focus on the upcoming club and country campaign. He is chasing personal bests and has made no secret of his desire to win his first major trophy.

“We aim to be successful and win something,” Kane told Sky Sports after scoring twice in a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday, goals that took him to 187 in the Premier League. Only Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney have scored more in the league. He responded well to Conte’s arrival in November, but the Italian head coach has no contract before the end of this season.

“We have a fantastic manager and we have a very strong squad,” Kane said. “The fans are excited and that’s great, but there are a lot of games to play.

“We will need that team in the coming period. Until the international break we have a game every three or four days and it will be a very busy schedule. “It’s very important that the players coming in who haven’t played many games yet are ready for that opportunity.

‘We’re in a good place. We have started well, but as we know in the Premier League things can change quickly. We have to stay focused, keep working and see what we can get.”
