Former Tottenham striker Jurgen Klinsmann has sent a message to club chairman Daniel Levy over the future of Harry Kane.
The Tottenham Hotspur captain has been rumoured to be considering a move away from north London in the near future.
Speculation has been building over whether the England striker will actually be allowed to leave the club and indeed who his next employers could be if he does.
A number of Premier League clubs are thought to be admirers of Kane, with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all at the front of the queue heading into the summer transfer window.
Klinsmann, who had two spells with Spurs, has encouraged Levy to hold firm over the future of his star striker though and try everything he can to keep him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, he has also confirmed that he could see Kane’s motivation to depart.
Talking to Sky Sports, the German said: “I feel sympathy for both sides, especially Harry [Kane], who has been the flag of the club for so many years. He’s done so much for them.
“The market is out there for him. Teams would grab him right away and they’d probably put down a lot of money.
“I personally hope he stays at Spurs but I also can understand him. I was in that situation in 1995. I badly wanted silverware and it worked out that way.
“I went to Bayern Munch and won the UEFA Cup and German championship.
“If Harry leaves then you have a problem because maybe [Heung-Min] Son says: ‘Hang on, I might move on as well then.’
“The most important path now is [for Spurs] to sit down with Harry, discuss the situation and lay out how he can continue his career with Spurs, how the roster will look for next season to make the squad even stronger.
“The quality is there. It needs a bit of fixing up but the key figure in all this is definitely Harry Kane. You’ve got to do everything possible to keep him.”
