Tottenham Hotspur will “fall apart” if Daniel Levy allows Harry Kane to leave the club this summer, according to Jermaine Jenas.

Since breaking into Spurs’ first-team, Kane has consistently been their most important player and top goalscorer.

The forward has 220 goals and 46 assists for the Londoners from his 335 outings across all competitions.

Kane has adapted his game this season as he has added more assists to his game. This term he has 22 goals and 13 assists in the Premier League.

The Englishman has openly stated that he wants to win trophies. He has told Tottenham that he wants to leave this summer.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested in him. If he does leave, he is expected to cost in excess of £150m as he still has three years remaining on his contract.

Jenas has told BBC Sport that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has got “a lot of problems” to deal with:

“Levy has got to prove to Kane that what is coming in with regards to the manager, style of play and players over the next two seasons is going to be a team built to win something.

“And when I say win something, I don’t think a League Cup cuts it with Harry Kane. We are not talking that any more. We are talking a team that can challenge for the title and a team that can be in the Champions League competing in the latter stages on a regular basis.

“If he sells Harry Kane – the stock of the football club, the look of the football club, they’ve lost the England captain, they’ve got no manager, they’ve got disgruntled players – what happens then to Son Heung-Min and a core group of players that have been successful at the football club? The whole thing falls apart and who holds that together?

“So Levy has got a lot of problems on his plate. On top of that he is trying to attract a manager. To attract a top manager you want one of the best strikers in the world.”
