3. HARRY KANE (TOTTENHAM)

Although he wears the No.10 on his back, Kane is very much a traditional No.9 – a striker who comes to life in the final third and is capable of scoring a wide range of goals

Much like Belotti, Kane is enjoying a thoroughly productive campaign. After topping the Premier League chart last term, the England international is again the hottest marksman in the division this time around, having netted 19 times in 22 appearances in 2016/17.

Although he wears the No.10 on his back, Kane is very much a traditional No.9 – a striker who comes to life in the final third and is capable of scoring a wide range of goals. His 19 in the league this term have come from just 69 shots, giving him a strike rate marginally better than Belotti with a goal every 3.63 efforts – a figure which again dwarfs Ibrahimovic’s return.

Kane is more than just a poacher, though. The 23-year-old posssesses a tremendous awareness of those around him and regularly combines with Spurs’ attacking midfielders, while there would be no Premier League adaptation required either.

Kane has continually demonstrated his ability to score in the Premier League

However, any deal to take him to Old Trafford remains unlikely for now – Kane signed a new five-and-a-half-year, £100,000-per-week contract in December last year and Spurs don’t need to sell. Chairman Daniel Levy, meanwhile, is a notoriously stern negotiator.

Kane wants to win trophies, however, and should Spurs remain potless the striker will have a difficult decision on his hands. It’d take a huge big to convince Levy to sell, but even then Kane may opt to remain part of Mauricio Pochettino’s exciting project in north London.
