Arsenal fans will be hoping that the striker who has scored more Premier League goals than any other in 2015 has an off day this weekend. That striker is Harry Kane and he will be leading the line for Tottenham against the Gunners in the latest episode in the long running rivalry that is the north London derby.
But while the Spurs fans sing about him being one of their own, there are those awkward photos of the young Kane in an Arsenal shirt celebrating us winning the title and he was also part of the youth set up with Arsenal when he was very young.
This has led to some Arsenal fans hoping that a rare transfer between the local rivals might be on the cards, but those hopes were shot down this week by Arsene Wenger himself. The Frenchman was asked about Kane and while he admitting to being impressed by him, an Evening Standard report quotes the prof as stating that he would not even consider going for the transfer.
Wenger said, “I think he is a very interesting and very strong striker. He has top qualities and I think he will make a great career. Once a player is at Spurs you do not even consider him anymore to be on your radar because you do not historically have many transfers from one club to the other.”
It is not unheard of though, but then there is the added factor of Daniel Levy and his stubborn and over the top demands on any club that dares to want one of his players. So should we just forget about signing Kane and concentrate on stopping him scoring?
