Spurs ace Harry Kane dreams of breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record after bagging his 21st of the season.

Tottenham: Kane eyes record Tottenham: Kane eyes record

Kane’s double in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane on Sunday means the Tottenham striker has now equalled last season’s tally, while his total haul in the top flight now stands at 45.

He also becomes only the fifth Englishman to hit 20 goals in consecutive Premier League campaigns, joining an esteemed group that includes Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler.

Shearer remains top of the division’s all-time scoring list with 260 goals and Kane says he is inspired by the former Newcastle man’s record.

“It’s a lot of goals and I’m still a long way off but Shearer was an idol of mine growing up, to see how many goals he scored was incredible,” Kane said.

“I take it season by season. I don’t like looking too far ahead because you never know what can happen.

“But is it good to aim for? Definitely, they’re the goals you dream of.

“When you’re a younger player, you watch them scoring goals week in and week out, so to be doing that now is a dream come true.”

Kane’s 21 goals this season means he has moved two clear of Jamie Vardy and three ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.
