Arsene Wenger believes Harry Kane does not have to leave Tottenham in order to fulfil his ambition of winning trophies.

The England captain has made it clear that he is keen to win silverware before his career finishes but Spurs will end another season empty-handed unless they beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on April 25.

Kane is already being linked with as move away this summer with Manchester United, City and Real Madrid all keen on the 27-year-old.

But Wenger feels Spurs are not far away from challenging for trophies under Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham are in a position where they can be ambitious and we should maybe not judge only today’s situation,’ Wenger told beIN Sports.

‘Tottenham was top of the league in December. There were a few times when they were top of the league when I was still at Arsenal.

‘He is the only one who can assess the situation. A player like that is always solicited by other clubs and always has to assess his situation.

‘He was until now a real top leader at Tottenham.

‘He’s a top leader in the English national team. I respect highly his commitment and his quality.

‘What I like today is he could play basically as a No.10 because the quality of his assists and the speed of his vision, and the execution of his speed on long balls is exceptional.’
