Harry Kane’s future remains a source of intrigue ahead of the summer transfer window and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov assessed his potential options.

Reports claim Kane will push to leave Spurs if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League – a distinct possibility given they are six points behind fourth-placed West Ham with only seven Premier League games remaining.

Berbatov, who left Spurs to join Manchester United in 2008, is convinced the 27-year-old will stay in England regardless of whether he stays or goes.

And he ran the rule over his potential Premier League destinations, should he decide to move on.

‘If he moves, is it because he is looking for trophies,’ Berbatov told Betfair. ’People are connecting him with United but they haven’t won the Premier League for eight years. He needs to go somewhere that will see him win trophies regularly.

‘What happens if he goes to a team and doesn’t win anything again? Then he will think, why did I change my environment if I’m not winning anything again?

‘I think he will stay in England, so where does he go? Man City have a striking option with Jesus. At United, Kane could fit in because they don’t have a typical centre-forward who is his age. Edinson Cavani is in the latter stages of his career.

‘Liverpool have lots of talent up front and Arsenal is simply a no.

‘He’s been linked with Chelsea, but will that be suitable for Spurs, selling to another London rival? There are lots of question marks, so he needs to read the game carefully and make the right decision.

‘The easiest decision is to stay at Spurs, he is a club legend and can break every record he wants there. I don’t see Kane moving abroad, he is an England legend and everyone respects him and I think he will stay in this country.

‘If Kane called me I would tell him he has to make the right choice, decide on his personal ambitions and motivations. If he leaves, he will let some people down. It is his decision and it is going to be a difficult one.’
