Pochettino Happy Chelsea Want Kane
The England international has been linked with a move to the Blues this summer, but the Argentine insists he will remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future
Mauricio Pochettino is happy to see Harry Kane linked with Chelsea but insists the Tottenham striker wants to stay at the club.
The Blues are reportedly in the market for a striker, with Diego Costa struggling for form this season, and reports have suggested they will target the England international, who has scored nine goals so far this season.
But Pochettino has told Jose Mourinho to forget about signing the forward, who, along with Hugo Lloris, has ambitions to fulfil at Spurs.
“I am happy that a big club wants our player – this is because they show they are a top player with top performances,” Pochettino told reporters. “It is good when they are linked.
“But Harry, like Hugo, wants to stay here. He is one of the best players and he is very happy.
“He wants to grow up with us and try the next few years to try for the top four and win titles with Tottenham. This is his challenge.”
Kane suffered a dip in form at the start of the season, but has scored seven goals in his last four Premier League appearances, with Spurs set to face Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
