Harry Kane may have committed his immediate future to Tottenham after the summer-long transfer saga linking him to Manchester City, but Liverpool could well be in the running next year. That’s according to former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood, who has put pressure on Tottenham to vastly improve their league form in order to keep Kane at the club in 2022.
Daniel Levy’s refusal to drop his asking price of £150million for the 28-year-old was seemingly the catalyst for Kane’s statement last week.
City were unable to meet those demands and, instead of heading into deadline day with speculation ongoing over his future, Kane opted to end it early by announcing he would stay at the club.
That could prove pivotal for Tottenham’s plans this season as there remained little time in the window to try and bring in a striker who would come close to replacing Kane.
Now, attention will turn to the rest of the season with Spurs in need of at least getting back into the top four.

Kane will want more than that though with the intention clear that he wants to be challenging for trophies in the next stage of his career.
If Tottenham show no signs of that happening from this season then a repeat of this summer’s transfer saga could follow in a year’s time.
But Kane may have even less options in England next summer with Sherwood suggesting that City would likely choose to pursue the signature of Erling Haaland next summer.
Chelsea are also likely out of the running having signed Romelu Lukaku this year with Sherwood suggesting Liverpool could be an option.
“For me, it looks like it might be now or never,” he said on Sky Sports.
“Harry Kane, at the end of next season, I think he stays there for the whole season, even though he said that he is staying ‘for this summer’.
“Other teams, like Man City probably go for Erling Haaland now. On a £70 million buy, so that blocks the pathway. He won’t leave for leaving sake.
“He will leave because he needs to go to a club where he knows they can win.
“Now, that’s probably Liverpool in the Premier League, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea. It won’t be Chelsea now because they have signed Romelu Lukaku.
“I can see him staying there for the remainder of his career.
“That could be the only one, couldn’t it? Man United because Ronaldo isn’t going to be there forever.”
Kane made his first Premier League start of the season on Sunday as Tottenham continued their perfect start to the campaign with a 1-0 win over Watford.
