Former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has urged Harry Kane and Dele Alli to stay put and insists that the duo do not need to leave the Premier League club in order to win trophies.
The 50-year-old prolific goal-scorer left White Hart Lane in 1997 in pursuit of silverware and went on to win the Treble with the Red Devils.
However, Sheringham believes Spurs now possess the ability to compete as a top team and the likes of Kane and Alli will not need to leave the club to fulfil their trophy ambitions.
The duo has reportedly attracted attention from some of Europe’s biggest clubs and it is believed United are interested in the 23-year-old striker, who is currently the top goal-scorer in the Premier League this season.
Sheringham contends that a move to Old Trafford for the talented forward will not be necessary and exciting times are ahead for the North London club.
“Tottenham wasn’t a stepping stone for me,” The Sun quotes the legendary player as saying.
“I wanted to get to Tottenham and have what Harry Kane has got now. This has to be the most exciting time at Spurs since Terry Venables. There’s no need for Harry to go anywhere else.
“The way the club is going, it could be the biggest in London.
“Why would he want to go to Manchester, Barcelona or Real Madrid, when everything is here for him?
“Dele Alli, exactly the same – performing at the top of his game, a regular for England.
“They don’t need to leave to win trophies. You don’t have to go anywhere else when Tottenham are progressing.”
Spurs are undefeated at home this season in the Premier League and host Southampton next weekend.
