Harry Kane says the arrival of Erling Haland and Darwin Nunez in the Premier League will inspire him to improve on the impressive gold shoe competition.
Ken has won three Golden Boot awards in the English Premier League – 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2020-21 – and has scored 17 goals in Tottenham’s Champions League campaign this season.
Spurs team-mate Son Heng Min has scored the most goals in the Premier League this season with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (23).
Nunez is set to join Liverpool after paying 64 75m (€ 75m) from Benfica for Jurgen Klopp’s attack at Anfield.
Nunez has scored 48 goals in 85 games in all competitions, scoring 1.2 goals in 90 minutes in the Portuguese Premier League.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola has bolstered his attacking options with Premier League champions Manchester City following the break-up of Hlanden’s move to Borussia Dortmund.
Norway has scored 86 goals in 89 appearances for Dortmund since joining from Salzburg in January 2020; He scored an average of 84 minutes in all competitions.
Ken will not be able to compete with either of them next season as the Premier League adds more talent to their ranks.
“Look, I think the battle for the Golden Boot is always going to be tough,” Ken told a news conference ahead of Monday’s game against England in the National League.
“The Premier League has produced some of the best strikers in the world for a number of years.
“I think every season I have been playing there has always been a tough fight to win that golden boot and it is no different.
“You expect great strikers to play in the Premier League and so do the two new signings.
“It helps me compete better as a player, it motivates me to improve and improve. I look forward to the test. ”
When City tried to fill the void left by Sergio Aguero at the Etihad Stadium, they failed to find the English striker and the construction of the Ken 2021-22 season was a distraction.
Ken could have a simple pre-season at this point and he could use that to prepare for another campaign under Spurs head coach Antonio Conte.
I try to get started and focus on myself. He added that I have goals and goals that I want to achieve in any season.
“I try not to focus too much on other players, I can’t control what they do.
But all I have to do is keep working hard and improving and have a good rest after this game but I expect the pre-season to be tough.
“And then for the past seven years, I’m preparing for the new season, just like I did eight years ago.”
