Kane has been exceptional for Spurs over the years and is rumored to be leaving the club soon too. Considering his recent performances, a lot of clubs will line up for him.

Sixth-highest scorer in the history of the Premier League

Most goals in a Premier League season
The record for most goals in a single Premier League season is held by Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian international scored 32 goals during the 2017/18 season for Liverpool. This is a record for a season that has 38 total games which is the norm now.
Harry Kane is definitely capable of breaking that record, if he continues his form this season. Tottenham Hotspur are battling for a top-four finish, relying heavily on their star player to deliver. The 27-year-old has already scored 21 goals in the competition and is in a rich vein of form.
Most number of assists in a Premier League season

The record for most number of assists in a single Premier League season is shared by Thierry Henry and Kevin De Bruyne. Both the magnificent players notched up 20 assists for their respective clubs. Kane has the opportunity to match or even better that number by the end of the season.
Most goal contributions in a Premier League season
Harry Kane has come forth as an all-round striker this season. He has been a great provider of assists in addition to scoring a lot of goals. Unlike popular opinion amongst fans, Harry Kane has not been as selfish of a striker which he usually is claimed to be.
From the 30 league fixtures, Harry Kane has a goal contribution of 34 (20 goals, 11 assists). He is only 10 goal contributions behind Thierry Henry’s record of 44 set during the 2002/03 season. There is a real chance that Kane will break this record, with eight games left to play.
Sixth-highest assist maker in the history of the club
Harry Kane has been a great team player, as mentioned above. In addition to scoring goals, he has developed an eye for assists too. The forward has delivered 16 assists in 44 overall games this term and will add more to his tally.
At the moment, Kane has 46 assists for Spurs, one less than teammate Erik Lamela who has 47. The form of the two players suggests that the Englishman is more likely to pass the Argentine before the season has concluded. However, Kane is still far off from the all-time leading assist provider for Spurs, a record held by Christian Eriksen with 90 assists.
