Harry Kane should have parity with the Premier League’s top earner, says Jamie Redknapp

Jamie Redknapp believes that Tottenham Hotspur need to increase Harry Kane‘s wages to ensure that he stays at the club.

Kane currently earns around £100,000-a-week after signing a new contract in 2016, as reported by the Mirror, but Redknapp feels that Tottenham must break their wage structure or risk losing the England striker.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: “Everything is there for him at Spurs. They have a great young team but it’s a case of rewarding him. Make it right that he stays at Tottenham.

“Whatever the top player in the country is on, he should have parity. It’s as simple as that.

“I think the cat is out of the bag now, everyone knows how much the top players are on. Kyle Walker will be telling his mates how much he’s earning at Manchester City and that will be a problem.”

Tottenham are renowned for their wage structure being rather stringent in comparison to that of other Premier League clubs, while they must also manage the cost of their stadium move.

Retaining the services of Kane, however, is paramount to ensuring that Tottenham can compete at the highest level.

Having failed to score in August, Kane has proceeded to score six times for Tottenham in September and is undoubtedly one of the standout players in the Premier League having won the division’s golden boot on the last two occasions.

Although Kane’s current Tottenham contract runs until the summer of 2022, there will certainly be interest in the 24-year-old from major clubs in the near future.
