Champions League to spur club’s transfers
TOTTENHAM Hotspur’s participation in next season’s Champions League will be a big attraction for leading soccer players in the upcoming transfer window, striker Harry Kane has said.
England international Kane scored the winning goal as Tottenham beat Newcastle United 1-0 on Wednesday to secure an English Premier League top-four finish and qualify for the Champions League for a third successive campaign.
Kane says the north London outfit’s presence in Europe’s elite competition will help Tottenham retain their best players and make quality additions to their squad.
“It is the big attraction. It is what everyone wants, especially the top players around the world,” Kane said.
“In transfer windows, you can never put your finger on it. But it is a big attraction, a massive new stadium, a great team.
“The next step is winning stuff, but this is a big year for us, hopefully we can have a massive year next year and win some trophies.”
The 24-year-old also said that Tottenham sealing a Champions League spot was a massive achievement given that the club played all of their home matches at Wembley while their new stadium is under construction. – Reuters
