Harry Kane pleased with Tottenham’s ‘big signings’

Harry Kane has revealed he has been impressed with Tottenham’s transfer market activity so far this summer.

Spurs will take their total incomings this window to six players once they announce the signing of Djed Spence.

Tottenham’s business has also seen them land the likes of Inter wing-back Ivan Perisic, Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma and Everton forward Richarlison.

Speaking to football.london, Kane – who was itching to leave the club this time last year – admitted that Spurs have indeed made some ‘big signings’ and he is looking ahead to the new campaign.

“I’m just looking forward to the new season and looking forward to seeing what we can do,” Kane replied when asked about last summer’s saga.

“It’s a big season. We’ve made some big signings, early signings which is great. We haven’t won a trophy in a long time. We haven’t been at the level we know we can in the last two or three years, although we’ve done really well to get a Champions League spot. That gave everyone a good boost around the whole club, and an incentive to go and push on this season. We’ve got that to look forward to but there’s still work to do before the start of the new season.

“It’s been a great pre-season so far. I’ve been back five or six days and it’s been a really good camp. We’ve worked really hard. We’ve got some new singings, some new faces, there’s a buzz about the place. It’s been difficult at times in certain sessions but it’s been good and everyone’s excited for the season.

“It’s not the longest pre-season ever. It will only be a few weeks until that first game but that suits us. We’re working in the right direction. Hopefully we can use some momentum from the end of last season to take it into this year and keep pushing on.”

Regarding Spurs’ window so far, Kane added: “I know there’s excitement among the fans and rightly so, there always is going into any season. It helps with preparation, it helps knowing these guys have been there and done it and got good experience in the Premier League or around the best clubs in Europe, and they’re here to help.

“We need a big squad if we’re going to compete at the highest level in all four competitions. When you look at last season, we were getting down to bare bones and it’s great to bulk up the squad with great players. there’s some great competition for places.”
