Tottenham boss plays down speculation over Chelsea move for forward star

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has come out to play down speculation over the departure of Chelsea target Harry Kane, Mirror reports.

The 22-year-old has emerged as potential striking target for the Blues ahead of the clash between the two teams this Sunday.

He seems to have now found top form despite starting the season with a shortage of goals, scoring his ninth goal from his previous six appearances in all competitions.

However, Pochettino admitted that he is happy that Kane is attracting interest from the Blues, but reassured the fans that the England international is keen on staying at White Hart Lane.

“I am happy that a big club want our players – this is because they show they are a top player with top performances. It is good when they are linked,” he said.

“But Harry, like Hugo Lloris, wants to stay here. He is one of the best players and he is very happy.”

The Blues are said to be keen on his services given the recent drop in form and disciplinary issues of current striker Diego Costa.

Costa was involved in a bust-up with manager Jose Mourinho at halftime during their Champions League clash with Maccabi Tel-Aviv earlier this week.

Apart from the current Premier League champions, Manchester United have also been heavily linked with a move for his services.
