Harry Kane is widely regarded as the talisman at Tottenham Hotspur due to his scintillating form in front of goal over the last few seasons.
The England international has been the Premier League’s top scorer over the past two campaigns and he could claim his third in the coming weeks, but he will have to overcome Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian currently leads the way with 29, five more than Kane, who recently had a spell on the sidelines with injury.
Even though the striker is deemed Tottenham’s best player, former defender Graham Roberts believes that another member of the team deserves to be named the club’s Player of the Year.
On Twitter, the 58-year-old suggested that Jan Vertonghen should be handed the accolade for his performances in defence this season.
Much of the campaign has been focused on the centre-back’s partner Toby Alderwerield due to the Belgian’s ongoing contract situation.
Vertonghen has been going about his business away from the radar but his consistently strong displays in the Premier League have not gone unnoticed.
I know early days but I am also laying down a marker that @JanVertonghen should win spurs player of the year been nothing short of magnificent this season.
