William Gallas, a former Tottenham defender, feels the club should cash in on Harry Kane and transfer him at the conclusion of the season.

After finishing last season as the Premier League’s top goal scorer and assist provider, Kane has struggled to demonstrate his finest form at Spurs this season.

Following a summer in which a bid to leave the club due to interest from Manchester City fell through, he has only scored five times in 21 Premier League games this season.

Gallas, who played 78 times for Spurs between 2010 and 2013, believes that the England captain is no longer at his best for the club and that the north London club should trade him at the conclusion of the season.

‘At the start of the season, I told them they had to sell him.’ ‘Harry really wanted to leave and was sad that he didn’t,’ he said.

‘When you’re disappointed, you have two options: you can make amends and return to the field to play as needed, or you can give up.’

He hasn’t scored as many goals as one may think at the moment. He’s been the club and Premier League’s top scorer for the previous few years, and it’s nearly seemed like he’d rather be playing elsewhere at times.

‘Tottenham, in my opinion, has no choice but to let him leave now, at the end of the season.’

Kane’s form appeared to be improving in December after netting in three consecutive Premier League games. But he has only scored in one of the last five top-flight appearances since the turn of the year.

Gallas was a member of Tottenham’s remarkable run to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2011 under Harry Redknapp, who now fears Antonio Conte’s departure as manager.

Conte has been dissatisfied with Tottenham’s January transfer activities, and Redknapp feels the fiery Italian may go if his lofty demands to make Spurs competitive are not met.

‘I get the impression with him that if he thinks this isn’t going well, he’s not going to stick around,’ Redknapp said.

‘It’s not what he’s used to; he’s always managed top clubs with top players,’ says the source.

‘I don’t think he’ll continue around if he doesn’t see some improvement and a chance to be up there competing for something,’ says the coach. ‘I think he’ll grow disillusioned very fast.’
