Mauricio Pochettino: 'Impossible to value Harry Kane'

Mauricio Pochettino: 'Impossible to value Harry Kane'

Kane will finish 2017 with 56 goals in all competitions after netting another hat-trick against Southampton on Tuesday and will fancy his chances of continuing that fine form against the Premier League's bottom club Swansea.

Messi only broke his duck against Buffon earlier in the season, despite his record-breaking statistics in front of goal, and the Italy veteran seemingly ignored the No 10 when discussing his most prolific opponents, instead focusing his praise on Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

However, the Italian outfit face a hurdle in the shape of Kane and Spurs, a tie Buffon is wary of as he added: "They are going to be two hard games against Tottenham - we know that. We'll see how he reacts". "He asked to get off the pitch".

Tottenham have also confirmed Victor Wanyama is back in full first-team training after recovering from a knee problem that has sidelined him since August, while Toby Alderweireld continues his recovery from a hamstring injury that will keep him sidelined until February.

'Will he be fit to face Swansea?

"He has always been treated as a superstar. He's a doubt for Tuesday".

With the January transfer window opening on Monday, Pochettino was asked how much Kane would be worth in the current market - given Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is joining Liverpool for £75million.

"Now we have a lot of players that can be involved". I think Harry has no price because we want him here. I think we can talk about many things, but at the end it's talk for talk, because it's impossible to put a price.

"I think Harry doesn't have a price. In the last few games he started to improve, and we started to recognise him as a player who achieved all he achieved in the last few seasons", said Pochettino.

With every new achievement, the media narrative about Kane eventually departing Tottenham for a bigger club (and a bigger challenge) rears its ugly head again.

Pochettino has cause for confidence as a new year beckons but, as he looks back over the last 12 months, one moment stands out.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba leads the way on a whopping £290,000-a-week deal - more than DOUBLE the White Hart Lane striker.
