Tottenham legend Clive Allen admits the time may now have come for Harry Kane to leave the club. Allen also claims Spurs chairman Daniel Levy may even view selling Kane as the best option for the north London side. The England captain is yet to win any team silverware in his playing career and has maintained competing for major honours is an ambition of his.
Kane and Tottenham crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday at the last-16 stage.
Spurs took a 2-0 lead to Dinamo Zagreb following the first leg but a Mislav Orsic hat-trick condemned Jose Mourinho’s side to an embarrassing defeat in Croatia.
The defeat has also damaged Tottenham’s chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Allen believes the financial impact of that could see Levy be open to selling either Kane or Son Heung-min.

And he reckons Kane may be keen on a move away despite his affiliation to the club.
Allen told talkSPORT: “I think as I said about Champions League football, the financial implications, without any shadow of a doubt Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are the major assets that Daniel Levy has.
“Would he be considering selling [Kane]? There will be suitors, I’m not sure there are too many that can actually afford him, but there’s one or two that certainly would be interested in Harry Kane’s services.
“His record is phenomenal, what he’s done for the club is amazing, but without winning anything.

“I think that the nature of the beast there has to come a point where he has to think about leaving the football club, which is unthinkable for Spurs fans.”
Meanwhile, former Spurs striker Peter Crouch claims Kane deserves to be playing a higher standard of football than the Europa League.
Crouch says the 27-year-old should be mixing it with the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe in the Champions League.
“Look at Harry Kane,” Crouch said on BT Sport.
“He’s a Champions League player – he shouldn’t even be in this competition. Mbappe, Haaland, [Lionel] Messi, [Robert] Lewandowski – he’s on their level.
“He is a Champions League player, but he has gone out to Dinamo Zagreb and that is the worrying thing.
“Where is his head at? Not just the manager, but those players, Son, Kane, they deserve to be playing at a higher level than the Europa League.
“Look at Kane now, trudging off with his held bowed.
“Never mind Mourinho, he [Kane] is at a real career crossroads now. He should be playing at the very top.”
