Antonio Conte says now is ‘perfect time’ for Tottenham to sign Harry Kane to new deal

Antonio Conte has called on Tottenham Hotspur to sign Harry Kane to a new contract now as it is the “perfect time”.

Earlier on Monday, Conte said he believed everyone at Tottenham wanted Kane to pen a fresh deal. Kane is under contract until June 2024.

The striker has been in good form this season and scored twice on Sunday against Nottingham Forest won 2-0.

The Italian thinks Kane is crucial to Spurs both as a player and a symbol for the club and said: “I think that my opinion is only one of one million opinions. To force the club, to tell the club, to sign a new contract for Harry Kane.

“Because I repeat: We are talking about a world-class striker, we are talking about a player that in this moment is the most representative player for Tottenham, no? For sure, I’d like to sign a new contract for Harry.

“But in this moment, for me, it’s very important to see him happy, totally involved in this season, totally involved in this project.

“Totally involved in what we are doing. For me this is the most important thing. Then, it’s a decision that the player and the club, they have to take.”

Conte was asked whether this was the right moment to sign him up, and added: “Yes, the perfect time. But you know very well: you create the perfect time with a project.

“If also the player understands that there is a right process, and that everybody, we are going in the same direction. Every single player wants to see this.

“And I think Harry for sure is happy, because he is seeing this type of situation.

“There is a vision, there is a direction, there is a unity, to try to improve. To improve the team, and also to try to bring the team in the level of his expectations.”

Tottenham, who are third, face West Ham on Wednesday night.
