Peter Crouch says “there is no limit” to what Harry Kane can do, and that the Tottenham captain has become the best “creator” at the club.
Kane recorded his eighth assist in six Premier League appearances as Spurs earned a 1-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday night.
The England international headed an Eric Lamela cross straight into the path of Son Heung-min at the back post, who nodded past Nick Pope in the Clarets’ net to earn the visitors all three points.
Kane has been content to drop a bit deeper this season and pick out Son’s runs in the final third, and Crouch has been hugely impressed to see him show off his passing range after so many years of being pegged as a traditional centre-forward.
“There is no limit to what this boy can do,” the former Tottenham forward told PA. “I played with him when he was a young kid at Tottenham and I was in the first team and he has always scored goals and he has always been a finisher.
“He scores every type of goal but when I look at him dropping deep and making those passes, it’s just fantastic to watch and he’s become a creator for Son and it’s mouth-watering when you add (Gareth) Bale in there as well.
“The runs they make are so quick and Kane’s ability to find them is just amazing. He drops deep into the pockets and pick out passes. He is Tottenham’s best goalscorer and also their best creator.”
