Kane is one of the early front-runners for the PFA Player of the Season and Merson added that his game has taken the best elements of Premier League legends Alan Shearer and Dennis Bergkamp.
He added: Kane is playing sometimes as a No 9 and sometimes deeper as a 10 – and he’s world class at BOTH. He can play a 30-yard pass through the eye of a needle.
“Dennis Bergkamp was a great No 10. Alan Shearer was a great No 9. Ask them to do each other’s jobs and they’d struggle. Kane can do both. How many other players can do that?
“Maybe he doesn’t score 30 goals this season. But if he scores 20, bags plenty of assists, and Spurs win the league, he won’t care.”
