Alan Shearer has jokingly told Harry Kane to “go abroad” when asked if the Tottenham Hotspur hitman broke his Premier League record.

The Newcastle United icon is the competition’s all-time leading goalscorer 260 high profile goals.

However, the Tottenham sensation has a real chance of breaking that record.

The 28-year-old, who will turn 29 in a month, has scored 183 Premier League goals, leaving 77 behind Shearer.

And while that remains a huge deficit, the legendary shooter has conceded that Kane has a “really good chance” of doing it.

He said Sky Sports: “He has a really good opportunity to do it. He’s a fantastic player. I know he wants it – badly – so yeah, he has a really good chance of doing it. I think he should be abroad!”

Could Kane break Alan Shearer’s record?

In a word, definitely.

But will he? Well, that’s a whole different question.

Kane wasn’t even Tottenham’s top scorer last season as Son Heung-min shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah.

This could perhaps be due to the fact that the England international seemed to play in a somewhat deeper position under Antonio Conte and often created opportunities rather than converted them.

With Spurs reportedly in the market for a playmaker this summer, the creative burden could well fall on someone else next season, which could theoretically allow Kane to rediscover his best talisman.

But as long as he enjoys a slight change in positional play, Shearer’s record has a better chance of staying intact for a while.
