Tottenham star Harry Kane has set his sights on a century of Premier League goals as he closes in on this season's Golden Boot.

Kane scored four goals in Tottenham's 6-1 drubbing of fallen champions Leicester City on Thursday to move into pole position in the race for the Premier League's leading scorer.

The 23-year-old England international improved to 26 goals – two clear of Everton's Romelu Lukaku with one match remaining.

Kane has already turned his attention to 2017-18, targeting 100 goals as he currently sits on 75 Premier League strikes.

"I think I said to someone the other day it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season," Kane said.

Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world

  Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino called Harry Kane one of the best strikers in the world after the England striker scored four times as Spurs hammered Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night. Kane’s quadruple strike moved him to the top of the pile in the race for the Golden Boot, two goals clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku. Spurs travel to Hull City at the weekend, whilst Everton will face Arsenal at the Emirates, so it looks like Kane will end the season as the league’s top scorer for the second year in a row. When asked about his striker, Pochettino said: “To be fair when he was injured, other players scored goals, like Son, or (Dele) Alli or (Christian) Eriksen but it’s true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world.” It’s hard to argue with the manager’s assessment of his star man as he continually finds the back of the net and, if he can continue in this manner, we can all envisage a bright future for Tottenham. Kane, along with the likes of Alli and Eriksen will look to go one better next season and win the Premier League title, although to do so, they will have to quickly come to terms with playing at their temporary home of Wembley Stadium, a place where they’ve had very limited success in recent years.

Harry Kane has targeted a century of Premier League goals as he closes in on defending the Golden Boot. "I think I said to someone the other day it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season ," Kane said.

"I am on 75 in the league and if there is another season like this then hopefully I can get to the 100. It would be a fantastic achievement.

"I think there were three games I did not score in [at the start of the season] and then I went on a good run.

"The biggest thing I'm proud of is that I had two big injuries and was out for 11 weeks so to still be there at the top of the Premier League and to score 30-plus goals [across all competitions] is a big achievement. Hopefully next season I can get off in the first game, get a couple of goals and go from there."

Tottenham close out their season at relegated Hull City on Sunday.
