Wimbledon's top scorer in all competitions is Lyle Taylor with 11 goals, while Harry Kane has netted 24 times for Tottenham.

Liverpool's key player Philippe Coutinho has just been lured away by Barcelona.

Kane's double was crucial as Spurs saw off AFC Wimbledon 3-0 in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

Manchester United are ready to steal a march on the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid by launching a big-money swoop for Tottenham hitman Harry Kane, according to reports in Spain via the Manchester Evening News.

"I think Harry is special".

We also already expect that Kane would be the player for whom Spurs would smash their wage structure, as no matter how much he loves the club paying one of (if not the) best striker in European football £125k/week isn't sustainable.

"But we need to be careful and clear in how we manage him".

Wintry Mix Possible Sunday
Cloudy skies, light-to-moderate breezes, and steady temperatures in the low 20s are projected for Sunday night . The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for St.

Kane has established himself as one of the world's best players and finished 2017 with 56 goals for club and country which is more than any other player in Europe, including the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The thing is with the cup, you can never be too sure.

'That's why it's important to work together and try to achieve all we want.

Wimbledon then came agonisingly close to an opener on 29 minutes, but Spurs stopper Michel Vorm touched Jimmy Abdou's curling shot from outside the box onto the crossbar, before keeping out the follow up effort.

Moussa Sissoko was the man who created it, breaking free on the right-hand side of the box and firing in a low cross which was bundled over the line by Kane.

Vertonghen wrapped up the win with the third strike for Tottenham in the 71st minute.

Mauricio Pochettino insists they will do all they can to keep Kane in north London and the striker has over four years left on his contract so no doubt it would take well in excess of £150m to tempt them in to a sale. We hope to get a home draw.
