World class or not? I ask this because I still think he's under-rated by many and I've often heard people say that although he's very good, he's not on the same level as Aguero, Lewandowski and Benzema etc.

I always find this notion quite staggering considering his record. Let's not forget that his record that compares to the players mentioned is also while playing for Spurs, a side that although at times over the years have been an excellent side, aren't at the same level as Bayern, Madrid or Man City.

One thing I've always thought isn't as appreciated as much as it should be is his passing. Some of the balls he plays at times for a big, physical striker are almost Pirlo-esque. I can only think he doesn't get all the credit he deserves from some quarters because of his speech impediment and the fact that he's not flashy, and is very much a family man you never really read about in the tabloids other than we he does in the pitch.

World class for sure. He’d be able to match Lewandowski’s levels if he replaced him in that Bayern side.

Unfortunately, I think he’s a bit stuck now at Spurs, due to clubs spending less, Levy will still demand a huge fee and his injuries seems to be creeping up.

Yeah, he would. I had an argument of sorts with some Scottish bloke recently who was saying although Kane's a good player he's nowhere near the same class as Lewandowski, and completely ignored the facts I pointed out about his actual goalscoring record. While Spurs aren't FC Bayern, one could also argue that the EPL is also a more demanding league than the Bundesliga. I would say that Lewandowski is the best striker of his kind in the world as he's sensational. But for me to suggest that Kane is nowhere near that level is absolute nonsense.

His overall game is very good but he is a world class finisher.

If you want to add goals to your team then Kane is the man to go for, surprised nobody has made a real bid for him so far.
