Tottenham ready to offer Kane, Alderweireld improved contracts

Tottenham Team Manager Mauricio Pochettino and Erik Lamela speak to the media during a Tottenham Hotspur training session at AAMI Park

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.

'I told him he seems like (Francesco) Totti in Italy, only a few players so special can spend their whole careers in one club.

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino breathed a sigh of relief after his side overcame some early second half pressure to ease past AFC Wimbledon.

"The magic of the cup has been proven so many times and anything can happen, so as long as we approach the game in the right manner, and approach the game to win, we should hopefully have no trouble".

Kane was inches away from connecting to a good delivery from the left from Erik Lamela, before George Long was forced to parry an 18th minute Lamela shot wide.

Kane beat both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the highest goalscoring tally of previous year - 56 in total - and has attracted the attention of Zinedine Zidane, who will look to replace Karim Benzema at the end of the season.

Erik Lamela of Tottenham Hotspur shakes hands with Mauricio Pochettino Manager of Tottenham Hotspur after replaced during the Barclays Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that despite reports claiming he does not really care about the club winning the FA Cup or the EFL Cup, he does.

Wimbledon defended stubbornly and came close to scoring in the 29th minute, when Abdou's curling effort - their first shot of the afternoon - was pushed onto the woodwork by Vorm, who recovered quickly to hold onto the follow-up effort.

Wimbledon exhausted after that, with Vertonghen adding the third goal from range after robbing Lyle Taylor deep in opposition territory as Spurs saw out the closing stages comfortably.

Wimbledon had proved stubborn opposition until a Moussa Sissoko cross found Kane who slid in to prod the ball home.

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

Kane was expected to be rested for the game but having been selected from the start by Pochettino, it was no great surprise that he was the man to make the difference. The English-striker has 24 goals in all competitions this season and he is averaging a goal every 91 minutes.
