“Fifty goals is a target I’d love to get, obviously,” Kane told reporters .
“Hopefully I can stay fit for the whole season and yeah, 50 goals is something I’d love to achieve.”
Reflecting on his season, he added: “It’s been a very good year this year, plenty still to work on and improve on. There’s a lot to look forward to next season. It’s very exciting.”
“Obviously coming second last year and the Champions League, we want to improve and going into that World Cup, there’s no better trophy to win in the world.”
