Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to move back into the top four when they face Everton at Goodison Park on Monday evening. 

The Lilywhites had occupied fourth place for a number of weeks before Newcastle United’s victory over Manchester United on Sunday, which prompted The Magpies to leapfrog The Lilywhites, pushing them down to fifth.

Cristian Stellini will be on the touchline for Spurs following Antonio Conte’s departure last weekend, and the Italian coach will be hoping he can continue his strong record when taking charge of the club.

Stellini masterminded wins over Chelsea, Manchester City, West Ham United and Marseille while Conte was recovering from surgery, and Spurs fans will hope that he can continue his impressive run against The Toffees.

In the meantime, though, it appears that the north London outfit have been dealt a huge blow.

According to Football Insider, Harry Kane has told close friends that he won’t be signing a new contract with the club amid ongoing uncertainty.

Kane is reportedly reluctant to sign a new deal with Spurs

The report claims that Kane, 29, is reluctant to commit his long-term future to The Lilywhites while they don’t have a permanent manager in charge.

Another issue plaguing Spurs at present is the fact that managing director Fabio Paratici had his ban from Italian football extended to a worldwide suspension last week.

The England international has also been heavily linked with a move to rivals Manchester United in recent weeks.

Kane is contracted to Spurs until next summer, which could mean that the upcoming transfer window represents their last chance of securing a significant fee for the player, rather than losing him for free next year.

In the last three months, Kane has become both Tottenham’s and England’s highest goal scorer, and he is closing in on the Premier League record of 260.

At present, the striker has netted 271 times in 425 matches for Spurs, including 204 goals in the Premier League.

Spurs staff and fans alike will be desperate for the Englishman to stay put in north London, but it appears increasingly likely that this season may be his last with the club.
