Harry Kane record: Where does Tottenham striker rank among all-time Premier League goalscorers – Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney both in his sights

    Harry Kane has moved to within twenty of Manchester United icon Wayne Rooney in the top two of the Premier League’s all-time scoring charts.

    Kane was on the scoresheet again as Tottenham beat Fulham 2-1, and scored twice against Nottingham Forest at the end of August.

    These goals moved the England captain past Andy Cole, and with his favoured opponents Leicester next up, he’ll be itching to close the gap to the top two even further.

    Kane has said in the past that he has his sights set on breaking Alan Shearer’s incredible record of 260 goals.

    He still has the best part of ten years to keep scoring in the top-flight and his form this year suggests he’ll be finding the back of the net on a regular basis.

    Kane is now in the top four on the all-time Premier League charts but who else makes the list behind main man Shearer?
