Harry Kane

is "the best No. 9 in the world” and every club would want him if he ever becomes available.

Therefore, Jose Mourinho is going to need to deliver honors this season to keep a key player in his team, as their rivals are ready to spend more money to sign him.

“If Harry Kane became available or if he wanted to leave Tottenham, he could go anywhere he wanted in the world,” Sheringham said.

“I think every club in the world would want him as their No.9. I think he’s that good. I think he’s the best No.9 in the world. So, Tottenham need to keep hold of him, Tottenham need to win things to do that. If they don’t, who knows where he could end up.”

While Sheringham is hoping to see Kane remain at


, he believes

Dele Alli

needs a change of scenery to get back on track again.

“When you’re a young lad, everyone has little dips in form and you come back – when you’re a top player, you come back with your form after that,” Sheringham added. 

“Dele Alli is having a dip now that’s lasting a bit too long for my liking. He needs to – whether it be at Tottenham or wherever he’s going to go or whatever he’s going to do, he needs to get back to basics and concentrate on his football, because you only get one career. You look back on it and think ‘what a waste’ at the end of it if you don’t make the most of it. 

“He needs to get his head screwed on about being a top footballer and what made him a top footballer before, and how he’s going to do that again to become a top footballer again.”

Although Alli may depart during the winter window, Sheringham thinks Tottenham do not need any new player.

“I said recently that Gareth Bale is probably as good a signing – apart from signing Lionel Messi, who’s like the best player in the world, for them to get Gareth Bale in the last window was just amazing for me. 

“I know he hasn’t come in and done anything so exciting yet, but just to have him there. Hopefully, he’s getting better and better fitness-wise and getting used to the Premier League again. To have him as backup is amazing. 

“To have any more, to sign anyone else, where would you go? I think Jose is getting the best out of his players at the moment, and long may that continue, that’s all you can ask as a manager. So, you’re top of the league, why would you look at any other places or positions or players to come in when everybody’s performing so well?”
