Jamie O’Hara does not believe the club should stand in the way of the star striker if he wants to leave this summer.

Tottenham will be sensible to cash in on Harry Kane, according to Jamie O’Hara, who thinks the striker is”at his peak now with respect to his market value.”

Kane was enjoying another superb individual season at Spurs before his progress was halted by a hamstring injury, netting 17 goals in 25 appearances across all contests.

Alas, the England centre-forward was ruled out of action for four months after undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured tendon, leaving head coach Jose Mourinho with few alternative choices up front.

Spurs have just picked up five wins from their last 15 matches in Kane’s absence, slipping seven points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea from the top-flight standings while leaving the FA Cup and Champions League.

The club’s long wait for silverware is destined to drag on for at least one year, with question marks now being raised over whether Mourinho is the ideal person to deliver real success.

Kane refused to rule out leaving the club in the near future in a Q&A on Instagram earlier this week, while opening up on his ambition to become one of the world’s top players.

O’Hara says that he can”understand” that the 26-year-old’s”frustration” after seven years at the first team without a trophy, also believes Tottenham should consider promoting a prized asset that has been connected with Manchester United and Real Madrid in recent weeks.

“Is Harry Kane’s ambition to acquire a League Cup? Because that is where Tottenham are taking a look at this time,” the ex-Spurs midfielder told talkSPORT.

“They are nowhere near the Premier League and I do not believe they can do the heroics they did in the Champions League again — are they going to be inside [next year ]?

“Tottenham should rebuild; they have got to earn four or five new players to actually change that staff and get them playing where they have to be.

“I could understand Harry’s frustration, and he is getting to the stage now where he is a world-class footballer who’s worth plenty of money, and whether the trophies aren’t likely to come in another two or three seasons in Spurs, which is looking likely, do they eliminate him and money in?

“If you are going to sell Harry Kane, you have got to sell him at his peak — and he is at his peak now with respect to his market value.”
