How many people know that Harry Kane was deemed not worthy of being an Arsenal player? Today, he is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world.
Harry Kane is known as one of the most prolific scorers while his ability to drop down deep and link other forwards is immaculate.
How it Began:
Kane began his professional career with the North London side, Tottenham Hotspur. His immense talent led to his promotion to the senior team in the year 2009 only, when he was just 16.
However, he was usually loaned to other clubs and was not the first-choice forward for the Premier League side. He played for Leyton Orient, Millwall, Leicester City, and Norwich City too.
Finally, post Mauricio Pochettino's arrival in London in 2014, Kane played his first full season with the club. From then till today, we've seen a complete turnaround in his mentality, perhaps the only thing that was lacking when he was a teen.
