As the Premier League welcomes two new superstar strikers, Harry Kane has stated that he “looks forward to the challenge.”
This morning, Erling Haaland was introduced as a Manchester City player, while Darwin Nunez is close to joining Liverpool for £85 million.
Kane, who has won the Premier League Golden Boot three times, now faces competition from two new players.
Both Haaland and Nunez have a poor goal scoring record, but Kane, England’s captain, is looking forward to the challenge.
Kane was asked about his thoughts on Haaland and Nunez, as well as the competition they will bring to the Golden Boot race, ahead of the Three Lions’ match against Hungary tomorrow.
“I think the Golden Boot battle is always tough,” the striker said. For several years, the Premier League has churned out some of the best strikers in the world.
“Winning the Golden Boot has always been a difficult battle for me in every season I’ve played, and this season is no exception.”
“You expect top strikers to want to play in the Premier League, and that will be the case, as you say, with those two new signings.”
“I believe that having good competition benefits me as a player because it motivates me to improve and improve.”
“I’m looking forward to the challenge,” she says.

In the previous campaign, Haaland scored 29 goals in 30 appearances, while Nunez scored 34 goals in 41 games.
Despite struggling in front of goal at times, Kane managed to score 27 goals in 50 games across all competitions.
Next season, the Tottenham talisman is hoping to equal Thierry Henry’s record of four Golden Boots by winning the competition.
