Kane’s header against Arsenal, which saw him leap above Laurent Koscielny and nod the ball beyond a helpless Petr Cech, was his 24th Premier League goal of the season.
And ex-Celtic and Arsenal front-man Hartson claims Kane’s record is now so impressive that he is above Robert Lewandowski and Luis Suarez in terms of being considered the best striker in world football.
Lewandowski has scored 18 times in the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich, while Suarez currently has 16 goals to his name in La Liga, proving Hartson’s opinion can be backed up statistically.
Hartson was speaking on BT Sport Score when he described the England international as an “all-round perfect centre-forward”:
“He’s the all-round perfect centre-forward.”@JohnHartson10 has no doubt that Harry Kane is the best striker in the world right now…

Where does Kane stand amongst the best goal-scorers in the world?
And does he need to win silverware to be considered an elite striker?
