Spurs will finish 10th or 11th in the Premier League this season, according to former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor.
Tottenham have a new manager ahead of the new season with Nuno Espirito Santo taking the reins in north London after his departure from Wolves.
Spurs stuttered to a seventh-place finish last term after Jose Mourinho was sacked in April, only a month after their embarrassing exit from the Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb.
Son Heung-min recently signed a new contract but their pre-season has been dominated by talk of Harry Kane’s future as the striker looks for a move away.
The 28-year-old is keen to leave the club this summer in order to win trophies, but with three years left on his contract, Tottenham have no intention of selling their prized asset.
However, Kane has failed to report to the training ground over the last two days in an apparent move to force a transfer away from Spurs.
Kane has been in the Bahamas following England’s run to the Euro 2020 final and looks to have set his stall out to force a move from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
But the Tottenham striker reportedly insists the situation has been ‘blown out of proportion’ and he will return later this week.
With Kane agitating for a move away from Tottenham, former Villa man Agbonlahor can’t see anything but a mid-table finish for Spurs this season.
“I think it’s going to be a worrying season for Spurs,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“The Harry Kane saga and the whole squad means they’re going to be in trouble this season.
“They’ve got no chance of finishing seventh this season. I think Spurs are going to finish 10th or 11th this season. They’ve got a new manager coming in and it’s going to be a gradual process of him finding the perfect team to play.
“They’ve got good individual players but they need to get Dele Alli firing, is that going to happen? If Harry Kane stays is he going to be the same player? If he goes, who is going to score the goals?
“I think it’s going to be a tough season for Spurs.”
