Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has labelled Manchester City winger Leroy Sane as the best German in the Premier League ahead of his trip to the country to face Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund this week.
The Citizens attacker has made a huge impact since swapping the Veltins-Arena of Schalke for the Etihad Stadium in the summer of 2016 for around £45m, netting 11 goals in 37 appearances and bagging the top flight's Player of the Month award for October.
It has been believed for some time that Arsenal's Mesut Ozil was in fact Die Mannschaft's highest quality representative in England, however the prolific Spurs talisman believes that title belongs to City's 21-year-old.
"Leroy Sane of Manchester City", Kane told Bild. "He just impresses me. He is so fast, aggressive, difficult to stop in one against one and he’s scored often this season.
"It’s nice to have him in the Premier League."
Despite Kane and his Tottenham side travelling to Germany this week for their Champions League clash with Dortmund, the conversation then took a turn towards the World Cup, with England preparing to find out their summer opponents for next year on December 1.
The 24-year-old withdrew from Gareth Southgate's squad ahead of the November friendlies recently, where the Three Lions played host to, and impressed against, the FIFA-ranked top two teams in the world, Die Mannschaft and Brazil.
"We have recently achieved great results in friendlies against great teams like Germany and Brazil", the striker added.
"Even without me, because I was injured. We have improved enormously. But a World Cup is about more than just quality. You have to be a team and stick together. Even if you lose. We have nothing to lose in Russia at all.
"You know, sometimes people forget what a great nation we are. We have players in our squad who are among the best in Europe.
"We have pressure, but we have to hide it. We just have to go on the pitch with confidence, defend well in the back, score and enjoy the game."
