Cape Town - Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira had high praise for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane ahead of next Tuesday’s Champions League clash in Turin.

Kane leads the Premier League scoring charts with 22 goals, leading the Germany international to make a claim that might hurt the feelings of his Juve teammates Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.

"Harry Kane for me is maybe the most complete striker, actually," Khedira told BBC Sport.

"There is also Robert Lewandowski and Higuain too, but he is strong, good with his head, fast, good with his feet, can score with one touch, he can dribble.

"For me he's an amazing player and still young, so Tottenham are lucky to have him."

Khedira also gave his take on the team as a whole and on manager Mauricio Pochettino, as spurs prepare for Saturday’s north London derby against Arsenal at Wembley.

"I watched them a lot this year, against Liverpool and Arsenal," Khedira added. "They are strong, because they have good defending, a really good midfield, a world class attacking line and a really good coach.

"They are still young, maybe that is a good thing for us. We have to be super-focused, because for me they are one of the best teams in Europe and in England."
