Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is set to battle Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the race to retain the Golden Boot at the end of the current campaign.

Salah has been in good form for Liverpool since his arrival from AS Roma last summer and has 29 goals in 31 leagues appearances.

Tottenham forward Kane is on 25 goals this season and the English striker is keen on winning the race of the Golden boot despite been four goals short of the tie.

Kane was asked if he will get past Salah by Sky Sports and he said: "We will see. He has done great, he has had an amazing season and has gone ahead, so we will see.

"Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well, it's a bit of excitement. He scores four, let's see what I can come back with.

"Whatever happens at the end of the season, both of us will have had good seasons and we both enjoy it. It's just the competition and trying to win, that's what I enjoy."

Kane has been touted with a move to Real Madrid after having a good outing with Spurs this season.

And, while he does not appear to be in a huge rush to leave Spurs, he reiterated his ambition to win trophies.

"My dreams are to stay at a consistently high level for the next seven, eight, nine years," he said.

"I want to keep myself in good shape, play for a long time. I think that is what makes a good player, doing it year in, year out if you can catch records that's amazing.

"I don't think of that but it comes along the way. I want to be a consistent goal-scorer for the next 10 years.

"Every day thought forms in my head that I want to win a trophy, how good it would be to win the FA Cup this year, or the Premier League next year, or the World Cup in the summer.

"That's definitely what I want to achieve. We still have a chance this year and I think if we do win the FA Cup and finish top four it would be a good season."
