Despite Nuno’s comments, Kane has previously expressed his desire to leave Tottenham this summer.
Kane, who scored four goals to help England reach the final of Euro 2020, is on the hunt for silverware and believes that could require him to leave the North London club.
Nevertheless, Nuno and the club’s new sporting director Fabio Paratici understand the importance of keeping Kane at the club.
Nuno added: ‘Harry Kane is one of the best players in the world, that says it all.
‘What I wish is for Harry to recover well and when he arrives he will feel that every one of us has to commit ourselves to become better.
‘We are ambitious people, we want to do well and we count on Harry.’
