Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is hoping an impressive start to his Premier League career can see him emulate club legend Teddy Sheringham at White Hart Lane.
Kane has scored three goals in his first league starts for Spurs, with efforts coming against Sunderland, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham in an impressive start to life as a top flight player.
The 20 year old is set to be central figure in the Tottenham first team for the remainder of the campaign under Tim Sherwood following loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City.
And having gained a regular first team place, Kane has targeted matching the achievements of former Tottenham forward Sheringham, who attained legendary status during two spells in north London.
"He's a great finisher and was very good at getting in the box, scoring so many goals, especially for Spurs," Kane said. "As I grew up I tried to use him as a role model and if I can score as many goals as he did, it would not be bad.
"I met him once at a golf charity day and got to talking about Millwall [one of Kane's loan clubs] because he played for them as well. It was great to meet him.
"[My aim is] Just to score goals. As a striker you have got to score goals. It was only last year - we had a little chat about football. He's a great bloke and it was nice to meet him.
"I was a little bit star-struck, to be honest. When you meet your idol you don't really know what to say but we had great conversation."
Sheringham scored 125 goals across two spells at Tottenham either side of spending four years with Manchester United, where he won the treble.
The now 48-year old appeared in two World Cups with England amid winning 51 caps for his country and won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award in 2001.
Though in the infancy of his Tottenham career, Kane is getting used to the attention that comes with the lofty role of leading the line.
"I was the same when I was a young player coming (through)," he added. "When you saw a young English talent coming through the ranks you wanted to aspire to that. Hopefully young kids can do the same.
"People recognise me a bit more because I am at the top level and scoring goals. People want your picture and stuff but I am happy because I was a fan once."
