Harry Kane has his eyes set on Robert Lewandowski’s single-season Bundesliga goal record after scoring twice in Bayern Munich’s 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, though he knows he needs “to get a move on”.

Kane scored in both halves on Saturday to take his tally to 42 goals this season across all competitions, also reaching the 400-goal mark at senior level for clubs and country.

The striker scored 280 of those goals for Tottenham, holding the honour of being the club’s all-time leading scorer, while he is also the most prolific player in England history with 62 goals for the Three Lions.

With 35 goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances this season, Kane now has his eyes set on another piece of history.

Former Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski holds the record for the most goals scored in a single Bundesliga campaign, netting 41 times in 2020-21.

Asked about the possibility of breaking that record with just three games remaining in Bayern’s league campaign, Kane said: “It’s possible, but obviously I have to get a move on!

“I’ve got to maybe score a few goals next week. It’s there, it’s in touching distance.

“It depends on the last few games of course, but it was nice to add to it today and score a couple of goals to help the team.”

Bayern next host Real Madrid in the first leg of a Champions League semi-final tie on Tuesday, before travelling to face Stuttgart on Saturday.
