Tottenham striker Harry Kane seemed pretty happy with the Champions League draw with Spurs set to face Barcelona, PSV and Inter Milan.

Kane scored seven goals in seven games for Spurs last season as they topped a tough group including Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Spurs were eventually knocked out by Juventus, but Kane is looking forward to a new campaign in Europe.

“It’s a brilliant draw, games at famous stadiums like the Nou Camp, the San Siro, it’s a really good draw, one to relish,” he said.

“We showed people last season that we can compete at this level, particularly when you look at the games against Real Madrid, who went on to win the tournament.

“Barca will be a different test but to play in the Nou Camp against some of the best players in the world...it’s fantastic to play in these types of games.

“You want to play in big games against the best players and this draw gives us a chance as a Club to once again test ourselves against the best.

”PSV will be tough, a huge team in Holland and Inter as well, a great history. As I said, it’s a brilliant draw.”

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will provide Barcelona with a really tough test. The north Londoners have a team full of talent including Kane, Dele Alli and Barca target Christian Eriksen.
