According to Whoscored, the England captain has already contributed to 10 goals and provided five assists for the Bavarian club this season.

Kane's exceptional performance at the Allianz Arena has garnered widespread attention, and the club's coach, Thomas Tuchel, did not hold back in expressing his admiration for the world-class forward.

Tuchel speaks on Kane

Ahead of their critical UEFA Champions League match against Turkish champions Galatasaray, the 51-year-old coach spoke highly of his star player.

Quoted via @iMiaSanMia, he said:

"He's more than talented, he's absolutely world-class. He has talent, ability, aura, personality, modesty, and love and dedication to the game.
We persuaded the captain of England to leave England and I think we can pat ourselves on the back for that for a while.
He's a huge signing. Harry has made a super start and will get even better the longer he trains with us and once his family arrives too. When he feels at home here, we'll see his full potential."

Tuchel went on to say,

"Harry has made a fantastic start and will only improve further as he continues to train with us and once his family joins him. When he truly feels at home here, we will witness his full potential."

Kane has effortlessly handled the immense pressure that comes with playing for a Bundesliga giant and is believed to be increasingly influential in the Bayern dressing room. The club has high hopes that his prowess will aid them in their quest to secure the UEFA Champions League trophy by the end of the season.

With regards to tonight’s opponent, Bayern have only faced Galatasaray twice in the past, in the 1972/73 European Cup. The Bavarian drew the first leg away 1-1 before a 6-0 win in Munich.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported England's dramatic come-from-behind victory over Italy, which ensured they secured their spot in the upcoming Euros tournament, featured a standout performance from Harry Kane.

The Bayern Munich star, who has been in remarkable form following his move to the Bundesliga club, extended his scoring streak by netting two goals in front of the Wembley crowd.

Kane's double on the night propelled him past Sir Bobby Charlton, making him the all-time leading goal scorer for the England men's team at Wembley, with an impressive total of 24 goals at the national stadium.
