Harry Kane is aiming to join the Premier League's '100 Club' next season after becoming only the fifth player to reach the 25-goal mark in successive seasons.

Harry Kane is aiming to join the Premier League's '100 Club' next season after becoming only the fifth player to reach the 25-goal mark in successive seasons.

Kane scored four in Tottenham's 6-1 victory at Leicester on Thursday night to take his Premier League tally to 75.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at those still playing and in sight of three figures.

ROMELU LUKAKU (EVERTON) 84

The Belgian powerhouse has scored 24 of his Premier League goals at Everton this term and is two behind Kane in the race for this season's Golden Boot. A successful loan at West Brom yielded 17 strikes in 2012-13 but he never scored a league goal for Chelsea, making just one start despite the Blues paying Anderlecht £18million in 2011. Lukaku has scored 67 goals in 140 Everton games, but has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer.

HARRY KANE (TOTTENHAM) 75

At just 23, Kane is expected to reach his Premier League ton comfortably. Won the Golden Boot last season with 25 and has hit 26 this term despite missing three months of this campaign with injury. At his current scoring rate, even Alan Shearer's record 260-goal haul could be in danger.

DANIEL STURRIDGE (LIVERPOOL) 72

The England striker has shown his finishing skills at Manchester City, Chelsea, Bolton (loan) and Liverpool. But for his well-documented injuries he might well have reached 100 Premier League goals already, but Sturridge is still only 27 and will be in demand if he moves on from Liverpool this summer.

OLIVIER GIROUD (ARSENAL) 69

The 30-year-old has had to play second fiddle to Alexis Sanchez this season, but has still managed 12 Premier League goals. Strong and powerful in the air, he also has a 'scorpion kick' in his locker - as he showed against Crystal Palace earlier this term.

CHRISTIAN BENTEKE (CRYSTAL PALACE) 66

After a sluggish start following his £27million move from Liverpool, Benteke has rediscovered his scoring touch at Palace. The Belgium international has scored seven league goals since Sam Allardyce's mid-season appointment to steer Palace to safety.

THEO WALCOTT (ARSENAL) 65

Regularly used as a winger during his decade at Arsenal, but Walcott has still scored 100 goals for the Gunners. Prefers playing down the middle and, at 28, still has time on his side to reach three figures in the Premier League.
