Tottenham have struggled to improve their striking options for a few years now. Reliant on Harry Kane, the Lilywhites still require a back-up for the talented Englishman, yet nobody they’ve signed as of late has been able to fit the bill.
One man that was given the job of vying for a starting spot with Kane was Vincent Janssen. He moved from the Netherlands with a big reputation for goalscoring, and he seemed like a good fit.
However, in reality, he just didn’t work out. He struggled to make an impact in north London, and he quickly joined a long list of unsuccessful attacking signings.
Is there scope for a return, though? He has struggled with injuries this season, but a recent report from the Daily Mail intimated that there’s still scope for him to force his way back into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans. It’s a longshot, of course, but the door is, if nothing else, ever so slightly ajar.
Many Tottenham fans, it seems, would like to capitalise on the prospect, too. We recently polled Spurs fans on whether they’d like to see Janssen get another chance, and a whopping 85% of those polled have revealed that they would like to see more of the Dutchman.
Of course, Janssen clearly has talent, and that hasn’t dissipated despite a poor couple of years. Tottenham have always been eager to save money, and in Janssen, they could find the perfect solution – and he would be completely free.
