Spurs: Finally set to offload flop striker

Spurs: Finally set to offload flop striker - Latest News

Spurs are set to finally rid themselves of flop striker Vincent Janssen, with a move to Mexican side Monterrey in the offing.

According to Football.London, the Dutch striker is set to make the move across the Atlantic to pastures new, following a miserable spell with the Londoners in which he has failed to find any sort of goalscoring form under Mauricio Pochettino.

Janssen has endured a terrible time of things since arriving in England from AZ Alkmaar, and has only hit the back of the net twice for Spurs since making the move to the Premier League back in 2016.

Spurs are looking to improve this summer now their new stadium is fully built and operational, and have already splashed the cash on midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who has arrived at the club in a club-record deal.

However, it also looks like manager Mauricio Pochettino could look to recoup some money and wages, and letting Janssen go is a no-brainer for the Spurs gaffer if he needs to supplement summer signings by getting rid of other members of his squad.

Janssen looked to be on his way out of the club a couple of seasons ago when a permanent move to Fenerbahce seemed to be in the offing. However, an injury curtailed his progress there and reportedly put the Turkish giants off from turning his loan deal into a long-term one (InternetSpor via HITC), and now in the final year of his contract, the Dutch striker could look to take the chance with Monterrey with both hands.

Monterrey will be getting themselves a striker who is not shot shy, with Janssen averaging just shy of three shots on goal per game over the course of his career (as per WhoScored).

Unfortunately, though, it has just not worked out for him in north London, with the Netherlands international looking nothing like the centre-forward who scored 27 Eredivisie goals in his last season at AZ.

Spurs fans, what do you think? Glad to be finally seeing the back of Janssen? Let us know your thoughts!
