Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to make any signings in this January window, which has led to a lot of fans calling for one man who’s already there to be utilised in Vincent Janssen. Spurs fans want to give him another chance, but the Dutchman’s set to hold talks with Mauricio Pochettino this month over hit future, according to The Daily Mail.

On Monday, the striker featured in the Premier League 2 in Tottenham’s U23 side as they drew 1-1 with Liverpool’s U23s. However, with the striker lacking match fitness having just recovered from a foot injury, the fans may have got their hopes up for nothing as Pochettino is just prepping the striker to be let go. As far as the Lilywhites are concerned, though, he’d be better off getting another chance.
The only time that Janssen was given a shot was during the 2016/17 season where he scored just six goals in 38 appearances for the club. That total looks quote bad, and it is, but when you consider he was just 22-years-old and playing in his first season in the Premier League with an £18 million price tag on his head having just signed for Tottenham, it’s easy to understand why he failed to hit the mark, and that’s why the fans want to give him another go.

Has to give him another chance!

Poch gives him another chance to save his Spurs career … The lad scores 10-12 goals as backup to H … Then for an encore walks on water while turning water into wine .. all jokes aside .. it won't hurt to bring him in from the cold … It might be the making of him

He got a good work rate and have the desire to put the ball behind the net , maybe last season was unlucky for him , maybe give him chances like poch does to sissoko ? Who knows he could turn his career 360°

Still feel for him. He just started to look ok n get some confidence then Poch shipped him out

If he can get a tune out of Sissoko…

On my football manager, he is banging them in. So on that basis id say give him another go.

He should be given a chance, a full chance not just brought on for the last few minutes of games, Sissoko was given the chance and that worked wonders

Give him another chance

I still think he can do a job. He just never looked fit! Lacked pace, sharpness.

The Lilywhites would love to chance it on Janssen and they all hope he can complete a Moussa Sissoko-style U-turn at the club.
