AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen is nearing a long awaited move to White Hart Lane according to reports from ESPN.
Last seasons Eredivisie top scorer with 27 goals, the 22-year-old has been pushing for a move to Spurs over the past few weeks and claimed his current club had denied him a ‘dream move’ having turned down a €16 million bid from the North London club for his services.
It now appears though as if Janssen is set for the exit with Tottenham having met the new £16 million asking price put on the forwards by AZ, with reports suggesting the Dutchman has already travelled to Spurs training ground to discuss personal terms with the club.
Tottenham have been keen on bringing a new striker to White Hart Lane since the beginning of the transfers window as competition for club talisman Harry Kane – who was relied on far too heavily at times last season as the only capable out-and-out striker in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
Janssen is certainly that too, and will provide Kane with either a healthy battle or even support up-front next season as Spurs look to once again challenge for the title.
But business is not finished, and the Lilywhites could still use another striker to bolster their attacking options.
Here are 3 forwards that Spurs should look to bring to the Lane alongside Janssen this summer ….Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
