AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen is set to join Premier League club Tottenham this week.
The Dutch striker is reported to have had a medical during the weekend and may complete his move to the London club later during the week.
The player who is currently 22-years old is set to reinforce Tottenham’s attack that has been too reliant on Harry Kane last season. It is believed that the price will amount to around £17m. Vincent Janssen was a prolific player last season where he managed 22 goals in the Dutch league. Tottenham will be hoping that he could replicate the same form that he showed in Netherlands in the Premier League.
It is believed that Vincent Janssen had started discussions with Tottenham since last month as he was given permission by AZ Alkmaar to discuss with the Premier League. The striker already visited Tottenham training ground and met with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino. It is also reported that they have also agreed on terms, and it is only a matter of days that the deal will be made official.
It is believed that Vincent Janssen has already told his AZ Alkmaar teammates that he will be leaving the club and that he will not be training with the club anymore. The transfer will be the biggest in the history of AZ Alkmaar, and they will want to make good use of the money. Indeed Janssen was an instrumental player for them last season and they will need to find a replacement. His 22 goals in the league were important in last year’s campaign, and AZ Alkmaar will want to ensure that they get a quality striker to take his place.
Janssen said that it is a pleasure to sign for Spurs and that he cannot wait to get started for his new club.
