Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen may have a surprise bidder for his services, according to reports in Mexico. It seems that Monterrey are considering a move for the Tottenham outcast.
The news was initially reported by ESPN journalist John Sutcliffe on Twitter.

The media in Mexico have now explored the potential deal.
As reported by MSN, there is currently no offer for the player but Monterrey have an interest in the Dutchman.
It comes after an attempt to sign Janssen’s compatriot Luuk De Jong was unsuccessful. The PSV striker eventually joined Sevilla in a deal reported by Eindhovens Dagblad to be worth €15 million (£13.4 million).
The Dutchman has struggled with form and fitness since signing for Tottenham and appears to have no long-term future at the club.
A move to Mexico would certainly be a novelty. It is rare for European strikers to make the switch to Central America. However, French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has shown in his four years at Tigres UANL it can be a fruitful experience.
It will be interesting to see if Rayados do follow up their interest in the Dutchman this summer.
