Report: Belgian side hoping to sign Tottenham star

Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Belgian side Anderlecht.

According to HLN, the Dutchman is being considered by the Brussels-based side, who are now managed by Vincent Kompany.

Janssen has endured a torrid time since making a £17 million switch to north London in 2016 (BBC Sport).

The 25-year-old has made 42 appearances for the club to date and only scored six times.

He was loaned out to Fenerbahce for the 2017/18 season, and spent the large majority of 2018/19 with the U23s before being recalled to the Spurs first-team by Mauricio Pochettino.

Injuries to Harry Kane allowed him an opportunity to prove his worth, but his struggles continued.

 

Now Anderlecht are looking to offer the once-prolific striker an escape route.

TBR’s view

Janssen’s time at Spurs should be brought to an end.

It simply hasn’t worked out for him in north London, and Tottenham could plough his £34,000-a-week wages (Spotrac) into a new signing.

This is the last chance for Spurs to try and recoup as much of their initial investment as possible, with the player’s contract expiring next summer.

With Schalke also apparently interested (ELF Voetbal), there’s a chance the club can play the two teams off each other and start a bidding war.
