Tottenham could be set to take a £14.5 million hit this summer

Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen has emerged as an option for Real Betis this summer.

Despite having been brought back into the picture towards the end of the season by Mauricio Pochettino, the Dutchman is still understood to be surplus to requirements.

The 24-year-old has struggled since signing for the club in 2016 and was sent out on loan to Fenerbahce last term.

In 2018/19 he has mainly been training with the U23s, until an injury to Harry Kane saw Pochettino start selecting him for his first-team again.

According to Estadio Deportivo, Betis are eyeing Janssen for around €3 million (£2.5 million).


Janssen signed for Spurs for £17 million from AZ Alkmaar according to BBC Sport, meaning Daniel Levy could potentially be making a £14.5 million loss.

TBR’s view

Tottenham selling Janssen for somewhere around that figure would certainly leave egg on Levy’s face.

The long-serving chairman is usually so shrewd in the transfer market and has far more hits than misses to his name.

Janssen has been so poor that he has made his relatively modest transfer fee look expensive.

His time at the club could well come to an end this summer, and his next transfer fee really could emphasise just what a blunder Levy made three years ago.
