Tottenham Hotspur outcast Vincent Janssen is set to become a Monterrey player in the next 24 hours.
As reported by Football.London, the Dutchman is booked in for a medical in Mexico today ahead of a shock move to the Nuevo Leon side.
It comes after a torrid time since joining Tottenham Hotspur, but the striker can expect a warm welcome.
That is according to Monterrey’s star playmaker Maximilliano Meza. Despite no official deal being done, the midfielder has commented on Janssen’s imminent arrival. As reported by Medio Tiempo, the 26-year-old Argentina international is very happy that Janssen is on his way to join Rayados.
“Whenever a player comes to collaborate, who can help us, he will be welcome.
“So he will meet an incredible group. A group of good people, a very competitive team.
“So I think he will feel comfortable and hopefully he can help us with whatever he wants most.”
Janssen arrived at Tottenham with plenty of promise. As reported by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur spent £18.6 million to bring Janssen to the club from AZ Alkmaar in 2016.
It came amid a hot streak from the player who had notched 32 goals in one season and was the starting striker for the Netherlands.
But he failed to replicate such form at Tottenham. His lack of pace was a major issue and injuries soon compounded his misery.
However, it seems the players at Monterrey are ready to welcome Janssen with open arms. Hopefully, he can find some joy at the Estadio BBVA.
