How Vincent Janssen could be the secret to a dream Spurs signing

Tottenham Hotspur chose not to dip their toes into the transfer market in the summer, but if any speculation is to be believed, they still have their eyes on a few players.

Transfer rumours should always be taken with a pinch of salt, but Spurs would surely be foolish not to invest in their team come January, especially considering they are only two points off the lead in the Prem.

Not to mention the fact that Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen, and Toby Alderweireld have all entered their final year of contract, with Eriksen in his final two.

Spurs have been linked with Ajax duo Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs De Ligt for the past month, with Barcelona also said to be interested.

Spanish publication Sport suggest Tottenham want to pay £44m for de Jong, despite Ajax’s £67m price tag.

The secret to Tottenham’s success could be club outcast Vincent Janssen.

Janssen scored 27 goals in his last season in Holland, and Ajax were apparently interested in signing him, but Janssen claims via Volkskrant ‘Ajax were never going to pay 20 million Euros’.

Could Janssen prove to be a sweetener in a big deal between the two clubs?
