According to a report in Turkish daily, TRT Spor, Fenerbahce are close to agreeing on a deal to take Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen back to Turkey.

The 24-year-old striker missed most of last season with a foot injury and made just three appearances from the bench for Spurs all season after being recalled by Mauricio Pochettino into the first team fold.

The Dutchman spent the second half of the 17/18 season on loan at Fenerbahçe, where he scored 5 goals in 18 appearances. With Janssen seemingly having no future at Tottenham, the club will look to sell him permanently this summer, and it is claimed that Fenerbahce will return for the striker’s services.

Former Spurs striker Roberto Soldado has left the Turkish giants this summer after spending two full seasons at the Şukru Saracoglu Stadium.

The Spaniard scored 19 goals in 59 appearances for the club, and it is claimed that Fenerbahce have identified Janssen as his replacement.

For the past 3 seasons, the Dutch international has struggled to recreate the same form that saw him finish top of the scoring charts in the Eredivisie back in 15/16.

Spurs Web Opinion

It’s unfortunate that it never worked out at the club for Vincent Janssen as he looked to be a top prospect when the club signed him three years ago. Tottenham will prefer to sell him on a permanent basis rather than sending him out on another loan.
