According to reports from The Daily Mail, up to three Premier League sides are interested in signing 23 year old Dutch forward Vincent Janssen before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Playing second fiddle to Harry Kane, Janssen found game-time hard to come by in his debut season in England last year, making just 7 Premier League starts for Spurs, despite numerous lengthy injuries to Kane.

Janssen who signed for Spurs for £17 million, with his limited minutes on the pitch, scored 6 goals, just 2 of those however from open play with the other 4 coming from the penalty spot, in all competitions.

It is understood that Premier League trio Stoke City, West Brom and Crystal Palace are all interested in boosting their attacking options this Summer with a move for the backup striker.

24 year old Austrian defender Kevin Wimmer has already jumped ship to Stoke, therefore the possibility to join up with a former team-mate could attract the Dutchman to the Britannia Stadium too.

However earlier in the month, The Daily Mail also suggested that German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach were interested in the forward, while (the much less reputable) HITC Sport have suggested Swansea may yet hijack any potential deals.

Although interest in Janssen is seemingly very high, with other European outlets claiming that Lazio and Marseille are also considering a move, it is unlikely Spurs will sell the 2016 Summer signing, given his talent and youthfulness.

What figure would you accept for Janssen? Or would you refuse to sell?
