There were high hopes when Tottenham Hotspur signed Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar for £17m (BBC) on a four-year deal in 2016.
However, to say that things haven’t worked out for the Dutchman at Spurs would be an understatement.
He was brought in by Mauricio Pochettino to try and lift some of the goalscoring burden off the shoulders of Harry Kane, but instead has instead become another forward who has failed to do so, joining the likes of Roberto Soldado and Fernando Llorente.
He has become somewhat of a forgotten man, but is still at Spurs and has not been registered for either the club’s Premier League or Champions League squads and is sidelined after undergoing foot surgery in the summer.
Janssen spent last season on loan at Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and many had expected him to depart last summer before he was ruled out of action.
His agent, Laros stopped short of confirming that the striker will leave the club by instead insisting that the striker is focusing on his recovery.
He told ESPN: “We don’t know what will happen. His focus is first to get 100 percent fit and then we will see what happens.
“There’s not much more to do right now, he wants to be fit and play but we will see.”
