Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven are plotting a move to bring Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen back to the Netherlands, according to Eindhoven Dagblad.
Janssen spent last season on loan at Fenerbahce and scored 5 goals from 17 games in all competitions after failing to light up White Hart Lane when he moved to the Premier League a couple of years ago.
The report claims that Janssen would be a replacement for fellow Dutch striker Luuk de Jong. Janssen scored just 6 goals for us in his debut season after playing 35 games and was shipped off to Turkey.
The 23-year-old scored 31 times in 49 games for AZ Alkmaar before he joined Spurs but things just did not go right for him in the Premier League.
While selling Janssen does seem like a probability, given that we already have Fernando Llorente in the side as cover for Harry Kane, the price point for the 23-year-old could be an issue.
We signed Janssen for a fee of £17m and it will be difficult to recoup that kind of money from the Dutch side, as Janssen has not scored too many goals and has looked off-colour a number of times.
The youngster still has time on his side and a move back to the Netherlands could be the right step in his career at the moment. The Dutch striker might just find his touch back in his native country and we might even cut our losses and let him go for whatever amount possible.
Janssen failing at Tottenham was not what many would have expected when he joined the club but sometimes, transfers don’t work out in football.
