Forget Vincent Janssen: Here Are 3 Alternatives That Tottenham Should Look To Sign Including This Premier League Star

Vincent Janssen

Tottenham seem to be in the running to sign the Eredivisie’s top scorer from last season, AZ Alkmaar’s Vincent Janssen. The 22-year-old had an incredible season for the Dutch side as he scored 31 goals in 49 games in all competitions, not a bad return for the striker.

Tottenham would not have to pay a lot of money to sign the star but the Dutchman recently stated that he would be willing to move to another club in case the Tottenham deal does not take off.

Spurs too should have a few alternatives up their sleeves as the experience of trying to sign someone like Saido Berahino should have given them an idea of what can happen in the transfer window.

We look ahead to a lot of work which should be done by the scouting network and list out three alternatives to Vincent Janssen.

Islam Slimani

Not as young as the Dutch striker, Islam Slimani has been making a lot of news in the Portuguese league having scored 31 goals in 44 games for Sporting Lisbon.

The 27-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in the world of football and a number of clubs are vying for his signature. Slimani is a great striker to have and a partnership of Harry Kane with the Algerian would be lethal for Tottenham.

The only issue could be the fact that the Algerian hasn’t played at the highest level and might be a little suspect to the rigours of the Premier League but as with any transfer, there is always some risk involved and hopefully it can work out for Tottenham.

Romelu Lukaku

The Belgian has been one of the best strikers in the Premier League and his assentation that he would move away to a Champions League club should send Tottenham into “sign him up” mode.

The 23-year-old could be the perfect signing for Spurs to be honest. He knows the Premier League well, has adjusted to it and can play as the lone striker or can even partner up to create a lethal striker force.

Quick, strong and with an eye for goal, Lukaku might be the most expensive signing amongst the trio of players listed, but he is the best bet for any Premier League side at the moment.

Sebastien Haller

Another player making waves in the Eredivisie, Sebastien Haller has also been courted by many of the top sides in Europe and he has been called as the next Thierry Henry, not a bad player to be compared to.

The 21-year-old might be a year younger than Janssen but he too has a decent enough record in front of goal and in two seasons for FC Utrecht, he has scored 35 goals in 57 games out of which 24 of them came in the last season.

The French player could be a perfect fit for Tottenham as he is young and can be a great option off the bench.
