Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen who is on loan with Fenerbahce has opened up about his future with the Turkish club and his career goals to date. The Dutch striker has spoken to the Turkish media outlet A Spor about his move to Fenerbahce and the subsequent revival of his career.

Janssen moved to the Turkish side on loan this summer and has taken to life in Super Lig with ease, quite unlike his troubles in the Premier League. The 23-year-old scored his 3rd goal of the season for his new side last week and was quick to point out his happiness in moving to Istanbul.

When quizzed about his move from Tottenham and his subsequent rise to fame at Fener, Janssen said:

“I was 100% behind my choice, that was a goal for me and I was very happy I could do it so quick.”

The Dutch forward did not waste time in settling down in Istanbul after a September move, as he notched up 2 goals in the opening month. There were sharp glances of admiration from North London, with a section of fans even urging him to come back.

However, his form has nosedived soon after and he went several weeks without scoring. His third goal of the season which was a long time coming was netted this week and Janssen was happy that the mini-drought has ended.

There is a school of thought that the fans at the Turkish club were completely behind him even during his lean phase, unlike his time at the North London club which was mired in questions about his efficiency. I do not completely adhere to that concept but that is a discussion that can rumble on!

Janssen has set his mind on having a good season with Fenerbahce before deciding on his future move.

“We’ll see, for me now it is important to have a good season with Fenerbahce, that’s the only aim right now and after that I’ll look towards what’s going to happen.”

That is a sensible thought from the player who has to make sure he gets back into scoring mode and probably win the approval of Mauricio Pochettino.

On that note, when quizzed about his future at White Hart Lane, the Dutchman indicated that he has his mind set on Fenerbahce for the moment but that he’s completely aware of what he wants to do.

“I have my thoughts about this of course, but for now I think it’s best to focus on what is happening right now. When we get close to the end of the season we’ll see what’s going to happen but it’s for sure that I really enjoy my time at Fenerbahce.”

I don’t think anyone at Tottenham would be looking at taking him back soon while Fenerbahce may not be able to cough up the amount Daniel Levy would want. There could be another loan deal for him, but we will have to see.

Do you want Janssen back at Tottenham?

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash



Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

26-year-old Tottenham star finds himself on Juventus’ radar for the January window



Dele Alli Christian Eriksen

Dele Alli & Christian Eriksen

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

“Helped turn the game”, “Game changer” – Some Tottenham fans claims this star transformed England after coming on



Dele Alli Tottenham

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
