According to a recent report by Estadio Deportivo, Tottenham Hotspur forward Vincent Janssen is on Real Betis’ radar this summer as they try to land the Dutch forward for just €3m. Football.London has revealed that Mauricio Pochettino is willing to consider parting ways with Janssen in this offseason as the striker has just over a year left on his current contract at White Hart Lane. Thus, it would be beneficial for Spurs to let him go at the end of this campaign rather than lose him for free in the summer of 2020.
Jannsen’s Early Career and Recent Frustrations
Janssen came through the youth ranks of Feyenoord before moving on to play for AZ Alkmaar back in 2015. His performances for the Eredivisie outfit caught the eyes of the Tottenham chiefs who decided to give him a shot in the summer of 2016. The Dutch striker’s career in England has been plagued with injuries which have derailed his career in English football.
The 24-year-old had to endure another frustrating campaign at the North London club as he made just three appearances for Pochettino’s side this term without finding the back of the net.
Hence, a change in scenery could help the Spurs frontman reignite his career in Europe. Betis might be an ideal destination for Janssen as he would be guaranteed more game time on the pitch. Furthermore, his playing style might be better suited for the La Liga which is why Spurs should consider letting him go in the coming months.
What Does Janssen Offer On The Pitch?
When playing with confidence on the pitch, Janssen can be a lethal centre-forward inside the opposition penalty box. However, he lacks the consistency required to prove his worth in the Premier League. However, at the tender age of 24, he has already managed to earn 17 international caps for the Netherlands and has scored seven goals for his country thus far.
Should Spurs Part Ways With The Dutch Striker?
Janssen’s potential departure won’t affect the Tottenham first-team at all as he is currently on the fringes of Pochettino’s squad. Thus, it might be best for all parties if he ends up making a switch away from the new White Hart Lane during this upcoming transfer window.
Spurs would be better of letting him leave so that they can use the money generated from Janssen’s potential sale to bring in a more suitable replacement who can be a capable back-up for Harry Kane next season.
