Vincent Janssen will not be sold by Tottenham this summer as Mauricio Pochettino wants to give the striker another season to prove himself, according to The Daily Mail.

Spurs signed Janssen from AZ Alkmaar for around £18 million last summer, but the Dutchman endured a difficult first season in England.

He scored just twice in the Premier League and was only really given the chance to start when Harry Kane was injured.

But towards the end of the season, Janssen’s performances improved and it looked like he was beginning to settle in to the Premier League.

His lack of overall impact, however, has led to rumours of a potential exit this summer.

But the Mail claims Pochettino is willing to give the 23-year-old another campaign to prove his credentials at Tottenham.

Janssen might turn out to be a decent striker, but it’s difficult to see him getting much football next season unless Kane struggles with injuries again.

  1. Very wise move – He will come good. (as will Sissoko) . Too much Knee jerk reaction from the boo birds. Once a player has been acquired; there is seldom an upside to selling at a loss.

  2. There has been no reason at all to sell Janssen who has usually played well when selected to play for Spurs. As he got over the frustrations he faced in the first half of last season, he steadily improved and got more games. Always cheered on and off the pitch by Spurs supporters who recognise effort and commitment in a player, and in addition to that he has scored some important goals.
