Schalke 04 are interested in signing Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen on loan in January, according to reports in Germany.

Janssen hasn’t played a minute of football for Spurs this season after being left out of their Premier League and Champions League squads.

The Dutchman spent last season on loan at Turkish club Fenerbahce, where he scored five goals in 17 appearances across all competitions.

He was expected to leave Spurs in the summer either on loan again or permanently, but foot surgery saw him stay put.

However, he is clearly surplus to requirements and an exit – either in January or next summer – is inevitable.

According to German outlet Bild (via Sport Witness), Schalke are keen to take Janssen on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old scored six times in his debut season for Tottenham, which is as many as Fernando Llorente has managed for the Londoners since arriving in the summer of 2017.

Both strikers have failed to provide adequate cover and competition for Harry Kane, and Llorente is also rumoured to be on the move with Athletic Bilbao his likely destination.




  1. instead of sending him to Schalke on loan

    send him on 2 years loan deal to his former club where he was in top form before coming to Tottenham.. so that he plays 2 years on loan his value and price increases..if he scores 20 goals in two seasons including ucl then his price will be more than 70 million, so that Tottenham can ask more than 70 million.. if any club come for buying him.. sell him for a big money or swap players.. think wisely..

  2. Last comment is daft. 2 year loan would mean his contract is up, and he would leave on a free. Only benefit would be we don’t pay his wages for 2 years, which would be the case if we sold him anyway….sell him. Take sub 10 million and free up a place in the squad. Think wisely 😉
