Burnley are considering a move for Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen, according to the Daily Mail.

Earlier this week, reports emerged suggesting Spurs are willing to take a financial hit on Janssen, who arrived from AZ Alkmaar for £17 million in the summer of 2016.

Depending on who you believe, Tottenham are looking for between £12m-15m for the Dutchman.

And the Mail claims Burnley could be set to stump up £15m by the end of the month.

Mauricio Pochettino has said Janssen is not in his plans as the 24-year-old remains in the dark despite Spurs’ current striker crisis.

Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli are all currently unavailable, and Fernando Llorente struggled to lead the line in Sunday’s victory over Fulham.

Regardless, there seems to be no way back in for Janssen and an exit in the current transfer window looks extremely likely.

Burnley are struggling for goals at the moment so it makes sense they would be interested.

Janssen’s valuation is relatively cheap in today’s market, even for a player who has been low on confidence for some time.
