Vincent Janssen is on the verge of leaving Tottenham – with the Dutchman set to sign for Mexican side Monterry.
According to Football.London, the 25-year-old striker is booked in for a medical with the 2019 CONCACAF Champions League winners on Monday after he was left out of Spurs’ travelling squad to Asia for their pre-season tour of Singapore and China this week.
Janssen signed for Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in the summer of 2016 for £17m, but struggled to nail down a starting place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side and after scoring just six goals in 38 appearances that season – four of those coming from the penalty spot – he was loaned out to Fenerbache for the 2017/2018 campaign.
The striker’s fortunes didn’t change in Turkey, where he would net just six more in 18 more games and a foot injury – which led to him having surgery – meant he missed out on the opportunity to leave Spurs last summer and although he made three substitute appearances towards the back end of last season when Harry Kane was out with an ankle problem, he was never thought to be in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans moving forward and his move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium won’t come as a surprise to many.
