Fenerbahce are set to end their interest in signing Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen on loan for another season, according to reports in Turkey.

Janssen spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Fenerbahce after enduring a difficult first season in England with Spurs.

The Dutchman scored just six goals in all competitions in 2016/17, finding the net only twice in the Premier League.

At Fenerbahce, Janssen scored five goals in 17 appearances. Injuries contributed to his lack of game time and it is believed Fenerbahce were impressed by his performances when he was able to play.

As a result, the Super Lig club have moved for the 24-year-old again this summer. However, Turkish outlet Milliyet (via claims the deal is set to fall through.

Fenerbahce technical director Phillipe Cocu is apparently unconvinced by Janssen and wants the club to target an alternative striker.

Janssen has not travelled with the Tottenham squad for their pre-season tour of the US as he has been deemed surplus to requirements by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

But it seems the former AZ Alkmaar striker may be forced to stick around for the coming campaign if Fenerbahce pull out of a deal.
