Huge Signing for Tottenham or Huge Flop?


Yesterday the Tottenham Hotspurs completed the signing of Vincent Janssen from Az Alkmaar. A huge signing considering that Janssen was the top goal scorer in Eredivisie, scoring 27 goals for AZ Alkmaar. Now, you may be asking yourself: why does that stand out? Is it because 27 goals is huge in itself or is it because that’s more than Harry Kane had last season?

Kane had 25 goals  a mere two less than Janssen. Kane however plays in a much tougher league in the BPL. Kane faced off against Leicester City and Arsenal as opposed to PSV And Ajax. This doesnt seem like a worry to Kane’s position to me. Between 2013 and 2015, Janssen had 29 goals in 69 appearances as opposed to 49 goals in 82 appearances for Kane.

This could either mean an incredible future for the young striker or a bust for the Hotspurs. I believe Janssen will be a flop. Do you feel the same or do you think he will be a great talent? I’m going to leave you with this question go ponder.

Over or Under 20 Goals for Vincent Janssen?
