– Janssen is 5 foot 10 inches tall.
– Janssen is the son of the former world champion swimmer and Dutch sportswoman of the year, Annemarie Verstappen.
– Vincent has been capped for the Netherlands all the way from the under 15 side to the senior side.

This morning Sky Sports News announced that Spurs had held talks with last seasons Eredivisie top scorer Vincent Janssen, after his club Az Alkmaar gave him permission to speak to Spurs according to Sky sources. The 21 year old Netherlands international netted 27 goals in 34 games for AZ Alkmaar last season, and Janssen was watched play last Saturday against Austria in an international by our manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Style of play: Janssen is one of Hollands hottest young talents and with his technique it’s not hard to see why. One of Janssen’s best attributes is his ability to shoot with both feet equally which is something even some top strikers lack. Furthermore, Janssen’s technique and instinctive nature is phenomenal, as to is his finishing with his clinical ability making him a deadly force up front. In addition the Dutchman possesses great balance and strength which helps to demonstrate his hold up play. Moreover, it is Janssen’s movement that is one of the Dutchman’s finest attributes, with Janssen often managing to find himself in space to score a goal. In many ways the Dutchman’s attributes are similar to those of our star striker Harry Kane which undoubtedly leaves me in great confidence that Janssen has the potential to become a star for the Lillywhites, if he is to sign.
When will the deal happen?: Taking into consideration Janssen is now off until pre season due to the Netherlands not being involved in Euro 2016, Spurs and AZ Alkmaar can negotiate a deal at their own leisure as well as discussing personal terms with Janssen. However, I would predict that Janssen could be a Spurs player by the end of the week judging by Spurs already being in discussions with the 21 year old. However, ultimately we shall have to see whether things are sorted out in a speedy fashion. Below is a video which i feel showcases the exceptionally talented young Dutchman, in action for both AZ Alkmaar and the Dutch national side over the course of last season. I feel as if Janssen is just the sort of player we need at Spurs ahead of next season and I am hopeful that Spurs can get a deal done for him in the near future.
