Spurs target - 15 goals with his left foot 10 with his right


West ham have shown an interest in Vincent Janssen but he has made it known that he prefers to join the Hammers have had to look elsewhere.

In Holland he is now seen as the man to take over from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Robin van Persie and the point of the Dutch attack. In a year his stature may well be far more significant than it is now so this window may be the window he needs to be snapped up.

Sharp, lethal, full of energy and displaying intelligent movement, Janssen’s rapid development over the season was integral to AZ’s transformation from bottom half side in December, to a third-place finish.

Janssen didn't score in the first seven Eredivisie games. He then scored two against FC Twente and one against SC Canbuur. He didn't score in the next two games although he did have one assist. He then scored against Vitesse and two against SC Heerenveen plus an assist. He didn't score for another two games before providing an assist and a further game, making it four on the trot, that he didn't score.

That took him until the end of 2015 so his total was 17 games played, 6 goals (scored in 4 games) with 3 assists. He picked up 1 yellow card.

In 2016 he started with a goal against Roda JC, three against Feyenoord and two against SC Cambuur. He then didn't score in the next game and then went on a scoring run with goals in successive games against Vitesse, Heracles Almelo, FC Groningen, Ajax, SBV Excelsior (plus an assist), two against Willem II and FC Twente. A game he didn't score in was followed by a goal against SC Heerenveen and four against PEC Zwolle (plus an assist), one more game he didn't score in then goals in the final two  games against De Graafschap and FC Utrecht.

His 2016 total was 17 games played 21 goals (scored in 14 games) with 2 assists. He picked up 2 yellow cards.

The two halves of the season were rather different and you can see how important he was for their finishing position.
With a sound technique, his movement and positioning were impressive and as he can use both feet, stopping him proved rather difficult. He scored 15 Eredivisie goals with his left foot and 10 with his right foot.

Holland manager Danny Blind was impressed and had to take note of his scoring, which he continued at international level.
“He shows no nerves. He made such an impressive full debut with a goal and an assist. Vincent is a really cool guy who gives his all. If you can also be as decisive in the final result, that is fantastic for him and for the team.”
AZ coach John van den Brom has seem him improve rapidly and he has potential to improve further given his lack of top class football.

“He is getting better, more complete and will always score more. He’s become stronger, has gained much more control in the penalty area and is much calmer. He’s become almost invaluable to us.”

Vincent Janssen accepts that he had improved and has made it clear recently he wants to take the next step in his career.
“I’ve really become a target man for the team. My whole game has improved.”
Let's hope this one gets over the line quickly, if only for the sanity of a few Spurs fans who want something to moan about.
