Tottenham target to snub Premier League rivals as he only wants to join Mauricio Pochettino’s side

AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen has reportedly again shown a desire to join Tottenham Hotspur by turning down a move to West Ham United.

The Dutch forward is in demand this summer after starring in the Eredivisie last season, while he scored 32 goals and provided seven assists in 49 appearances in all competitions.

In turn, it is no surprise to see top clubs from Europe monitoring his situation, as Telegraaf have reported that West Ham are the latest club to try and snatch him from the grasp of Spurs.

From AZ’s perspective, the Dutch media outlet claim that they could now be ready to sell as they have identified Fred Friday as the successor to Janssen in their starting line-up.

It is added in the report that the Dutch international has already made it clear that he believes the club are being unreasonable for not accepting a €17m bid from Spurs, and has insisted that he wants to start a new adventure in the Premier League at White Hart Lane.

Telegraaf add that PSG have already tried and failed to convince him otherwise, and the Hammers have now been added to the list too as he continues to push for Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino guided the club to a third-place finish in the Premier League last season, but was heavily reliant on Harry Kane to score goals.

The England international bagged 25 league goals in the campaign, but with additional quality and depth around him, it will likely make Spurs a much more dangerous outfit.

Whether they can complete the signing of Janssen remains to be seen, but Telegraaf have again reiterated what his intentions are this summer.
