Tottenham striker who has scored just one league goal since sealing £17M move determined to prove his worth

Tottenham flop Vincent Janssen is determined to prove his worth to the North London side despite a disappointing start, report the Daily Mail.

Janssen was one of the stars of the Eredivisie last time around. The Dutchman found the back of the net 27 times in 31 league appearances. It earned him a move to Tottenham, who, according to the Daily Mail, parted with £17 million to secure his services in the summer transfer window.

However, not all has gone to plan for Janssen at White Hart Lane, he has so far failed to replicate his Az Alkmaar form in a Tottenham shirt. In 18 Premier League appearances, he has had 20 attempts at goal and scored just once – and that was from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw with Leicester.

It has been a difficult few months for Janssen since his arrival in England, but he is not going to wave the white flag anytime soon. The Daily Mail quote Janssen, who appears determined to succeed under Mauricio Pochettino’s stewardship:

“I’m not going to throw the towel in just because things are not going great for the first time in my career. I am jumping to put the Spurs shirt on, but I will have to prove to the coach that I deserve to play.”

Only time will tell if Janssen can turn his Tottenham career around.
