The January transfer window came and went by and now the teams will get started on their plans for the upcoming window in the summer of 2017. Not many clubs like to invest heavily in the winter period, possibly because of the lack of time that can be afforded to the new signing to bed in and hence prefer the July transfer window which gives the incoming players proper time to get used to conditions, match practice from the pre-season. And when some players come in, some have to depart to make way.
There wasn’t much happening around the White Hart Lane in the recently concluded window, but major signings will be expected in the summer as Tottenham go about establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with in Europe. And for that to happen, funds need to be generated which would mean some players will be facing the axe come July.
Here are three players, who should be the ones to depart from the North London in the upcoming transfer window:
The summer signing has found it tough going in the English top-flight. Janssen has looked out of depth every time he has taken the field for Tottenham this season and has failed to inspire confidence among the fans. In his 27 appearances for Tottenham this season, Janssen has only scored four times. And shockingly, none of these goals have come from open play.
The Dutchman has netted all of his four strikes from the penalty spot. He looks utterly clueless and deprived of confidence on the field and has failed miserably to adapt to the way Tottenham play under Pochettino. He did get a regular run in the team when Harry Kane was out injured, but Janssen failed to make the most of it and has been playing bit-part role ever since. Given his run and his unsuitability and failure to adapt to the rigours of the English football, Janssen should be sold by Spurs in the summer.
