3 Reasons Why Mauricio Pochettino Should Look To Offload This Struggling Goal Poacher


Tottenham have been in supreme form in the holiday period and have established themselves as a firm contender in the title run in after having defeated Premier League table toppers Chelsea convincingly at the White Hart Lane last weekend.

Harry Kane has been in top form whereas Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are also hitting their strides now, turning the Spurs attack into a formidable machine. However, one person who has struggled to get going for the Lilywhites is summer signing Vincent Janssen.

Having made the move from AZ Alkmaar in the summer for £18.5million, Janssen has found it hard to find his bearings in the Premier League and as a result has struggled to find the net on a regular basis. Here we look at three reasons, why Pochettino should look to replace the Dutchman in the winter transfer window:

Lack of Goals

Janssen joined Tottenham on the back of a stellar campaign with AZ in the Dutch Eredivisie where he had scored 27 goals in 34 appearances. However, it has not been the same story for the talented Dutchman in London.

Having featured in 23 games across all competitions for Tottenham this term, Janssen has scored only three goals. He was regularly involved in the playing XI earlier in the season, during Harry Kane’s enforced absence due to injury, but the 22-year old failed to make the most of the opportunities that he got and has had to play bit-part role ever since. What has been more disappointing is he has failed to score even once from open play for Spurs with all his goals coming from the penalty spot.
