Vincent Janssen has a year left on his contract at Tottenham Hotspur, but their idea is to offload him in the summer transfer window.
Spurs are in Asia for their preseason tour and the Dutchman was one of the players who left out of the travelling squad.
The Champions League runners-up confirmed on their official website the striker was left behind because he was “granted additional time off in order to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs”.
Last month, we carried a report from Het Laatste Nieuws, who stated Anderlecht have set their sights on the 25-year-old.
The Jupiler Pro League side try to sign the player in January, but he decided to continue with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Voetbalkrant.com now brings the latest update as they claim Janssen is a ‘concrete’ target for Vincent Kompany’s side.
A few days ago, Anderlecht chiefs Michael Verschueren and Frank Arnesen said the frontman will not arrive immediately. They are hoping Janssen’s asking price would drop in the coming weeks so the Belgian side can sign him on a lower fee.
Will Spurs lower their demands? Time should tell.
