Anderlecht recently appointed Frank Arnesen as their sporting director, and Fred Rutten is the club’s new manager.
Het Belang van Limburg report the next thing for the Belgian side to sort out is new players, and they’re looking for an attacking addition.
Vincent Janssen, Ibrahim Afellay and Jürgen Locadia have all been linked, but HBVL believe Anderlecht could have an advantage signing the Tottenham player.
It’s explained that fit again Janssen has also been linked to Celtic for a January move, but Arnesen’s ‘good contacts’ at Spurs could swing things the way of Anderlecht.
Celtic interest doesn’t seem to have a lot behind it, especially after the club just signed Timothy Weah on loan from PSG.
Therefore, Arnesen’s route to Janssen may not be blocked with a lot of competition and any advantage he has from his past with the club may not actually be needed.
Unless Mauricio Pochettino sees a meaningful role for the striker for the rest of the season, a loan move to Anderlecht doesn’t seem a bad idea.
