AZ Alkmaar star Vincent Janssen has expressed his frustration in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, after the Eredivsie club failed to agree a fee with Tottenham.
The 22-year-old has been strongly linked to Tottenham, and reportedly had already visited White Hart Lane to hold discussion.
Tottenham had three bids rejected for Janssen, and reports now suggest a bid of €17m has also been rejected.
“AZ have a much higher amount in mind. They even refuse to mention the price for which I could be sold. I find that frustrating because it comes down to me.
“I’ve asked Max Huiberts ( AZ’s technical director) many times why he did not mention the required transfer fee, but he did not know himself. He only said that I’m more valuable than the money offered so far,” Janssen told De Telegraaf.
De Telegraaf reckon AZ Alkmaar are holding out for €20m, but the player now seems to be worried about the fact that Tottenham will walk away from any possible deal.
Janssen says he is hoping AZ will negotiate a deal with Tottenham, and if they don’t then it will be a big disappointment for him to miss out on his ‘dream transfer’ to the North London club.
He added: “I trust AZ will talk to Spurs. If AZ do not, despite the offered amount, and Spurs drop out, then that is a blow to me.
“I’m not one to create war quickly, but how I react, I do not know. I assume that AZ realises that a transfer for everyone is the best.
“AZ are blocking my dream transfer and that makes me incredibly disappointed.”
De Telegraaf say AZ’s techincal director, Max Huiberts, was not available to comment.
