Following an underwhelming transfer window in the summer, it seems Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to cut his losses this summer as Spurs prepare for life away from White Hart Lane.
It’s fair to say that Tottenham have been left disgruntled with their transfer business in the forward department in recent times, and the latest member to join the elite club of striking misfits at White Hart Lane, is Dutch striker Vincent Janssen. Since his £18 million move from AZ Alkmaar back in July , the 22 year old has found the back of the net just five times, costing approximately £3.6 million per goal. Just one of his five goals coming from open play.
The Daily Mirror report that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to accept defeat and allow Mauricio Pochettino to show Vincent Janssen the door at White Hart Lane, with Galatasaray ready to offer £15 Million for the striker.
Janssen, 22, was given the green light to join Turkish giants Galatasaray on loan back in January, but the Dutchman claimed he would stay in North London and fight for his place.
However, the £18 million man [Janssen] hasn’t been Tottenham’s most expensive mistake this season, that would come in the 6’2 frame of Moussa Sissoko. The Frenchman was notorious on Tyneside for failing to fulfil his potential. However, after impressing at the European Championships last summer, Sissoko earned himself a £30 million move to Tottenham on deadline day.
Unfortunately for the Spurs faithful, Sissoko has proved to be an uninspiring addition to Pochettino’s young squad, registering just three assists and failing to find the net for The Lilywhites thus far.
The Daily Mirror also Report that the 26 year old is considered ‘deadwood’ by Mauricio Pochettino, and will be moved on in the summer transfer window, with both Inter and AC Milan looking the most likely destination for the French midfielder.
However, Sissoko was quick to deny these reports on a live stream on his official Instagram page, insisting he is very happy at Spurs.
