Netherlands' Vincent Janssen in action with England's John Stones
Dutch striker Vincent Janssen intensified the discussion over his future this week by expressing his frustration that Tottenham and AZ Alkmaar have been unable to do a deal.
They appear no closer though, despite AZ making clear they would accept 20 million Euros.

AD Sportwereld reported last week that Tottenham's two offers have been 12.5 million Euros, and then 14 million Euros, which was proposed to be split in installments over three years.
It seems AZ are asking for a reasonable amount for a striker who scored 27 goals last season and is seen as his national side's first choice, yet for some reason Spurs have not offered up the asking price.
This naturally begs questions over whether they have it, or why they are dallying?
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy
AD Sportwereld reported quotes from Janssen yesterday expressing his annoyance that the two clubs have not reached a deal.
This could lead to Spurs getting him on the cheap, and could be all part of Tottenham's masterplan, but wouldn't it be easier to simply pay AZ's asking price?
Fans have been expressing their opinions on social media and have a very clear message for chairman Daniel Levy... pay up!
Janssen wants this move. Poch has obviously been scouting him. Levy just needs to stop being tight and cough up the money. Don't delay it!— Mark Rippon (@Rippon18) June 30, 2016
Wish Levy would just cough up the money AZ Alkmaar want for Janssen, can't bear the anxiety of Arsenal and Wolfsburg sniffing around.— MH (@llorising) June 30, 2016
