Arsenal fans react on Twitter as Tottenham announce Vincent Janssen, direct anger at Arsene Wenger

Vincent Janssen scores the first goal for the Netherlands from the penalty spot

Tottenham Hotspur announced the signing of a striker, and Arsenal fans are not happy in light of their own failures to do so.

Tottenham Hotspur have given themselves a major edge for next season after signing Vincent Janssen, the 2015/16 Eredivisie top scorer.

The Dutch international is an exciting addition and finally answers the big question the club were facing regarding a lack of options to compete with Harry Kane.

Janssen's price tag, under £25 million, is a good fee in a market which is more over inflated than ever, with Manchester United linked with a £100 million move for midfielder Paul Pogba.

An astute deal for Tottenham, looks on the other hand as a missed opportunity for rivals Arsenal, who The Telegraph reported in May was a transfer target for the Gunners.

It had been claimed Arsenal were 'regularly scouting' the 22-year-old, and while they may have seen something they did not like - they have not come up with any alternative solutions to their own issues either.

Olivier Giroud is yet to score 20 Premier League goals in a season since signing in 2013, while Danny Welbeck has been struggling with injuries over the past year.

A failed pursuit of Leicester City's Jamie Vardy earlier this summer suggested they were trying to address the situation, but there has been nothing since, barring the acquisition of Japanese striker Takuma Asano, who is expected to play no part for them next season.

This is why seeing their bitter rivals Spurs land a genuinely exciting striker like Janssen for an affordable fee has not gone down well with Gooners, and manager Arsene Wenger has predictably been copping the blame.
