This summer one of the main positions that Tottenham Hotspur needed to improve on was up front. Last term Harry Kane was essentially their only striking option and he needed to bring in support for the England striker.

Vincent Janssen ended up being the man who got the call.

The Dutch striker joined for a fee reported by Sky Sports to be in the region of £18.6 million after an impressive season in the Dutch top-flight with AZ Alkmaar – in which he scored 27 goals in 34 appearances.

Janssen failed to score in Tottenham’s two most recent friendly matches, but impressed against Atletico Madrid in his last outing.

Speaking to the press after the game Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino declared himself happy with the performances of the Dutch international – but, as quoted by the London Evening Standard, stressed the need for goals from the player:

“He is adapting his game to the team. He has come from a different league and a different style of play.

“I’m very happy with his performance. It’s true that we want him to score but he still needs time to adapt to our game.”

Janssen will undoubtedly take a little time to settle at White Hart Lane and into English football but he certainly seems to have all the attributes to settle into the English game.

If he can add some goals to his good performances, then he should go into the Premier League season firing.
