Clive Allen has explained to The Mirror how the signing of Vincent Janssen will help Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this coming season.

Janssen joined Tottenham from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar in the summer transfer window.

According to The Guardian, the North London outfit had to pay a transfer fee of £17 million in order to secure the services of the Netherlands international striker.

Former Tottenham forward Allen has explained how the 22-year-old is going to be a good addition to the squad and how he will help the 23-year-old Kane.

“Harry will benefit from Janssen coming to the club, no question,” Allen told The Mirror.

“For a start, it will give the manager Mauricio Pochettino another option if he feels Harry needs a break. And just as importantly, it will be competition for Harry.

“If he feels his place is under threat, it's bound to add something to his game. I know I felt like that and I am sure most players do – that if someone comes in and does well in your position, you know you may have to fight to get back in the team.”

Janssen scored 27 goals and created 56 chances in 34 Eredivisie matches for AZ during the 2015-16 season.

The Dutch striker had a pass accuracy of 73% and a shot accuracy of 55%, and won 21 headers, 35 dribbles and 21 tackles, according to Squawka.

During the 2014-15 campaign, Kane scored 21 goals and created 27 chances in 34 Premier League appearances for Tottenham.

The England international striker scored 25 goals and created 44 chances in 38 league matches for the North London outfit last season.

Kane will be a key player for Tottenham in their quest to win the Premier League title this coming season.
