Vincent Janssen is one of two signings Tottenham have made this summer, and has the potential to make a major impact in the Premier League.

The 2015/16 Eredivisie top goalscorer was brought in to provide competition and cover for Harry Kane, but former Spurs midfielder Danny Murphy argues he is unproven and not enough, and Spurs must do more to strengthen up front.

Speaking to Talksport on Monday (8/8) at 8pm, Murphy said that he is unconvinced by the club's acquisition of the Dutchman.

He said: "Look around at other big clubs, what are Tottenham going to do in the next few weeks to stay up with them. They might not need to but I think they need to.

"I know they've spent heavily on Janssen but us at Fulham bought Bryan Ruiz from Holland and he struggled. He was a super talent, great technician but struggled to come to terms with the Premier League.

"There's no guarantee this guy can come over here and pull up trees. It's a risk, a signing that has potential. I think they need to do more."

While Janssen is just 22-years-old, he has already ascended to become a Dutch international, and impressed against England in a recent friendly.

The striker may have a lot to prove, but it's also harsh at this early stage to judge him for the struggles of other players who starred in Holland who have failed to excel in England.

Spurs could go out and buy another striker, but with Janssen on board and Shayon Harrison taking another step closer to the first team, the club are a lot better off up front than they were last season.
