According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen is in talks with German club Schalke over a loan move.

It has been reported that Tottenham and Real Betis had agreed on a loan deal with an option to buy.

 

However, according to the report, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy increased the loan fee by £1 million, and Betis have decided not to pursue their interest in the 24-year-old striker.

No future at Tottenham Hotspur?

Janssen has failed to make an impact at Tottenham, and it does not come as a surprise that the North London outfit are reportedly willing to offload him.

Spurs chairman Levy is a very shrewd businessman, and it is interesting that he reportedly increased the loan fee for Janssen.

With Schalke now reportedly in talks, it seems that the Tottenham chairman did not make a mistake, as he probably knows that there will be interest in the 24-year-old on January transfer deadline day.
