Tottenham close to making striker their first summer signing – report

Tottenham are close to sealing the transfer of striker Vincent Janssen, say reports

Tottenham are on the verge of sealing a transfer deal to sign AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen, according to reports.

Spurs are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new players this summer as they prepare for a return to the Champions League next season – but are yet to bring in any new players.

Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be keen to bring in new talent up front as cover and competition for Harry Kane.

Janssen has long been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, and the Daily Mirror is now reporting that the north London side are closing in on clinching a deal for the forward.

The same report goes on to say that Spurs have agreed a £12m fee with AZ Alkmaar to bring the striker to White Hart Lane this summer.
