Tottenham have had a £11.3m bid to sign Vincent Janssen rejected by AZ Alkmaar, say reports

Tottenham have had a £11.3m bid to sign Vincent Janssen rejected by AZ Alkmaar, according to reports.

Spurs are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as Mauricio Pochettino prepares his side for a return to the Champions League next season.

The north London side have already wrapped up a deal to bring midfielder Victor Wanyama to the club on a five-year contract.

Now, it appears the Pochettino has his sights firmly set on strengthening his attacking options ahead of the new campaign.

BBC Sport is reporting that Tottenham have had a bid of 14m Euros turned down by the Dutch club, with AZ reported to be holding out for a fee closer to 20m Euros.

Janssen, 22, finished last season as the top scorer in the league, scoring 27 goals in his first campaign in the Eredivisie.
