Real Betis talks for Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen

Real Betis are holding talks this week for the transfer of Tottenham’s out-of-favour striker Vincent Janssen, say reports.

The London Evening Standard report that Spurs are keen to offload the Dutch forward in order to free up funds to reinvest in their squad.

The 24-year-old joined the North London club from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 for a €20m fee but has netted just two Premier League goals in 27 appearances since.

“Clubs do come forward, but it doesn’t actually become concrete,” the report cites the player’s agent Patrick van Diemen as saying earlier this month.

“The most important thing now is that Janssen will play again.”

Betis are keen to reinforce their attack following Antonio Sanabria’s loan move to Genoa earlier this month.

Janssen had a loan spell at Turkish club Fenerbahce last season, where he netted five goals in 18 appearances.
