Van der Vaart Urges Tottenham Striker To Leave White Hart Lane Amid Reports Of Summer Exit

Former Tottenham star Rafael van der Vaart has spoken out about the future of his compatriot Vincent Janssen.

Van der Vaart is of the view that the Netherlands international should leave and seek regular first-choice action next season.

He told Voetbal Flitsen: “I hope [he has a future at Spurs] but you have to be honest, the competition against Kane it’s not possible [to play regularly] and I think at his age it’s better to move.”

Pochettino is expected to sign another forward this summer to rival Harry Kane.

Janssen joined Tottenham for £18.5m [Daily Mail] in 2016 but scored just two goals from open play in 38 games.

The 24-year-old was subsequently loaned out to Fenerbahce where he had a season disrupted by injuries.

The Yellow Canaries are however, willing to give the striker another chance on loan next term.

Turkish-Football understands that Janssen is among several names the Super Lig are targeting upfront.

Fenerbahce are facing a striker crisis, Roberto Soldado is currently the only first-choice forward but he is injured.

Fernandao has been sold and Janssen has returned to the North London outfit following the end of his loan deal.

The Istanbul based outfit are determined to sign at least two strikers before the start of the Champions League playoff round.

Janssen would be joining recently appointed Dutch coach Phillip Cocu if he were to return to Turkey.
