Arsenal target confirms he wants to leave!
Arsenal may be close to signing Jamie Vardy but according to some news reports, Wenger may still have another striker option up his sleeve.
Arsenal have been linked with AZ ALKMAAR striker Vincent Janssen a lot this summer, a rumour that just won’t be put to bed. In a recent interview, Janssen has added fuel to those rumours by openly stating his desire to move away from AZ, and a move to England with Arsenal may be on the cards.
In a Metro Article, Janssen is reported as saying: ‘I want to make a step, that is clear. But there is no white smoke just now. England? We will see. Maybe something will happen in the holidays. I will take my phone with me anyway.’
Janssen doesn’t seem too confident that a move will happen any time soon but of course there is still plenty of time left in this summer’s transfer window. The striker doesn’t seem to be a firm favourite first choice of any transfer intentions, so perhaps that’s why he phone hasn’t been ringing as of yet. However that could change soon if Wenger decides he sees room for another striker after Vardy (that’s if Vardy does move of course!)
The 21 year old is a promising striker who scored 27 goals in 34 games last season, an impressive feat for anyone, let alone a future prospect. With Janssen there is still so much room for development into an even better player, making him far from the finished product. Therefore he seems like a typical Wenger signing so if I were you Vincent, I’d keep that phone on and you may be hearing from Arsenal very soon.
