It is hardly a secret that Arsenal need at least one striker this summer as a replacement for the injured Danny Welbeck, and one that has been mentioned many many times is the Eredivise top scorer this season, Vincent Janssen.
He is a prime candidate for the future having scored 27 goals for AZ Alkmaar this season, at just 22 years of age. Not only that but he has scored three times for Holland in his first 5 games, that tells me he has very high potential…
But it seems that our rivals Tottenham have made the first bid for Janssen, but it seems they offered just a paltry 14m euros, which is way below valuation. “The difference between the offer and the price we demand was too big,” said AZ technical director Max Huiberts.
“I’ve read a lot of speculation and been telephoned by other clubs but no-one else has made any concrete offer.”
I am gobsmacked that Arsenal haven’t snapped him up at 20m euros, especially now that the Vardy snub has been confirmed. He is young, strong, brave, and has an excellent eye for goal, and I will guarantee he will be ten times better than Theo Walcott at a fraction of his wages.
I seriously hope that Wenger is confident of getting a superstriker instead, or he could regret letting Janssen go to one of our rivals this cheaply.
Check out his goals for last season, some excellent stuff there…..
