We are probably moments away from Vincent Janssen joining Tottenham Hotspur. Multiple outlets are now reporting that the Dutch striker is now in London undergoing a medical at Tottenham’s Hotspur Way training center in Enfield, with the transfer announcement expected momentarily.
The final transfer fee is still somewhat unclear: Sky Sports is reporting a fee of £18.8m, a bit higher than the £17m that was reported elsewhere. That figure could include escalators, or it could be the final purchase price, we’re not sure. We might get some clarity in the official announcement from Spurs, but I doubt it. We may just have to guess for now.
Even if the fee is a bit higher than what Spurs had first anticipated, the club has selected Janssen as their guy and all that’s left is the official announcement. With Janssen’s signing, Spurs will have completed two major signings before the middle of July, which is excellent business and a little weird if you’ve followed Tottenham Hotspur for any length of time.
