Gladbach ready to offer Spurs’ £17m flop an escape route – report

Borussia Moenchengladbach will give Tottenham flop Vincent Janssen a way out of White Hart Lane, according to reports.

Janssen joined Spurs in a £17million deal from AZ Alkmaar last summer but the striker failed to hold down a regular place in the starting line-up with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min ahead of him in the pecking order.

The Dutchman could only manage seven starts in 27 Premier League appearances in which he scored two goals for the north Londoners.

The Daily Mirror claims that Gladbach are targeting Janssen in a bid to give more support to their leading scorer Lars Stindl.

Gladbach still have cash spare from their sale of Granit Xhaka to Arsenal for £34million last summer and have already offloaded Mahmoud Dahoud this transfer window for £10million to Borussia Dortmund.

The report claims that Janssen would be guaranteed regular first-team football with the Bundesliga club as there is room for a frontline striker to partner Stindl, who plays in a free role.
