Spurs misfit Vincent Janssen is finally set to leave the club, and is preparing to join the CONCACAF Champions League winners, Mexican side CF Monterrey.
Signed for £17 million from Eredivisie’s AZ Alkmaar in July 2016, Janssen has struggled to establish himself at White Hart Lane, and has made just 42 appearances for the club, scoring 6 times.
He spent last season on loan with Fenerbahçe but, after a strong start which saw him score five times for the Turkish club, he missed much of the rest of the season with a foot injury.
Reports suggest that Janssen is set for a medical on Monday in Europe, with the deal expected to be completed within the next few days. No fee has been reported for the Dutch striker who has played for his country 17 times, scoring 7 goals in the process.
If he does make the move, Janssen will be something of a trail-blazer, as the only European in the Monterrey squad.
