Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Dutch international striker Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar on a four-year contract, the deal is now subject to international clearance.
The 22-year-old forward completed his medical on Monday and it has now been confirmed that he will join Harry Kane in the Spurs attack next season, for a fee understood to be £18.6m.
Mauricio Pochettino has been strengthening his squad this summer as he looks to build on last season’s third-place Premier League finish and had already signed midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton last month.
Vincent Janssen moved to Alkmaar for just £340,000 from Almere City in Holland’s second division.
The striker’s performances saw him earn the 2016 Johan Cruyff Trophy, awarded to the Eredivisie’s young player of the year, previously won by former Spurs playmaker Rafael van der Vaart and current star Christian Eriksen.
