Vincent Janssen Slams AZ For Rejecting Tottenham Bid – AZ striker Vincent Janssen has slammed the club for rejecting a transfer offer for him from Tottenham Hotspurs.
The North London side had submitted a €17 million (£14.1m) bid for Janssen, who was the highest goal scorer in the Eredivisie last season, but was rejected by AZ.
“I want nothing more than the front door, with everyone shaking hands, because I’ve had a fantastic year here and I have developed well under John van den Brom. It is best if Tottenham, AZ and Vincent Janssen are all satisfied,” he told De Telegraaf.
The 22-year old added: “But AZ are blocking my dream transfer and that’s incredibly disappointing for me. I trust AZ will talk to Spurs. If AZ do not, despite the offered amount and Spurs drop out, then that is a blow to me.
“I’m not one to make a quick war, but how I will react, I do not know. I assume that AZ realises that a transfer for everyone is for the best.”
“That was the asking price. Apparently, AZ has a much higher amount in mind,” said the striker. “AZ refuses even to reveal the price that would allow me to leave. I find that frustrating because it relates to me.
