Tottenham willing to pay £17 million and Vincent Janssen for Eljif Elmas

Vincent Janssen moved to Tottenham in 2016 after becoming the top scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie. The striker has found life hard to live in London with Mauricio Pochettino freezing the Dutchman out of his preferred XI. His exile has been so comprehensive that he only appeared for Tottenham for 36 minutes in the Premier League. He is now at the center of speculation linking him with a move to Germany as well as Turkey.

Janssen part of Eljif Elmas swap with Fenerbahce

Yesterday we reported that Tottenham’s out of favour striker Vincent Janssen maybe the subject of a bid from Bundesliga club Schalke. Latest reports blow that narrative out of the water by labelling him as a makeweight in Tottenham’s bid to sign 19 year old Macedonian midfielder Eljif Elmas who plays in the Turkish top division.

Turkish media claim that Tottenham will try to convince Fenerbahce to sell Elmas by offering them £17 million in cash and Vincent Janssen to sweeten the deal. Player swaps are not the norm these days and it’s a big question if Janssen would really have the appetite to move to Turkey.

So take all of this with a pinch of salt.

Fenerbahce’s Elmas will not be an immediate solution

All the reports linking Eljif Elmas with Tottenham ignore the fact that he is not the number 1 priority as of now. Tottenham need to move players out to grease the wheels on their incoming transfers so it doesn’t make sense that they would splash so much on a teenager.

Highly rated as Eljif is, he is still unproven at the top level of the game and is unlikely to make the cut this season under Pochettino.

Here’s hoping we hear on other more important transfers like Eriksen or NDombele soon.
