From the transfer market, sometimes old targets return – Dutch striker Vincent Janssen is this player currently being linked to the Lazio to reinforce the attack, and back-up Ciro Immobile when needed.

The 23-year-old striker was sent on loan to Turkish club Fenerbahce this season from Tottenham – he managed only 16 appearances and 4 goals for the club – definitely not an easy season playing wise. Fracturing his ankle, he became  Injured in December, and was out until April 9th of 2018 – a total of 122 days. He managed to collect some remnant of the game, but it is quite hard for a player to return to top form after such a serious injury.

The 1994 born player has now returned to Tottenham but does not seem to be included in the plans of Mauricio Pochettino moving forward, and according to the Fanatik, a Turkish newspaper, Lazio is competing with Besiktas and Bayer Leverkusen for the player, who the English club rates at around 10 million euros.

Janssen has always been a promising young man: in the Eredivisie two years ago, he scored 27 goals, proclaiming himself top scorer. However, when he moved to Tottenham in the summer of 2016 for around 22 million euros, he never managed to express his enormous talent, and maybe in Serie A he could return to top form with the biancoceleste shirt.

If possible, there could even be a pairing formed with the striker and capocannoniere Ciro Immobile, as the two players play quite differently: Janssen stays more central and is more-so a target man, where Immobile chases and is not afraid to go to the wider areas on the pitch.

While one Dutch player turns the page on Lazio in center-half Stefan De Vrij, a new door opens for another, in Vincent Janssen.
