How Spurs will Line up with Vincent Janssen

BPLTottenham Hotspur’s search for an out and out striker may as well be over as reports suggest that the North Londoners are close to signing Dutch international Vincent Janssen.
According to Mirror, Spurs have already agreed a fee with Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar to sign the prolific goal scorer for £12m and have also spoken to the player as well.
The 21-year-old Netherlands striker was the top scorer of the Dutch league last season after scoring no fewer than 27 times. He also provided 5 assists in the league as well. Over all, Vincent featured in 49 games for AZ last season and directly contributed in 39 goals (32 goals and 7 assists).
Dubbed as the new Ruud van Nistelrooy, Janssen has earned praise for his “fantastic” (ESPN) performances and has all the traits to be a fantastic signing for Spurs.
The mentioned price tag is an absolute bargain for someone of Janssen’s calibre. However, the Dutch striker must know that he will mainly be utilized as a substitute or when the first choice striker, PL top scorer, Harry Kane is rested/injured.
Considering that Pochettino prefers the 4-2-3-1 formation, here is how Spurs will line up with Vincent Janssen (in Kane’s absence).

    Oh my god, do you mean that Kane’s cover will play… Instead of Kane?
    Sometimes I wonder why you are even allowed to write such tripe!

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see him come on at the 60 mins mark and replace any one of the front 4 with Harry dropping back if it’s not him that’s subbed.
    A kind of “soft” rotation policy if you like.

    Rather have Wimmer than Vertonghen !!

    Why are we only supposed to be buying “cover” for Kane? Kane’s done great but let’s be honest he should be converting more than he does considering the chances we create and possession we have very game. If we really want to be title challengers each season we should be looking at the caliber of player that Kane has to challenge with in training for the 1st striker spot, not cover. Also Kane tends to sit deep, we should be looking to utilize him there & get a 6yrd box poacher.

    I’m still wondering how a second striker will be played at Spurs. We allowed a backup to play those pesky European cup games but I don’t think Kane will want to be rested fro the champions league. And no doubt we’ll have a champions league game between 2 tough games. If we are going to get another striker, we need to guarantee he’s going to score regularly and compete with Kane. Even if it risks Kane being outshone.
