Tottenham set to sell strike duo

Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen have both been put up for sale by Tottenham for a combined asking price of £30m, claims the Evening Standard

The North Londoners are keen to part with Janssen this summer and have deliberately left him out of their pre-season tour in America to ensure that any possible sale for the Netherlands international will not be compromised.

The  24-year-old was signed by Spurs in 2016 from AZ Alkmaar in a £17m deal after finishing the 2015/16 season as the top goalscorer of the Eredivisie.

But he has failed to live up to expectations in the Premier League and Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now out to recoup the £17m they had spent on him.

However, Janssen is not the only striker to have been shown the exit door with Llorente also expected to leave soon.

The Spaniard had only arrived at Spurs 12 months ago, after turning down an offer from Chelsea, but he has struggled to make an impact and has found himself being left on the bench.

With Harry Kane continuing to produce the goods for Spurs last season, Llorente was restricted to just the one start in the Premier League with a further 15 substitute appearances and a solitary goal to his name.
