The Hammers have already tabled a £17million bid for the 22-year-old, who finished last season as the Eredivisie’s leading goal scorer with 27 goals during what was his maiden top flight campaign.
However, the Netherlands international has already snubbed an approach from the East London side – and Ligue 1 champions PSG – because he wants a summer move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Indeed, Spurs have already launched a succession of failed bids for the 5 foot 11 frontman, allegedly due to the influence of ‘Moneyball’ muse Billy Beane, leading Janssen to criticise his current employers.
However, The Daily Mail claim Spurs are finally ready to meet AZ Alkmaar’s £17million valuation of Janssen, who they’re targeting as a backup to star striker Harry Kane.
Spurs are also chasing Roma youngster Antonio Sanabria, who bagged eleven goals on loan at Sporting Gijon last season.
