Tottenham Hotspur have suffered a blow in their pursuit to sign Vincent Janssen as club AZ Alkmaar has rejected their offer.
The London side have been keeping tabs on the Dutch striker for the past several weeks but their recent bid has been rejected by Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, according to latest reports.
Spurs are still confident that they can seal the deal once the European Championship ends next month.
The Dutchman was given permission from the club to discuss the deal with Spurs earlier this month. He spent a day in London with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Bundesliga club Wolfsburg are also said to be keeping tabs on the player and could enter the race next month.
Alkmaar have no plans to sell their star striker unless there is a concrete bid on the table. Spurs’ bid around £10million was rejected earlier today. The Dutch side are demanding atleast £16million.
The 22-year-old is currently enjoying Euro Cup 2016 in France with the Netherland’s squad.
Meanwhile, Spurs have signed midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton as their first summer transfer for an undisclosed fee.
The former Celtic midfielder has signed a five year deal.
