Arsenal set to lose out to Spurs for striker's signature as they wait on Jamie Vardy

Tottenham could pounce for Arsenal target Vincent Janssen as the Gunners stall on any moves for forwards while they wait for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to decide on his future.

AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen could be moving to London.

The forward, who finished on top of the Eredivise's scoring charts with 27 goals in 34 overall appearances, has been linked with both Spurs and Arsenal.

It looks as though Spurs are the likeliest to secure the Holland striker's signature, with the Daily Mirror reporting that the White Hart Lane club are in talks with the Dutchman.

This is following an agreement with AZ, who secured fourth place in this season's league, of a fee in the region of £12million for the goalscoring forward, according to the report.

Janssen made his international debut against England, scoring a penalty and laying on the other goal as the Netherlands beat Roy Hodgson's side 2-1.

Mauricio Pochettino has long been keen to bring in adequate striking support at Spurs for Harry Kane, even more so now that a Champions League campaign is on the club's 2016/17 agenda.

Arsenal, along with Leicester themselves, are also said to be interested in Janssen's services.

However, the North London club are being made to wait by Leicester striker Vardy as he decides whether or not to leave the club he fired to the Premier League title last season.

The most recent reports suggest that the England man is keen to concentrate on Euro 2016, with any decision being made once the country’s campaign in France concludes.

Leicester, meanwhile, are said to favour moves for Watford striker Troy Deeney and CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa over a plunge into the market for Holland man Janssen.
