Everyone Is Saying The Same Thing About Fenerbahce's New Strike-Force

Everyone Is Saying The Same Thing About Fenerbahce's New Strike-Force

With the Turkish window closing later on tonight, Fenerbahce have swooped to take Spurs striker Vincent Janssen off the books for the season.

Despite Mauricio Pochettino stressing that the £17 million signing would not be leaving the club in a press conference on Thursday, the arrival of Fernando Llorente pushed him further down the pecking order, and after being left out of the club's Champions League squad he has now been allowed to leave on loan - with Fenerbahce announcing the deal on their official website.

The Netherlands international has undergone a medical but doesn't exactly look thrilled about signing for Fenerbahce on loan.

And with the former AZ Alkmaar man joining for the season, Fenerbahce now have the capacity to field two Spurs flops upfront, having signed Roberto Soldado - another player who failed big-time in the white half of North London after showing so much promise at his previous club.

Janssen scored 31 times in a solitary season at AZ in 2015/16, but could only manage a mere six goals in 35 appearances in all competitions in his new surroundings - with the vast majority of his goals coming from the penalty spot.

It's more or less the same story as Soldado's stint at Spurs. Upon his £26 million move, the Spain international had hit 81 goals in three seasons with Valencia and had just come off the back a 30-goal campaign. But he never really got going, scoring 16 times in 76 appearances across the two seasons, and like Janssen, a good chunk of his goals were penalties.

Needless to say that with two of Spurs' worst ever signings linking up in Turkey, Twitter has been reacted in the same fashion:
