Former Tottenham ace Rafael van der Vaart has tipped the club’s newest recruit, Vincent Janssen, to be a big success in North London.
The Dutch international completed his big-money move to White Hart Lane from AZ Alkmaar earlier this week, having enjoyed an impressive final season in the Eredivisie, scoring 27 goals in 34 league appearances.
The 22-year-old is now being tipped to make a similar impact at Spurs, with van der Vaart, who spent two years in North London between 2010 and 2012, expecting his compatriot to be a huge success in the Premier League.
“In my opinion Tottenham have signed a great striker,” van der Vaart told Tottenham’s official website. “He is still young, but he is a real striker. He loves to play and work for the team. But he does not just score goals, he makes goals as well.
“If you work hard at Tottenham and in the Premier League, people will love you and if you score goals, you will be a legend. I hope he will do both.”
Janssen, who made his international debut for the Netherlands earlier this year, will provide competition in the forward positions for Spurs, who were heavily reliant on the goals of leading scorer Harry Kane last season.
