These are good times for Janssen anyway. He returned on Tuesday evening, after five years, with the Dutch national team, in the international match against Wales. He will celebrate his 28th birthday on Wednesday. And then the transfer must follow as well.
Janssen is currently playing for Mexican Monterrey, who bought him from Tottenham in 2019. However, after three years, he believes it is time for something new, as well as to put himself in the spotlight at the World Cup. Returning to Europe is tempting as well as moving to our country. Antwerp is very interested and has already taken the necessary steps on file. The file is expensive, because Monterrey himself paid 9 million euros at the time and there are demands for a player who earns about 2 million euros net per year in Mexico. That’s why they also investigated the possibility of renting with option to buy in Bosuil. But in any case, an agreement is in the works.
Janssen also admitted that on Tuesday evening. “I spoke with Marc Overmars and Marc van Bommel. We are intent on reaching an agreement between the two sides. We hope this becomes clear in the coming days.”
Janssen has already proven in the past that he knows the target. Especially in Arizona, where he became top scorer in 2016 with 27 goals. Then he awarded his first transfer title to Tottenham, but it was more difficult in the Premier League and he only managed to score two goals. After Mexico, where he won several awards, he now wants to work in Belgium.
