Tottenham have yet to come up with a suitable offer for AZ Alkmaar forward Vincent Janssen, according to the sporting director of the Dutch club, Max Huiberts.

Striker Janssen, the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season with 27 goals, was given permission to spend two days in London last month and visited Spurs' training ground, meeting manager Mauricio Pochettino and discussing his plans for the future.

Spurs are said to have initially tabled an offer of around £11million, which has reportedly since been improved upon, but Alkmaar are holding firm for closer to their £17million valuation.
