Arsenal transfer target Vincent Janssen admits he wants to leave AZ Alkmaar

AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen has admitted that he wants to leave the club to make the next step in his career.

The 21-year-old netted a brilliant 27 goals in 34 Eredivisie appearances last season, and has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

‘I want to make a step, that is clear. But there is no white smoke just now,’ Janssen told Fox Sports.

‘England? We will see. Maybe something will happen in the holidays. I will take my phone with me anyway.’

Although the Gunners have been strongly linked with a move for fellow forward Jamie Vardy, they may choose to move for more than one player in the position.

In addition, with the Leicester City hero now 29-years-old, Arsene Wenger may want a younger, and more typical, signing to go along with him.
