It moves on the side of number 1! After bringing star Mark van Bommel to the bench and controversial Marc Overmars as sporting director, the Antwerp club are set to land Dutch international Vincent Janssen according to Het Laatste Nieuws.
With a contract estimated at 2.5 million euros per year, the striker would become the biggest contract in our league. His arrival is also imminent since the future former Monterrey player was seen at Bosuil where he will officially commit for four seasons. Former top scorer in the Eredivisie before joining Tottenham for 22 million euros, the 28-year-old has played for Monterrey in Mexico for the past three seasons.
The same salary for Toby Alderweireld?
Antwerp is ready to do anything to replay the Pro League win. To achieve this, Ritchie De Laet’s teammates need experience and intend to repatriate Toby Alderweireld, currently in Qatar. The former Tottenham defender also seems to be getting closer to Antwerp where a juicy contract awaits him. Still according to our Dutch-speaking colleagues, he would also receive 2.5 million euros annually. By way of comparison, Simon Mignolet receives a few hundred thousand euros less on the side of the Venice of the North.
With these expenses, Paul Gheysens’ club seems to be determined to compete strongly with Club Brugge and break away from Anderlecht, Ghent, Genk or Standard.
