PSV Eindhoven striker Jurgen Locadia wants to follow in the footsteps of Vincent Janssen after the Netherlands international completed his move to Tottenham Hotspur. Janssen, 22, signed a four-year deal at White Hart Lane after joining from AZ Alkmaar, becoming the club's second signing of the summer following the arrival of Victor Wanyama from Southampton.
After finishing as the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season, the striker will now challenge Harry Kane for a starting berth up front next season under Mauricio Pochettino, with Spurs desperate to repeat last season's title challenge.
Locadia, 22, who struck 12 goals and provided 14 assists last season, has taken inspiration from Janssen's move to these shores, and is hopeful of getting his own move sooner rather than later.
"It's something to think about. I'm getting older. Just look at Vincent Janssen," Locadia told Voetbal International.
"Getting a good year and the opportunity in such a short space of time and then going to a nice club [Tottenham Hotspur]. That's my dream."
Pochettino however feels the club have got the right man. He told the official Tottenham website. "He did very well at AZ and I am happy that he has joined us. He was our target. Vincent is still very young and his potential is massive to develop. He has a profile that fits perfectly for us. He's a fighter, he has quality in the box and he's a striker that likes to fight and work for the team. That is perfect for us.
"We are very happy and excited that he has joined us. His human profile is perfect for the team, we always care about that. He showed last season he had enough quality to join us. In general, he's a player that fits the team. We're all excited. It's early in preseason, just the second week and he will have time to adapt. We wish all the best for him."
