Friday to replace Janssen at Alkmaar?

Nigerian striker Fred Friday is expected to soon make the switch from Norwegian club Lillestrom to Dutch side AZ Alkmaar.

Alkmaar are on the lookout for additional personnel up front after selling Vincent Janssen to Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

The 21-year-old Friday, a powerful marksman, is leading the Norwegian scoring charts with eight goals from 14 games so far this season.

Having been at the Norwegian club since 2013, he now looks set to continue his career in Holland, according to a source quoted by AfricanFootball.

"He will finally sign today [Friday]," claimed the unnamed source.
