PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn is being closely tracked by Tottenham, according to reports in the Netherlands.

Bergwijn made 32 league appearances in 2017/18 as PSV won the Eredevisie title.

The 20-year-old scored eight goals and provided seven assists, helping his side win the Dutch top-flight for the third time in the last four seasons.

After being handed a new five-year contract last month, Mauricio Pochettino has apparently been handed increased transfer funds to overhaul his squad this summer.

Real Madrid have reportedly ended their interest in the Argentinian, which should allow Spurs to get their summer business underway in the coming weeks.

And Dutch outlet De Telegraaf believes Bergwijn is a target, although Tottenham face competition from Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as clubs in Germany, Italy and France.

Pochettino is said to be keen on recruiting another attacker to provide cover and competition both on the wing and through the middle.

Bergwijn is primarily a winger and would arguably struggle to deputise for Harry Kane, so there will be question marks over his credentials to fill the role in question.
