Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with the agent of PSV Eindhoven starlet Steven Bergwijn, according to Dutch journalist Maarten Wijffels.
Wijfels follows the Netherlands national team for the outlet Algemeen Dagblad and recently spoke to Sky Sports ahead of Holland’s UEFA Nations League meeting with England.
Speaking about the team’s key threats, Wijfels mentioned Bergwijn, who has also been linked with Manchester United as we relayed last week.
The journalist went on to reveal there have been talks between Spurs and Bergwijn’s agent over a possible summer transfer.
“Spurs are following him,” Wijfels told Sky Sports. “They have talked to his agent and it has been said that there has already been an offer of 40m euros. PSV deny that, but a transfer is probably not far off. Bergwijn is an incredible talent but he still has a lot of potential to improve, especially in front of goal because sometimes he still loses his nerve.
“But this guy is really, really strong. If you look at his legs, you can see his muscles. I think it would be normal for him to make transfer this summer after the Nations League.”
Bergwijn finished the Eredivisie season with 14 goals and 12 assists in 33 appearances, earning his label as one of Holland’s brightest young talents.
The 21-year-old impressed for PSV against Tottenham in the Champions League group stages this season, and it looks like he could end up playing for the Londoners next term.
Spurs will be probably be prioritising moves for central midfielders, such as Giovani Lo Celso, and full-backs before they turn to wingers and strikers.
But Bergwijn would undeniably be a useful addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
