Ajax will attempt to sign Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn this summer, according to reports in the Netherlands.
Bergwijn joined Spurs from Ajax’s Eredivisie rivals PSV Eindhoven for £27 million (via BBC Sport) in January 2020.
After a good start, the Holland international struggled for minutes and form this season, though he returned to the starting line-up under Ryan Mason late in the campaign.
But Tottenham’s resolve could be tested this summer if new reports are to be believed.
Dutch football journalist Mike Verweij – speaking on Telegraaf Podcast (a podcast from the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf) – recently revealed Ajax will make efforts to take Bergwijn back to the Netherlands this summer (as relayed by @AllAboutAjax).
Verweij claims Ajax want to pay €15 million (about £12.9m) for the 23-year-old but Spurs are apparently asking for €25 million (about £21.5m).
Either way, the Londoners may have to be willing to take a bit of a hit on Bergwijn as it seems unlikely they will recoup the full £27 million they paid for him.
In our opinion, we think he should be given another season to prove himself under a new manager.
