Tottenham have ‘decided to sell’ 24-year-old attacker

Tottenham have decided to sell Steven Bergwijn this month, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Dutchman has failed to make a significant impact since joining from PSV for £27m in 2020, scoring just five goals in 64 goals in all competitions.

Bergwijn has started just one game under Antonio Conte, but did score one and assist another in the Carabao Cup victory over West Ham last month. He would play 26 minutes against Crystal Palace four days later, but hasn’t featured since, missing the Southampton, Watford, Chelsea and Morecambe games through injury.

In total, the 24-year-old has missed nine games with ankle and calf problems this season, and reliable transfer guru, Romano, believes that Tottenham want to move him on before the window closes on 31 January.

Many clubs are reportedly interested in his services, including Ajax, but Romano said that nothing has been agreed with Tottenham and the race for his signature is “open”.

Bizarrely, with Heung Min Son out injured, Bergwijn could play some part against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, providing he recovers from injury. But his time in north London appears to be drawing to a close.

  1. Yes Bergiwjn to be sold because he is very unreliable
    As fan please get 3 new players
    New striker to support Kane
    New attacking midfielder to take place of
    Nbemobe
    New central defender in place of Rondon

  2. I’ve always found Bergwijn to be an underwhelming signing. Not because he isnt a good footballer, because he is a good footballer, but because it was a 1 dimensional signing for a position that required an intelligent creative player. If we have kane and son, which we do, then we need some creativity in the right forward position, and bergwijn was never going to offer that.

    I would absolutely love us to push the boat out and bring Luis Diaz for right forward, then we need some steel in midfield and at least we can have a serious crack at the second half of this season.

  3. Spurs need to be more creative than getting the obvious valuable striker, like Diaz. First off, Porto are top of the Portuguese table and he’s a big reason why (topping Benfica is huge to Porto!). Second, if they were willing to let him go he’ll cost so much money that he would be our only signing (for years?!) and that would compromise Spurs acquiring a RWB, like Adama.

    I think Spurs should overpay for a guy like Adebayo from Luton (still only 5 mil GBP). He’s got 10 goals for a struggling club, has good size and is in the last year of his contract (we could even loan them Tanganga, like we did Cameron a couple of years back). Yeah, he may be another Llorente, but it will at least give Harry a break here and there this season (and maybe beyond)?

    • Oh, and in relation to Steven, he was always a curious buy, one that even Jose seemed to question. He hasn’t really panned out and doesn’t seem entirely happy in England…..so sell him!
