PSV Eindhoven midfielder Steven Bergwijn could be on the move to north London as Tottenham Hotspur bid £35.5m for his services – but would he be a good addition to the Spurs squad?
Football365 cite Dutch journalist Rik Elfrink in reporting that Manchester United are also keen on the winger but are yet to make a formal offer.
The wide areas are clearly an issue manager Mauricio Pochettino wishes to address this summer, and at the back end of last week, Read Tottenham reported that his team-mate Hirving Lozano was being touted for a potential switch.
Bergwijn can play on either flank and impressed last season with his dribbling and trickery on the ball, bamboozling and beating defenders with ease.
In addition to this, the 21-year-old is known to have a good end product, scoring 14 goals and laying on a further 12 for his team-mates in last season’s Eredivisie.
As expected the wide-man is also pacy, which could be of benefit to Pochettino both going forwards and in defence with full-backs Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose both nearing their 30s.
Van Bergwijn also has experience of playing in the Champions League, a competition that Spurs will, of course, be looking to perform well in again.
Signing the Dutch international will provide much-needed competition to Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min, with Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko both struggling for form of late.
He is only going to improve given his tender age and the chance to play with such a skilled striker as Harry Kane should see his assist numbers rise.
For £35.5m, chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to find a player of such calibre that is willing to move to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
