Tottenham In Transfer Battle With Southampton For Talented 20-year-old Dutchman

Published

on

It is not strange for a talented youngster to be linked with Tottenham Hotspur these days. The presence of Mauricio Pochettino in the dug-out is a great attraction considering the Argentine’s penchant to give chances to youngsters.

No wonder then that latest reports in the media link the club with an interest in PSV youngster Steven Bergwijn. A report from Dutch outlet Voetbal International indicates that the player could soon be out of the club with Southampton also reported to be an interested party and target the signature of Bergwijn in the January transfer window.

It is not new for Tottenham to pick players from the Dutch League, although results have been mixed. Vincent Janssen was signed for the club with high hopes from the fans, only to falter in his debut season and eventually go on loan to Fenerbahce.

This summer has seen Spurs sign Davinson Sanchez from Ajax, adding steel to their back four. Southampton added Jordy Clasie from Feyenoord when Ronald Koeman was at the club.

However, this report also says that the two Premier League sides need to hasten up their process if they want to pick Berwijn. There is interest from Italy too as Serie A side Torino is interested in the youngster.

Torino made a late dash last summer to sign the Dutch Under-21 international but failed to get a deal done. Then, there is reported interest from West Ham United and Bournemouth. However, it is Tottenham and Southampton who are credited with strongest interest.

Pochettino is looking to sign talented youngsters as he tries to build a new generation of stars at Tottenham. Bergwijn’s ability to play on either wing makes him a target for the Argentine manager.

Is that enough to lure him to Tottenham? There is a worry that the 20-year-old could choose to join Southampton as his first-team chances and regular first-team football would be more at St. Mary’s.

Southampton also have a reputation of providing the right platform for talented youngsters. Also, Pochettino doesn’t generally play any natural wide-men, which could put the youngster off any move.

It looks like there’s going to be an interesting tussle for the signature of this talented youngster.
