Tottenham Hotspur reject January transfer bid from Ajax for Steven Bergwijn

According to Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a bid from Ajax for getting the services of Steven Bergwijn in the January transfer window. He has failed to make a mark at N17 under Antonio Conte and could potentially be the first departure during his tenure.

The Eredivisie club had put in a bid worth €18 million for the Dutchman, but their attempt was denied by Tottenham. They are keen on bringing him back to the Netherlands and are planning to put a second offer on the table as soon as possible.

Spurs are willing to move the 24-year-old on if they receive a reasonable bid for him. The Dutch side is hoping that their improved offer would be enough to finalise a transfer in the coming days.

Bergwijn to leave Spurs for Ajax?

Given that we paid £27million in transfer fees to PSV Eindhoven for the Dutchman, it is understandable why we have not entertained the initial offer from Erik Ten Hag’s side. He may not have made a huge mark at N17 but he is a talented footballer who continues to shine for the Netherlands national team.

Not just that, the Spurs forward has shown flashes of brilliance recently, with his brace against West Ham United being one of them. As such, he could still end up becoming a success elsewhere, considering he is still pretty young.

The aim would surely be to recoup as much money as we reasonably can for Bergwijn, granted we want to sell him. Fabio Paratici and co can then potentially put that cash towards bringing in some key reinforcements at the club in the near future.

One concern with this move, however, is that the depth in our frontline would get reduced even further. His transfer away from Spurs would then leave us with Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min and Bryan Gil as our only senior attacking options.

Gil cannot be fully counted on just yet as he is still adapting to the Premier League, whereas Son is out on the sidelines for the rest of this month. That doesn’t leave us with a lot of experienced options out wide. Erik Lamela would have been a player we could have used in such a situation, but he left for Sevilla this summer.

More Tottenham Hotspur

We are walking on a tightrope in the current circumstances and potentially losing the Dutch attacker would put us in a precarious situation. We would certainly be wise to bring in a replacement up front if Bergwijn is to leave the club this month.
