Newcastle United enter the race for Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn

According to 90min (h/t Sunderland Echo), Newcastle United have identified Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn as a potential target in the January transfer window. He has had a mixed time throughout his time at N17 and could be on the way out of the club this month.

Ajax Amsterdam are also keeping tabs on Bergwijn as they try to finalise a move in the winter transfer window. They have already made a bid of £15million, but it was rejected by Tottenham as the latter believed it did not meet their valuation.

With Newcastle now in the race, it remains to be seen if there will be a bidding war for Bergwijn in the coming weeks. The Magpies are desperate to stave off relegation and Spurs should look to leverage their desperation to land top dollar.

Potential bidding war?

Newcastle’s recent ownership takeover has seen them already splash the cash in the winter transfer market in an attempt to survive relegation. Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood have already joined the Magpies and if all goes well, Bergwijn could follow suit.

The decision to sell the Dutchman could be made with the right intent since the forward has not met expectations at the Lane. However, there is a lack of depth in the frontline, which raises concern on whether this is the right path to take, especially if there is nobody coming in.

We should only go down this route if the North London club have shortlisted someone else as a transfer target to replace the Tottenham attacker. Otherwise, the lack of depth could impact our chance of challenging for a top-four finish this season.

Interestingly enough, Antonio Conte recently appraised the Dutch international while praising his physical and technical traits. These comments fly right in the face of the club’s willingness to let the player leave this month.

Just what the future holds remains to be seen. Tanguy Ndombele and Dele Alli have also been deemed dispensable as Spurs try to clear the squad of underperforming stars this month.
