Transfer News: 24-year-old Tottenham star could return to his homeland this summer

Steven Bergwijn is likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur and join Ajax this summer

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required), Steven Bergwijn is likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur and join Ajax in a potential move in the summer transfer window. His minutes have reduced considerably since January, which has thrown his future at N17 into uncertainty.

Tottenham had seen off an attempt from the Amsterdam based club to sign Bergwijn in the winter transfer window. The former was willing to part ways with him for a fee of around £20.8 million, which Ajax were not ready to pay for his services. The Dutch club have retained their interest in him once again, having been a long term admirer of his talents.

Now, it is claimed that the Dutch international is likely to depart Spurs and join the Eredivisie winners at the end of this season. That is touted to be a probable scenario despite Antonio Conte being a fan of his qualities. Furthermore, the English club would likely have to reduce their demands as the forward has not played much since January.

Unfortunate situation

The fans were expecting the 24-year-old winger to become a key presence in Conte’s system following his excellent displays against West Ham United and Leicester City this term. As such, most of the supporters were happy to see the club keep hold of Bergwijn, especially considering how they had to play in several competitions back then.

Unfortunately, things have not turned out the way many were expecting as our exits from the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup seriously reduced the former PSV Eindhoven man’s chances of earning game time. After all, it would have been a tough ask for him to pip Son Heung-Min from the starting lineup, especially with the South Korean arguably enjoying his best-ever campaign.

That being said, Bergwijn possesses all the qualities to be successful with us, which could perhaps be why Conte is a keen admirer of his services. However, we cannot blame the boss for choosing Son ahead of the Dutchman, which has played a part in this situation.

Top players would like to enjoy a more prominent role which is the same with Bergwijn as well. That could perhaps be even more heightened looking at how the 2022 Qatar World Cup is edging closer with each passing day.

Ideally, it would be best if the North London club could keep hold of the Tottenham attacker past this summer. After all, with the added weight of Champions League football, we need to keep hold of our quality players, which also includes Bergwijn.

Hence, even though it seems like a losing battle, Conte and Fabio Paratici must do their best to convince Bergwijn to stay instead of moving to the Netherlands. The winger would probably enjoy more minutes next season, considering how we would engage on multiple fronts, which call for the need for rotations, unlike what happened towards the tail end of this season.
