Fabrizio Romano: Tottenham Hotspur and Ajax maintain contact for Steven Bergwijn transfer

According to the reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Tottenham Hotspur and Ajax have maintained contact to facilitate a potential transfer for Steven Bergwijn. His future is up in the air at this moment, which has seen him get linked with an exit this summer.

Earlier this month, Daily Mail claimed that the Eredivisie side saw a £17million bid turned down by Tottenham for Bergwijn. A possible transfer appears to have died down since then as both parties failed to agree to terms over his valuation, but Romano has now confirmed that a move is still on the cards.

All the parties are still in contact with each other, with Spurs willing to part ways with Bergwijn for the right asking price. The Dutch side has deemed him a priority target since the January transfer window, but it remains to be seen if that would prompt them to meet the value set by the English club.

Bergwijn to leave Spurs for Ajax?

The Dutch international has already made it clear that he wants to leave N17 in this summer transfer window. He cannot really be blamed for taking that stance, having struggled to earn regular game time under Antonio Conte, especially in the second half of the last season.

As such, selling Bergwijn would be in our best interests, even if it would deal a damning blow to the attacking depth and quality. After all, it is not wise to keep hold of a player who does not want to be here as it could disrupt the squad harmony that currently exists at N17.

The 24-year-old is a top-notch player, so we must not let him depart for a cut-price deal in any case. His lack of minutes was simply down to Son Heung-Min’s presence coupled with the relatively low amount of fixtures in the latter half of the previous campaign.

What’s more, Bergwijn’s performances for the Netherlands national team led by Louis van Gaal are enough to further back up that claim. In such a case, we must only allow him to depart for the right price as the winger has all the qualities of becoming a star if he earns consistent game time.

If a sale is finalised, it will be interesting to see how Conte deals with the situation moving forward. Dejan Kulusevski has been solid for Spurs since his move in January.

While Ivan Perisic is an option, he is signed for the left wing-back spot, with Sergio Reguilon being in line to leave ahead of the next season. Bryan Gil’s physicality is a concern for the Italian manager, so we should perhaps search the market for a quality backup option at the earliest.
