Villa and Wolves could have hijacked Tottenham deal for Lucas Bergvall
Tottenham Hotspur’s successful acquisition of Swedish talent Lucas Bergvall came amidst late competition from two Premier League rivals, Aston Villa and Wolves, as reported. Despite interest from these clubs, Bergvall ultimately chose to join Spurs, highlighting his preference for Ange Postecoglou’s project over other potential destinations.
That is as per The Sun. The £8.5m deal, with additional add-ons, secured Bergvall‘s signature for Tottenham, beating out competition from Barcelona in the process. The 19-year-old midfielder, already capped by the Sweden national team, emerged as a highly sought-after prospect in the transfer market.
Aston Villa and Wolves stood prepared to offer higher sums, ranging between £10m to £11m, to secure Bergvall’s services. However, the player remained steadfast in his decision to join Tottenham, despite “remaining flattered” by the interest from other clubs.
Bergvall has a huge future ahead of him!
Bergvall’s decision to join Spurs reflects his belief in the vision and direction of the club under Postecoglou. While he will continue to represent Djurgarden for the remainder of the season, Bergvall’s commitment to Tottenham is evident as he eagerly awaits his official arrival on July 1.
The agreement allows Tottenham to secure Bergvall’s services ahead of the summer transfer window, providing the club with ample time to integrate him into their squad and strategic plans. The potential for conditional add-ons could see the deal rise to £15.8m, underscoring Tottenham’s investment in Bergvall’s future development and potential contributions to the team.
During his time at Djurgarden, Bergvall has showcased his talent, contributing three goals and one assist in 29 appearances. His versatility and skillset make him a valuable addition to Tottenham’s midfield, offering depth and quality to the squad.
Additionally, Bergvall’s youthful exuberance and hunger for success align with Tottenham’s ambitions of competing at the highest level and challenging for silverware in the seasons to come.
