Tottenham are reportedly closing in on a transfer deal for PSV forward Steven Bergwijn as several journalists claim a deal has been agreed.
Spurs need cover up front following the recent injury to Harry Kane, and Bergwijn seems an ideal candidate after impressing in the Eredivisie.
The Netherlands international had been linked as a target for Tottenham by the Mail and others, and now a number of high-profile reporters are all saying more or less the same thing on Twitter, suggesting a fee has been agreed and the deal is edging closer to completion…

Tottenham fans will probably feel pretty happy with this, with Bergwijn looking a fine signing for a very reasonable transfer fee.

Jose Mourinho inherited a struggling squad in need of an overhaul when he replaced Mauricio Pochettino earlier this season, and it looks like he’s got off to a solid start in the transfer market.
