Ajax set to pursue Spurs attacker but clubs remain £8.5m apart in valuation

Despite only arriving in London 18-months ago, wide-attacker Steven Bergwijn could already be on his way out.

That’s according to De Telegraaf’s Valentijn Driessen, (via ESPN), who claims the winger is wanted by Ajax.

Since his arrival in the country’s capital last January, Bergwijn, 23, has gone on to feature in 51 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 12 goals, along the way.

However, having started just 13 Premier League matches under both Jose Mourinho and now Ryan Mason, combined, there are growing fears that the Dutchman is not seen as a valuable first-team member.

Clearly struggling to nail down a spot in either of his manager’s plans, the uncertainty surrounding the 23-year-old’s future appears to be attracting some interest from Europe.

Speaking on the Kick-Off podcast, De Telegraaf’s Driessen, said: “Ajax would have about £13m (€15m) for him, but the asking price will be at least £21.5m (€25m).”

Given the fact both Ajax and Spurs appear to be £8.5m apart in their valuation of Bergwijn, next season could very well see the Dutchman line up once again in London.

Spurs fans – Would you cash in on Bergwijn now or give him another season? – Let us know in the comments.

    We would be stupid to sell him!
    He’s quality, just struggled to show it under Jose’s negative football.
    We are likely to sell Lamela, Lucas, and Vinicus isn’t staying, Kane looks to be off too, which hopefully won’t see Son ask to leave!

    Assuming Son stays that leaves us Bergwijn Dele Son upfront currently.
    If we add one of Watkins, Calvin-Lewin, or Ings as the main focus or Tammy Abraham’s if Kane goes to Chelsea then add players like Leon Bailey or Jonathan David we’ll have a decent interchangeable forward line.

    I’m hoping for a system change to 343 too as think our defence has been really shoddy and with additions and a change of formation we can get the best out of our team especially from Doherty and Regulion and a front 3 what are allowed to solely focus on attacking
