Ajax are interested in signing Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn this summer


Ajax look to offer Steven Bergwijn an escape route from his troubles at Tottenham this summer but the north London club will demand the £27m they paid for misfiring winger

  • Steven Bergwijn is likely to leave Spurs this summer after falling out of favour 
  • The 23-year-old Dutch winger is attracting interest from Dutch side Ajax
  •  Spurs are likely to demand around £27million for the Holland international  
  • Bergwijn has set his sights on making Holland’s World Cup squad next year











Ajax continue to explore the possibility of signing of Steven Bergwijn this summer but Tottenham are reluctant to sell the winger.

Bergwijn became one of Jose Mourinho’s first signings when Spurs paid PSV Eindhoven around £27million for him in January last year.

The 23-year-old was largely reduced to substitute appearances during his first full season in the Premier League and is also attracting interest from the Bundesliga.

Tottenham, however, are keen for Bergwijn to start pre-season with Mourinho’s successor, which now looks likely to be Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs are expected to want their money back should Bergwijn depart north London, a fee that would represent a significant outlay for Ajax.

The Holland international is aware he requires regular game time in the hope of forcing a way back into Frank De Boer’s squad after missing out on the European Championship.

Bergwijn has set his sights on making the World Cup squad for the tournament in Qatar next year.
