Spurs fans were delighted to hear that PSV want just €30-33 million (£25-28 million) for Steven Bergwijn.
According to Dutch journalist Rik Elfrink (via Daily Hotspur), the Eredivisie side are willing to let the 22-year-old leave for less than £30 million this month. The Dutch winger has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs over the last few days and reportedly travelled to London over the weekend to push through a deal instead of playing in PSV’s match against FC Twente.
The versatile forward has been in excellent form for PSV so far this season; averaging an impressive 7.28 rating and has featured in a wide range of positions; including striker and central-midfield. Jose Mourinho’s side are set to be without star striker Harry Kane until April after the England international suffered a hamstring injury, so perhaps Bergwijn could be utilised in that position should he complete his move to the North London club ahead of the deadline.
Should Spurs just pay up for Bergwijn?

Now PSV and bergwijn have fallen out it’s weakened their hand. They won’t get €33m, more towards €27m imo. Just accept that please because levy will take it to the last hour and none of us can be bothered with that.

These Spurs fans clearly feel that Daniel Levy should just pay up for Bergwijn and will be hoping to see his signing confirmed in the next few days.
What do we think?
Bergwijn has impressed so far this season contributing five goals and 10 assists but he has no Premier League experience, so this could prove to be a risky transfer for Spurs. However, the Dutch international is just 22-years-old so it could well prove to be a shrewd signing if Levy can agree on a fee with PSV before Friday’s deadline.
