Tottenham Hotspur: Reliable journalist issues Steven Bergwijn claim

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Reliable journalist issues Steven Bergwijn claim

Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Jack Pitt-Brooke has been speaking on The View From The Lane podcast to discuss the future of Steven Bergwijn in north London. 

The Dutch winger has had his future with the Lilywhites questioned recently having failed to make an impact in Antonio Conte’s side this season (via Transfermarkt).

Do you want Bergwijn to be sold this month?





Even before the Italian manager arrived in November, Bergwijn had found the transition to English football a real challenge, with just five goals to his name across all competitions for Spurs.

Having signed for Tottenham back in 2020 from Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven, it has been claimed the 24-year-old could be set for a return to the Dutch top flight, with Ajax interested and Spurs apparently willing to sell.

Reports have suggested Ajax have made an approach for the Spurs winger which has been rejected by the north Londoners, and Pitt-Brooke had the following to say on where he feels Bergwijn’s future lies:

“At the moment, I expect him to stay, although that situation could change. But yeah, if Bergwijn can get fully fit again, I think Conte would like the option of playing him up front.

“I do think the view at Spurs is that Ajax haven’t offered enough money for Bergwijn yet, but also, Tottenham do think that Bergwijn would be quite hard to replace – he can play up front or on the wing, he’s got a fair bit of decent experience, he’s dangerous. I don’t think they think it’s necessarily in their interest to let him go this month, even though he hasn’t played an awful lot recently.”

TIF Thoughts on Steven Bergwijn’s future at Spurs…

We think Spurs sit in a really strong position over Bergwijn’s future this month despite failing to bring in any new faces themselves.

Bergwijn really has not impressed since arriving in north London, with just a handful of goals and assists to his name for the Lilywhites.

However, we do not feel Spurs should not be in any real rush to sell the Dutchman this month given he still has over three years remaining on his current deal with the club.

And with all the issues teams are experiencing at the moment with game postponements, we do not think it would be wise of Spurs to sell a player for the sake of it if they did not have a replacement lined up.
