Tottenham Hotspur Leading Race To Sign This Eredivisie Winger: What Will He Bring To North London?

According to a recent report by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur are leading the chase to secure the signature of Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven later this summer. The same source has also claimed that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a huge admirer of the Dutch talent with PSV expected to sell him for a fee around £35m in this offseason.

Bergwijn’s Remarkable Rise In Dutch Football

Bergwijn came through AFC Ajax’s youth system before he chose to join their rivals, PSV in the summer of 2011.  The Amsterdam born talent managed to gradually work his way up their youth ranks before establishing himself as a first-team starter at the Philips Stadium back in 2015.

The 21-year-old has put in a series of eye-catching displays for PSV during the recently concluded Eredivisie campaign. He has featured in 41 matches for the Dutch outfit this term, scoring 15 goals while providing 13 assists across all competitions. 

Bergwijn has already played for the Netherlands at every youth level from Under-17 onwards. Despite his tender age, he has managed to secure five international caps for Ronald Koeman’s Dutch senior team so far.

What Will The Dutch Starlet Bring To North London?

The Eredivisie prospect has blistering pace, which allows him to dribble with the ball quite effectively down the wide areas. He has also added a lot of goals and assists to his game this season which proves that he is improving with each year. The PSV playmaker seems like a player who is ready to take a step up to the highest level so a move to the Premier League might suit him this summer.

The addition of someone of Bergwijn’s potential will significantly bolster Pochettino’s attacking options in the future. However, the Dutch wonderkid might struggle to get into the Spurs first-team next season as he would have to compete with the likes of Delle Alli, Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura.

At the same time, having so much quality around him could help Bergwijn unlock his true potential and succeed in the top tier of England. Thus, it makes a lot of sense for Pochettino to consider recruiting the Dutch starlet ahead of the new season.
