According to Dutch Telegraaf, Steven Bergwijn is on the verge of leaving PSV Eindhoven this January. All parties have agreed on a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, who are willing to splash €30 million for the services of the winger. Bergwijn could become the second player to join Spurs this month, following the footsteps of Gedson Fernandes, who joined on loan from SL Benfica.
One of the best attackers in the Eredivisie
A product of the Ajax youth academy, Bergwijn initially moved to rivals PSV at the early age of 14. He gradually rose the youth ranks before being promoted to the senior side in 2015, at the age of just 18. But, it wasn’t until the 2017/18 campaign, when the youngster really made an impact in the Eredivisie.
Indeed, Bergwijn was involved in 19 league goals in 32 appearances in what was his breakout season. Since then, he has become a consistent player in the league, having been involved in 64 goals in just 112 Eredivisie appearances. Last season, in particular, Bergwijn scored 14 goals and mustered 12 assists, helping PSV finish second in the league.
And the Dutchman has continued his excellent run of form in the ongoing campaign, netting five goals while registering ten assists. Although PSV have struggled to keep up with the likes of Ajax, AZ and Feyenoord this season, Bergwijn’s contributions have been quite critical in helping them stay afloat in the top five.
Why Bergwijn could be an excellent signing for Spurs
As mentioned earlier, Bergwijn has become one of the best attackers in the Eredivisie, thanks to his consistent performances over the past couple of seasons. He can, therefore, add more bite into the Tottenham Hotspur attack, which could be helpful for the push to the top four.
Indeed, Spurs have scored only six goals in seven competitive matches since the turn of the year. Without the injured Harry Kane, both Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min have appeared clumsy in front of goal. Bergwijn’s addition, in that regard, should improve Tottenham’s productivity in the final third.
Another critical aspect of Bergwijn’s gameplay is that he can play anywhere across the final third, including the number nine position. That means he can allow Jose Mourinho to deploy the duo of Son and Moura in their natural wide-attacking role, where they can certainly improve the club’s overall supply.
If we consider Bergwijn’s scoring record, the Dutchman is clearly a better fit than Moura or Son in the number nine slot. And at the age of just 22, he has time on his side and could potentially become an asset for the club within the coming years, thus making him an ideal target for Tottenham.
