For Tottenham Hotspur, links with Steven Bergwijn are nothing new. The Mirror reported a year ago this month that the North London giants were interested in the highly-rated PSV Eindhoven winger.

And it seems that Bergwijn is still right at the top of Tottenham’s transfer wish-list. According to TEAMtalk, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are planning a double raid on the current Eredivisie champions with Bergwijn and central midfielder Jorrit Hendrix, who are valued at a combined £100 million, understood to be of interest.

 

But what would Bergwijn bring to Spurs? Well, it is not an exaggeration to suggest that the 20-year-old could be the closest thing Tottenham would have to their very own Eden Hazard.

Chelsea’s number 10 is arguably the greatest footballer anywhere in Europe right now – and Bergwijn’s talent, skill-set and potential certainly draws comparisons with a young Hazard.

The Dutch international has taken his game to a whole new level in the opening weeks of the 2018/19 season, scoring five times in 10 games in all competitions including one in the crucial Champions League qualifier against BATE Borisov.

Bergwijn’s end product has improved notably under new PSV boss Mark Van Bommel in recent months while his speed, skill and directness makes him one of the most exciting young attacking talents anywhere in Europe.

Though Spurs will have to pay big to give Tottenham fans their own version of Hazard.
