Steven Bergwijn has shone in the Eredivisie this season and could reportedly get a big-money move to Arsenal or Inter Milan.

Arsenal are in the race to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn, with Unai Emery’s side ‘constantly’ making checks on the highly-rated Dutchman according to FC Inter News.

It is no secret that Emery has made a goal-scoring winger a top priority in the summer transfer window and Bergwijn would certainly fit the bill. A skilful, speedy and clinical forward, he has 14 goals and 13 assists to his name in all competitions across 2018/19.

 

According to FC Inter News, Inter Milan’s sporting director Piero Ausilio met with the 21-year-old’s agent last week in an attempt to lure the Dutch international to the San Siro.

But the Nerrazzuri will face competition from Arsenal, who are apparently keeping a very close eye on his performances at reigning Eredivisie champions PSV.

FC Inter News reports that Mark Van Bommell’s side would demand around £36 million for Bergwijn.

As a result, Arsenal may be forced to sell a couple of fringe players to fund a deal for a player who could fill the void left by Alexis Sanchez in 2018, by providing a regular source of goals and assists from the wing.
