Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be closing in on a deal to sign Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven.

According to De Telegraaf, Steven Bergwijn has decided that a move to Tottenham Hotspur is the ‘ideal’ next step for his career, after discussions with both Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy.

Bergwijn’s agent has reportedly spoken to the Tottenham duo, and they have assured him that their target would be well treated in North London.

Spurs appear to be closing on a deal for the PSV winger now, with the Dutch international keen to join.

Tottenham have practically agreed a fee with PSV now, according to the latest update on Holland, but the two clubs still need to work out the structure of the deal and over how long a period of time the fee will be paid over.

 

The price of the deal has not been confirmed yet, but Sky suggested PSV wanted £35 million for the speedy wide-man in the summer

If Bergwijn does move to Spurs, as expected, he could be an exciting signing for Mourinho’s side.

Bergwijn has been a dangerous player in Holland and, at the age of 22, still has plenty of time left to improve.

Bergwijn has scored five goals and claimed 10 assists for PSV this term, and if he could replicate those sort of figures at Spurs then he would be a brilliant addition.

The wide-man is most comfortable playing from the left-hand side, but he may have more chances of breaking into Tottenham’s team down the right.

Heung-Min Son is generally Tottenham’s first choice on the left-flank, and it is difficult to see the South Korean being dropped any time soon.

Spurs could yet bring in a striker following the arrival of Bergwijn, which means their attack could look very different by the end of the month.
