Tottenham Hotspur: Italian source shares big Steven Bergwijn exit update

Tottenham Hotspur: Italian source shares big Steven Bergwijn exit update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per Calciomercato, there has been a big update on the future of Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn amid the drama surrounding manager Antonio Conte.

The Lowdown: Bergwijn on the periphery?

Despite recently scoring twice in stoppage time to hand Spurs a memorable 3-2 win away to Leicester City in the Premier League, the Netherlands international has started just once since then.

This lack of opportunities also comes after Conte labelled Bergwijn an ‘important player’ with ‘good fitness’, perhaps bringing into question why he hasn’t been selected more.

The 24-year-old has appeared off the bench for brief cameos in three out of Tottenham’s last four top-flight matches, but this may not be enough to keep him satisfied, with big news emerging from Italy.

The Latest: Bergwijn ‘could decide to pack his suitcase’…

According to Calciomercato, Bergwijn could now ‘decide to pack his suitcase’ and quit Spurs in the summer, as he looks ‘completely lost’ in north London.

Should Spurs sell Bergwijn?

Definitely

No, we need him as an option

Indeed, calling the attacker a Tottenham ‘diamond that has stopped shining‘, the report went on to reveal the Lilywhites’ stance over a potential sale.

Spurs are apparently ‘ready to settle’ for around €18m-€20m (£15m-£16.6m) if any clubs wish to purchase Bergwijn later this year.

The Verdict: Right call?

We believe that selling Bergwijn would be a mistake by Spurs, given that he can play as a makeshift centre-forward and still has plenty of years ahead of him.

If given an extended starting run in the team, something not yet offered to him by Conte, there is every chance that he could impress and become a useful player, with ex-Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo certainly a big fan.

The Portuguese hailed Bergwijn as a ‘very talented’ and ‘unique’ player inside Tottenham’s squad during his tenue at the club last autumn, and Conte should attempt to truly unearth the Lilywhites ‘diamond’ towards the end of this season.
