According to a recent report, Daniel Levy has blocked the potential departure of Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn this summer after receiving a number of enquiries regarding the 23-year-old.
The report by The Athletic claimed that Tottenham have received multiple offers for Bergwijn ahead of the summer transfer window, with interested clubs wanting to take the Netherlands international on either a loan or permanent deal.
However, it is then claimed that the Spurs chairman has informed the interested parties that he has no intention of allowing the £73,000-per-week forward to leave the club, either permanently or on a temporary basis.
Is Levy right to want to keep hold of Bergwijn this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
Although Bergwijn has found game-time somewhat hard to come by at Tottenham this season, with the winger starting just 11 Premier League matches for the north London side in 2020/21, Monday’s news of Jose Mourinho’s sacking could be something of a saving grace for the 23-year-old, as well as a potential reason for Levy’s stance on the player’s future.
With Mourinho, who admitted that the £26.7m signing of Bergwijn was not his preferred transfer, now out of the picture, the winger is now presented with the opportunity to thrive at Tottenham under new management, something that Levy clearly backs him to do.
Also, with Alasdair Gold previously dubbing the Dutchman as “incredible” following his display in a 2-0 win over Arsenal last December, with a fresh start hopefully Bergwijn can once again get back to this level of performance in a Tottenham shirt in the not-too-distant future.
