Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Sports reporter makes Steven Bergwijn claim

Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Sports reporter makes Steven Bergwijn claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking to GiveMeSport, journalist Michael Bridge of Sky Sports has shared what he knows on the future of Steven Bergwijn at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Lowdown: Bergwijn on the move?

As per The Times, Spurs’ winger is being heavily linked with a north London exit at the moment despite being a key player under ex-boss Nuno Espirito Santo at the very start of the campaign.

The Times believe that Bergwijn could now be one of the players who may leave in January alongside defender Joe Rodon.

Manager Antonio Conte recently confirmed he was making squad evaluations ahead of the winter window as the Dutchman now becomes the latest player who may well move away amid Ajax’s interest.

The Latest: Bridge makes claim…

Speaking to GMS, this is what Bridge had to say on the matter, sharing what he knows from ‘very good sources’.

“I know he’s maybe going to Ajax in January, I don’t know, has someone said something? Very good sources in Holland are saying that Ajax will look to get him in January or does Conte genuinely see something in him?”

The Verdict: Play him?

Lauded as ‘very talented’ and ‘unique’ by former boss Nuno, Bergwijn also made a big impression when first arriving at Tottenham – particularly against Manchester City on his debut.

The 24-year-old, if not for his consistent injuries, would arguably have made more progress in a Spurs shirt by now – as evident by how well he started this campaign before returning from international duty with a knock.

Despite the January exit rumours, there has been talk of Conte turning to Bergwijn as a makeshift striker as he aims to create an ‘open door’ environment at Tottenham akin to Gareth Southgate’s England (London World).

As his first winter window looms, it will certainly be interesting to see what Conte elects to do with his winger.
