As per an update by reliable reporter Dan Kilpatrick of The Evening Standard, an exit update has come out of Tottenham Hotspur involving winger Steven Bergwijn.
The Lowdown: Conte makes ‘evaluations’…
As he recently admitted to the press, Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has been making his squad ‘evaluation’ for this January transfer window as he decides who could stay and leave north London this month.
As relayed by reporter Kilpatrick, Conte has ‘already‘ made completed a thorough assessment of the Spurs team with decisions now made on who he can and cannot trust.
The Latest: Spurs could now sell Bergwijn…
According to The Evening Standard journalist, Spurs, Conte and managing director Fabio Paratici are now ‘open to offers’ for Bergwijn as well as midfielder Dele Alli.
The duo could be allowed to leave north London this month but Tottenham’s manager has apparently ‘ruled out’ an exit for midfielder Harry Winks.
The Verdict: Big update?
The Netherlands international only recently dazzled in a Man of the Match display during Tottenham’s 2-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final win over bitter rivals West Ham before succumbing to injury, so this news could come as surprising.
Bergwijn’s individual brilliance propelled Conte’s side into the League Cup semis where they take on Chelsea this evening and that wasn’t his only good showing this season.
Under former boss Nuno Espirito Santo, the 24-year-old shined at the start of 2021/2022 with the ex-Lilywhites manager hailing him as ‘fantastic’ and a ‘unique’ player within the squad (via TEAMtalk).
As Conte decides who he can and can’t trust with his evaluations made, we are surprised to see Bergwijn on the ‘for sale’ list.
