‘A transfer is probably not far off’ – Journalist claims Spurs have spoken to player’s agent

Tottenham Hotspur look set to be active in this summer’s transfer window after nearly 18 months without signing a new face.

Christian Eriksen’s revelation earlier today that he would like to leave the club for a fresh challenge will also have Spurs scrambling for a potential replacement for the Danish playmaker (Ekstra Bladet).

One position which Spurs have been desperately lacking quality for some time is out wide, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are certainly crying out for a winger with pace who also has the ability to provide a killer final ball or find the back of the net himself.

Erik Lamela continues to be a disappointment and has failed to make an impact despite being at the club since August 2013, while others including Clinton N’Jie and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou have been a spectacular failure.

One player who could be about to change all of that is PSV Eindhoven’s Steven Bergwijn.  Last week Dutch news outlet Voetbal International claimed that Spurs were set to make a bid.

Earier today, journalist Rik Elfrink of the Dutch-based Algemeen Dagblad newspaper has revealed that Spurs have already held discussions with Bergwijn’s agent over a possible move.

Elfrink believes that a move is on the horizon for the 21-year-old, despite the fact that PSV would deny that an offer has been made.

“Spurs are following him,” Elfrink told Sky Sports.

“They have talked to his agent and it has been said that there has already been an offer of 40m euros. PSV deny that, but a transfer is probably not far off. Bergwijn is an incredible talent but he still has a lot of potential to improve, especially in front of goal because sometimes he still loses his nerve.”

“But this guy is really, really strong. If you look at his legs, you can see his muscles. I think it would be normal for him to make transfer this summer after the Nations League,” he added.
