De Telegraaf have revealed that Ajax have made a new offer to snap up Steven Bergwijn after failing in their pursuit of the Tottenham winger in January.

Bergwijn has struggled for game time under Antonio Conte at Spurs and is one of the players who the club are reportedly willing to listen to offers for (Evening Standard).

The 24-year-old admitted in an interview with Dutch publication AD back in April that he is keen to leave the North London club in the summer in search of regular game time.

Ajax tried to sign the winger during the January transfer window but the club were unable to pay Spurs’ asking price of around €25m (£20.8m) for the former PSV Eindhoven star (The Athletic).

De Telegraaf have now revealed that Ajax’s new chief financial offer Susan Lenderink has taken over the responsibility of getting a deal for Bergwijn over the line.

The Eredivisie giants have allegedly made an offer of around €20m (£17.1m) for the Spurs star in the hope of bringing him back to Holland.

Ajax are also said to have offered the Netherlands international a five-year contract at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Spurs Web Opinion

I expect this deal to progress quickly. It is unlikely that Spurs are going to hold out for a bigger fee, particularly given that they are in a hurry to get rid of players to free up space in the squad.

I believe Bergwijn will be keen to return to the Eredivisie in order to cement his spot in the Netherlands side ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.
