Ajax are planning to move for Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn on a loan or permanent deal should the club sell David Neres, according to De Telegraaf journalist Valentijn Driessen. 

Bergwijn, 24, has struggled to make an impact for long periods since joining Spurs in January last year with the majority of his stint also being hampered by injuries. 

However, the winger has now been linked with a move back to his native Netherlands, with Driessen hinting that Ajax have shortlisted him as a transfer target should the club offload Brazilian forward Neres. 

The Dutch side could be looking to bring in Bergwijn as a direct replacement, but would be happy to make either a loan or permanent signing. 

Neres is still under contract until the summer of 2023, however the report adds Ajax are looking to cash in on the winger in the coming weeks when the January transfer window opens. 

Speaking on the situation on Veronica Inside, Driessen said: “They [Ajax] are also working on bringing in Bergwijn, that is also renting. If Neres leaves, you must have another player for that. That should be Bergwijn.” 

Spurs Web Opinion 

While Bergwijn could very well turn things around at Spurs, there may be some figures at the club that may be looking to take the loss and cash in on him should a permanent offer come through. It has been a tough stint for him and he’s had opportunities at points, but it hasn’t worked out so far.
