According to De Telegraaf, Ajax are now set to make an improved offer for Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn.
Bergwijn has publicly expressed his intention to leave Spurs this summer (AD) after struggling for game time for much of the 2021/22 campaign, and the North Londoners are thought to value the winger at £25.6m (Fabrizio Romano).
Ajax are said to be keen on taking the winger back to the Eredivisie but The Daily Mirror reported last month that the Dutch club’s first offer for the 24-year-old had been rejected by Spurs.
Journalist Mike Verweij claimed on De Telegraaf’s podcast Kick-Off podcast last week that Ajax’s latest offer for Bergwijn was worth €17.5m plus €5m in add-ons (£15m plus £4.3m), which was short of Tottenham’s valuation.
De Telegraaf have now revealed that the Dutch club are set to make an improved offer for Bergwijn as they are about to receive a cash boost from Sebastian Haller’s impending sale.

It seems like joining Ajax is Bergwijn’s preference, which is understandable as he might want to return to the comforts of the Eredivisie ahead of the World Cup in November. However, Spurs will hold out for their valuation to be met as there is not likely to be any shortage of interest in the winger.
