Tottenham are asking for up to €25 million (£21m) to sanction a sale for Steven Bergwijn, with Ajax named as the winger’s preferred destination, according to ESPN.
The 24-year-old is looking set to leave Spurs this summer in search of regular game time having seen appearances come at a premium under Antonio Conte, something he openly admitted this week (Algemeen Dagblad).
Since arriving at the club from PSV Eindhoven in January 2020, Bergwijn has scored just eight goals in 83 appearances, while he made just four starts in the Premier League last season (Transfermarkt).
A return to Bergwijn’s native Netherlands has been mooted in recent weeks with 90min noting Ajax as the most interested party after attempting to acquire him in the January transfer window.
ESPN has now claimed Bergwijn wants to secure a switch to the Eredivisie champions, but can only leave Tottenham if they received a bid of at least £21 million this summer.
The Dutch side were also unsuccessful with two separate attempts to lure Bergwijn away during the January transfer window (The Sun).

Bergwijn is likely to secure a move to away over the summer, but it looks to be a tricky deal to complete with Ajax not offering quite enough to match Tottenham’s asking price.
Spurs do have the advantage with the contract length also on their side so they can decide the value accordingly, but we could see the deal structured in a way that suits both parties.
