Tottenham Hotspur have agreed on a fee of £21.5million with Ajax for Steven Bergwijn, according to The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare on Twitter.
It is claimed that the final details of the transfer are being agreed upon between both clubs ahead of the deal being confirmed.
Tottenham are said to be hoping to bring in another striker before Bergwijn returns to the Netherlands, which is expected to take place on or after July 1st.
Bergwijn had previously stated his desire to leave north London this summer in order to play regular first team football (Algemeen Dagblad).
The Dutch giants are looking to bring in another forward with Sebastien Haller set to join Borussia Dortmund (Fabrizio Romano).
Bergwijn experienced the disappointment of being overlooked by Louis van Gaal for last summer’s Euro 2020 tournament but has come back into favour, showing some impressive form in recent matches.
On Bergwijn, understand that fee of €25m (£21.5m) has been agreed but final details are being sorted.
Expectation is that deal will go through on or after July 1 and that #THFC are hoping to bring in another forward before they sell Bergwijn.

At 24, Bergwijn needs to be playing regular first-team football if he expects to be representing Holland at the World Cup this summer and I would not be surprised if Van Gaal has made that clear to the forward.
He will leave with some fond memories, especially his dramatic late brace at Leicester last season which ended up proving to be pivotal in our return to the Champions League.
