Report: Spurs could go from ‘front-runners’ to missing out on transfer target

Tottenham Hotspur’s summer transfer activity kicked off in somewhat dramatic fashion when two new signings were announced on the very same day.

On July 2nd, Spurs confirmed the signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United in a £10million deal in the morning and followed it up in the afternoon with the club record capture of Tanguy Ndombele who arrived in North London for £55million (talkSPORT).

While there has been plenty of rumours of other potential arrivals, nothing has yet to materialise.

One player who was linked with a move to Spurs earlier in the window was PSV Eindhoven’s Steven Bergwijn with Mauricio Pochettino’s side said to be leading the race to land the winger (Sky Sports).

The 21-year-old is said to have caught the eye of Spurs when lining up against them in the Champions League match at Wembley in November.

Frustratingly, Spurs could now be set to miss out on the Dutch international who scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists in 40 games for PSV last season (Sky Sports).

Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf report that Sevilla have now entered the race for Bergwijn.


While PSV are yet to receive an official approach from the La Liga side, Spurs should be monitoring the situation.

We are desperately lacking creativity out wide and Bergwijn would comfortably add some pace and the ability to put the ball in the back of the net – something which Erik Lamela has failed to do season after season.
