Steven Bergwijn does not want to delay his exit from Tottenham any longer with a move to Ajax firmly in his sights, according to De Telegraaf. 

The 24-year-old forward has struggled for consistency for the majority of his stint at Spurs since arriving at the club in January 2020. 

He recently stated his intentions to leave North London this summer, citing a desire to secure regular minutes with the World Cup approaching later this year (Algemeen Dagblad). 

Tottenham are demanding up to €25 million (£21.4m) to sanction an exit for the Netherlands international with Ajax set as his preferred destination (ESPN). 

And although there is plenty of time remaining in the transfer window, Bergwijn himself is keen on sealing a departure from Spurs as soon as possible. 

De Telegraaf has claimed he is continuing to press for a move to Ajax with other sides starting to take note of his availability following his strong displays on international duty. 

Although the report does not specify which clubs are in the running to land Bergwijn, it explains that he has a tentative five-year deal in place at Ajax should he join them this summer. 

Bergwijn is contracted with Spurs until June 2025 and featured infrequently for the club under Antonio Conte last term. He has made 83 appearances across two-and-a-half seasons scoring eight times (Transfermarkt).

Spurs Web Opinion 

Ajax continue to chase after Bergwijn and he is pretty set on joining them this summer so it looks to be a case of when a deal will be struck. 

Ajax’s interest has been pretty long-standing to the point where they could miss out on him if other parties join the conversation and move quicker than them.
