Report: West Ham make contact over signing former Spurs attacker let go by Conte

According to a report in De Telegraaf, West Ham United are ready to offer former Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn a route back to the Premier League.

Bergwijn has flattered to deceive since making a €31.25m (£27m) move from Spurs to Ajax in the summer of 2022.

Although the winger has posted some decent numbers so far this season (five goals and two assists in 10 Eredivisie games), there has been some speculation over recent weeks that the Dutch club could offload him to Saudi Arabia in January (Voetbal Zone).

Premier League return on the cards for Bergwijn

If De Telegraaf’s latest update is to be believed, Bergwijn could soon be back in England, with West Ham said to be plotting a move for the winger.

The report explains that the Hammers have reached out to the 26-year-old’s camp to discuss a potential switch to the London Stadium in January.

The outlet adds that while the East London club have not contacted Ajax, the Eredivisie side are aware of their interest and would be willing to cash in on Bergwijn for €40m (£34.7m).

Spurs Web Opinion

Bergwijn did quite well at Spurs whenever he got opportunities (which were few and far between under Conte) and he certainly showed that he is more than good enough for the Premier League. 

David Moyes likes attackers who are quick, strong and have a good engine, which is why it is not surprising that the Hammers are considering a move for the former Tottenham man.
