A target for Ajax Amsterdam throughout the January transfer window, Steven Bergwijn eventually stayed at Tottenham Hotspur, as the Eredivisie side never agreed to the asking price set by Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici.
Erik ten Hag had made it clear he wanted the Spurs forward to help his side secure the Eredivisie title this season, but there were limits to what the Dutch side wanted to spend, and so a transfer never took place.
Since then, things have changed a bit at Ajax, with Marc Overmars no longer the director of football there, and we’ll have to wait and see if the Tottenham man remains a target for the club, especially if their manager also leaves for pastures anew.
Should that be the case, another club are taking an interest in Bergwijn, and that’s Milan in Serie A.
It’s already been mentioned in the past, and Gazzetta dello Sport bring it up again on Tuesday, explaining that with the Italians going after Sven Botman, currently at Lille, a route to the Spurs winger could also open up, since they share the same agency: Muy Manero.
With just two years left on his contract, a purchase ‘has relative costs’, which could help, since Stefano Pioli wants someone to bolster his wings.
The newspaper go as far as saying that those in charge of transfers at Milan ‘have already started this matter’, as they know ‘Fabio Paratici will have to change a lot of faces next season’ at Tottenham.
No fee is mentioned for Bergwijn at this point, but considering Spurs wanted somewhere around €25m for him in January, something similar could be expected in the summer.
