Steven Berghuis has enjoyed a great campaign with Feyenoord this season, managing 22 goals and 11 assists in all competitions.
According to De Volkskrant, the 28-year-old dreams of a ‘top transfer’ in the summer.
Former Tottenham Hotspur man Rafael van der Vaart has urged the forward to continue with the Eredivisie side rather than joining a club like Everton at this stage of his career.
Van der Vaart believes Berghuis’ place in the Netherlands squad could be in jeopardy, if he ends up with the Toffees and struggles to impress there.
“I think he should stay with Feyenoord. He is the man there, the team is built around him,” Van der Vaart said.
“Do you have to go to Everton when you are almost 29 or something? If you don’t play well there twice, they will set up a clumsy Englishman and you will be out of the picture, also with Oranje [national team].”
Van der Vaart is only using the Merseyside club as an example to back his argument on why Berghuis should not leave Feyenoord. Neither the Dutchman nor De Volkskrant are claiming that Carlo Ancelotti’s side are interested in the forward.
Mino Raiola, Berghuis’ representative, has also given his verdict on the Feyenoord star.
“He is a good guy who knows exactly what he wants. Maybe a late bloomer, but his potential is great and he is already the best player in the league. Not only in recent months, but already before that,” the agent explained.
