On January 8th, Voetbal International reported West Ham United have identified Ajax’s Steven Bergwijn as a target to bolster their attack and could make an offer soon to secure his services in the winter market.

It was also stated the Amsterdam club could aim to recover a large part of the €31m they paid to buy him from Tottenham Hotspur in 2022.

West Ham’s desire to sign the 26-year-old is backed up by Voetbal Primeur, who say ‘there is interest from the Premier League’.

Apart from David Moyes’ side, the forward is also in the sights of some unnamed Saudi Arabian clubs.

The Netherlands international’s deal lasts until 2027 and the outlet states the Eredivisie side would prefer to retain him. At the same time, they are also aware his sale can help them earn ‘many millions’.

Bergwijn has scored eight goals and registered four assists from 21 games this season and that includes an assist in Ajax’s 3-2 win over Go Ahead Eagles on Sunday. After the tie, the West Ham target ruled out a move in the ongoing window.

“I am happy here at Ajax. My family, my children too. I have no reason to leave,” he said, as relayed by Voetbal International.

Moyes has been without Michail Antonio since November and Lucas Paquetá has joined the Hammers’ injury list. West Ham would be in the market for a attacker and with Bergwijn insisting he wants to continue at Ajax, they may have to look elsewhere this month.
