On Monday, Ajax Amsterdam made a first offer to Tottenham to repatriate Steven Bergwijn.

The Eredivisie side have been after the Dutchman for quite some time now, and his situation in London has given them the chance to finally strike a deal, but only at the right price.

The first attempt of €18m (£15m) was pushed back by Spurs, but that doesn’t mean they are going to give up so easily.

One of the key elements to getting a deal over the line was the sale of David Neres, which is now in the process of being done, as Shakhtar Donetsk have decided to purchase the Brazilian.

That should give Ajax a bit more wiggle room, and De Telegraaf believe a deal should eventually get done for Bergwijn.

They state ‘the aim to upgrade’ on Neres ‘is the reason why Ajax are now fully targeting’ the Dutch forwards, and while the first offer of €18m ‘was rejected’, ‘both Spurs and Ajax are hopeful’ an agreement will be reached.

That’s good news for all parties involved, but it was made clear on Monday that the player would only consider a move back to the Eredivisie when the two clubs had solved the matter of the transfer fee.
