Among the many reports from the Dutch media regarding Ajax’s interest in Steven Bergwijn we’ve been seeing this month, there was a time when it seemed like the Eredivisie giants were giving up on the signing.

However, according to new updates today, there should be one last attempt to sign the Tottenham Hotspur winger in this transfer window.

On De Telegraaf’s podcast, journalist Mike Verweij explains that Ajax have not admitted defeat, especially because the London side seem keen on finding a deal for Bergwijn’s departure in January.

“I think they will make a final attempt for Bergwijn,” said Verweij (via Soccer News).

“They have received signals from Spurs that he is still nominated to leave. The offer must then exceed twenty million.”

As financial director Susan Lenderink had been named as one of the issues why Ajax couldn’t afford the move, this situation may have changed as well.

“Now it seems that Overmars is a bit out of Lenderink’s grip. The last word on this has not yet been said.”

Despite being close to the exit door at Tottenham, Bergwijn was used by Antonio Conte in two important Premier League games lately, as he was brought on at the end of the match against Leicester City and played for 90 minutes in Sunday’s defeat against Chelsea. He has 15 appearances for the club this season.
