Tottenham transfer news: Louis van Gaal calls on Steven Bergwijn to join Ajax ‘as soon as possible’

The striker has often spoken of his desire to leave Spurs and again publicly asked to leave the club after a lack of first-team football.

Bergwijn, however, continues to impress for the Dutch national team and scored his fourth goal in as many games this year in their 4-1 Nations League win over Belgium.

Ajax made a bid for the former PSV striker in January but saw it turned down as Antonio Conte wanted to keep the 24-year-old in north London.

Yet the arrival of Dejan Kulusevki had already increased competition for places in Tottenham’s attack and the signing of Ivan Perisic gives Conte another option for the future, making it difficult to see where Bergwijn stands. integrated.

Keen to see one of his key players leave ahead of the 2022 World Cup, van Gaal said (via De Telegraaf’s Mike Verweij): “If it’s up to me, Steven Bergwijn could join Ajax as soon as possible.”
