Tottenham Hotspur have rejected an offer for Ajax’s Steven Bergwijn, who is ready to let the Dutchman leave if he receives a higher offer.

However, Antonio Conte remained coy about his future and said he was a player he could “count on” as the club continued their pursuit of Wolves winger Adama Traore.

Bergwijn will be allowed to leave the club this window if their rating is met

The Eredivisie champions have submitted an unsuccessful bid of € 18million (£ 15million) according to Telegraaf and should come back with a second offer.

Signed from Dutch PSV for £ 25million in January 2020, Spurs are looking to collect as much money as possible.

Having scored just five goals since joining the club, Bergwijn hasn’t quite turned on the Premier League as many expected, but his current manager, Conte, is still keen to give him a chance when he returns from ‘a calf injury.

“Bergwijn, he knows very well what I think of him. I see him as a player who can play all three roles, as number 9 and number 10, “the Italian said at a press conference.

“During my time at Tottenham he was injured for a long time. But I showed him that when he’s in good physical condition, I gave him a chance.

“He’s a Tottenham player and he’s very close to coming back. After the game with Chelsea he can start a training session.

” I can count on him. He’s a player with different characteristics from Harry [Kane], [Heung-Min] Son and [Lucas] Moura is a player that we do not have in our team.

With Heung-Min Son out due to a hamstring injury, the club want to find a replacement before letting Bergwijn leave.

Someone who has been surveyed for some time now is Wolves winger Traore with talkSPORT understanding that a “formal offer is not too far away”.

Football correspondent Alex Crook told Jim White and Simon Jordan: “In terms of income, we spoke about a week ago about Spurs rekindling their interest in Adama Traore at Wolves.

“I don’t think a formal offer is too far away now, Traore will cost around £ 20million.”
