Telegraph: ‘in the main agreement’ with Bergwijn, but Ajax does not go through

Steven Bergwijn hopes to know where he will play next season before the end of this Nations League cycle. According to De Cceit, however, his situation is complicated: the Tottenham Hotspur forward is followed by multiple Premier League clubs, while Ajax ‘excels in indecision’.
It is well known that Ajax has tried to bring in Bergwijn before. However, Tottenham asks for the top prize — amounts between twenty and thirty million euros do the rounds — and at the moment it is by no means certain whether Ajax can and will pay the desired asking price. According to De Cceit, Ajax has ‘a major agreement’ about a five-year contract, but it is questionable what this will be worth.
Bergwijn excelled against Belgium on Friday and confirms to the morning newspaper that he is being followed by more clubs. The competition from the ‘top of the Premier League’ is obviously bad news for Ajax, De Cceit also knows. ‘That it was advisable to conclude a deal with Tottenham Hotspur before Belgium-Netherlands was a football ABC, to which technical manager Gerry Hamstra and his right-hand man Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, but especially Financial Director Susan Lenderink and the Supervisory Board passed by. ‘
Mountain wine has been playing for Tottenham Hotspur since the beginning of 2020, which then took him over from PSV for thirty million euros. Since then, he has played 83 matches in North London service, but he has never been an undisputed basic force. Bergwijn therefore makes no secret of the fact that he wants to leave as soon as possible, with a view to the World Cup coming autumn.
