PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that Steven Bergwijn has been allowed to travel to England to complete a transfer, with Tottenham reportedly in talks with him.
Dutch side PSV have confirmed (official website) that the 22-year-old has been given “permission” from them to visit England to try complete a move to an unnamed club, as he missed training with them on Tuesday morning.
Sky Sports reported on Monday that the attacker had arrived in London to have a medical with Spurs ahead of a potential move.
The report explained that Jose Mourinho’s team are still in discussions over a transfer for him, but that personal terms are not expected to be an issue.
Bergwijn’s potential move to North London appears to be gathering some momentum and he would be an exciting addition to the Premier League.
The versatile attacker has six goals and 13 assists in 29 games across all competitions this campaign for PSV.
He is a rapid left-winger by trade, but can also play anywhere across the frontline with his trickery and speed.
Bergwijn isn’t the natural centre-forward that Spurs need to try sign before the January window shuts, but he’s an exciting talent that will add more firepower going forward.
The Holland internatonal has been a consistent performer in recent years since coming through the PSV academy and looks ready for a big money move.
It looks like a switch to the Premier League is now firmly on the cards and Spurs just need to finalise a deal for him.
It will be intriguing to see how Mourinho slots him into the starting XI and his arrival could be bad news for some current Spurs stars.
