Report: Antonio Conte could consider using £27m Tottenham attacker in swap deal this summer
Steven Bergwijn could leave Tottenham in a swap deal this summer having struggled for gametime under Antonio Conte.
The Telegraph report that the Dutchman could be offered to clubs in a swap deal as Conte looks to reshape his squad when the transfer window opens.
He could also depart in a straight sale, having come close to leaving in the January window, amid links with Dutch champions elect Ajax.
It was reported last month that some at Tottenham feel Bergwijn should have gone in the winter, which surely increases his chances of leaving in the summer.
Bergwijn could leave Tottenham in a swap deal
Their report reads: “Steven Bergwijn has spoken of his frustration at a lack of game time.
“Spurs could listen to offers for the Dutch winger or include him in swap deals.
“Harry Winks and Lucas Moura are others who could attract interest from other clubs.“
Bergwin cost Spurs £27 million (BBC) when he arrived during Jose Mourinho’s reign and it does not seem likely he would raise close to that now.
He could help Spurs get some money off a target they really want as he seeks to go somewhere else and reignite his career.
It has also been reported that Spurs are looking into using Giovani Lo Celso as a part-swap to land Pau Torres from Villarreal, where the Argentine is currently on loan.
That means it looks like it is an approach Spurs are looking into to reshape their squad without spending huge sums of money.
But player swap deals are always harder in reality than they are on paper and there are lots of moving parts, even more than with a normal transfer.
