Steven Bergwijn has been involved in a difficult period for Tottenham since he arrived in January, but there is no doubt he’s been a shining light and already shown enough to suggest he will end up being a serious bargain.
Spurs signed the attacker at the end of the January window for £27million (BBC) from Dutch top-flight club PSV Eindhoven, where he had made a name for himself as an exciting young winger.
The 22-year-old was given barely anytime to settle in a new country following his arrival in North London, as injuries saw manager Jose Mourinho quickly rely on him to hit the ground running.
He scored a stunning memorable goal on his debut for the club in a Premier League win over Manchester City and that’s one of two goals he’s managed in seven appearances so far in a Spurs shirt.
Despite playing in new surroundings and with an out-of-form tea, the Holland international has been a real positive on the ball and there are plenty of signs he will be big success.
Bergwijn has been a real creative threat in Spurs games without key injured duo Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, so he should be even more lively when he gets to play with them.
The January addition has an eye for pass in the final third, plus he can give the team genuine width and torment full-backs with his raw pace like an old traditional wide player.
His £27million transfer could end up being a steal considering the inflated market right now and he looks like someone with an immense work-rate that can quickly become a fan favourite.
