'Tottenham are not convinced': Fabrizio Romano makes Spurs transfer claim
Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Spurs are “not convinced” about selling Steven Bergwijn this summer.
The Tottenham winger has been linked with a return to his homeland in recent weeks.
Dutch giants Ajax are reportedly interested in securing Bergwijn’s services.
However, Romano previously said new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo is “very happy” with the 23-year-old.
And now, the Italian journalist has claimed that Tottenham could well resist any advances for Bergwijn.
Romano said on the Here We Go Podcast: “About Steven Bergwijn, because at the moment we have a lot of rumours about Ajax, and it’s true that Ajax want the player.
“But at the moment Tottenham are not convinced about letting him go.
“So, I won’t be surprised if the player will be staying at the club next season.
“We can say that Bergwijn has chances to stay, and we will see.”
Can Spurs give Bergwijn game time he needs to make Oranje comeback?
Bergwijn became one of Jose Mourinho’s first signings when Spurs paid PSV Eindhoven around £27million for him in January last year.
However, the Dutchman was largely reduced to substitute appearances during his first full season in the Premier League.
As per the Daily Mail, Bergwijn is aware he needs regular game time if he is to force his way back into the Netherlands setup.
Bergwijn missed out on the Oranje squad for Euro 2020, but the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is on the horizon.
