Tottenham could have a potentially devastating combination on their hands

Tottenham Hotspur officially completed the signing of winger Steven Bergwijn on Wednesday.

The Netherlands international has joined the north Londoners for a reported fee of £27 million (BBC Sport) from PSV Eindhoven.

He is the club’s third signing this January after Gedson Fernandes joined on loan last week from Benfica, and Giovani Lo Celso turned his loan from Real Betis permanent.

Bergwijn has arrived to quite the fanfare, with many fans seemingly impressed by his contributions of 31 goals and 41 assists in 149 appearances for PSV.

Those are some fairly impressive numbers for a player who doesn’t even turn 22 until October.

Certainly, Bergwijn is a player with excellent promise and potentially, he and Heung-min Son could cause defenders nightmares together in the final third.

 

TBR’s view – Son and Bergwijn’s pace a huge weapon

Bergwijn is known for his electric speed and dribbling, which also happen to be two of the £22 million signing’s (BBC Sport) top attributes.

Opposition defenders could be in for a torrid time coming up against the pair.

When Harry Kane comes back, which may not be until next season, the Spurs wide areas are going to be very strong with those two in there.

Both love to carry the ball, with Bergwijn making on average 2.5 dribbles per 90 (WhoScored) so far this term and Son also making 2.5.

Both players can also interchange and play on the opposite flank if needs be, and there really is just huge potential for them to cause damage with their mobility and, of course, their eye for goal.
