According to De Telegraaf, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in PSV Eindhoven attacker Steven Bergwijn this summer, and are prepared to battle Arsenal for his signature.
The 20-year-old scored eight times and registered 11 assists in 36 appearances in all competitions for PSV during the 2017-18 campaign.
Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move for the attacker, but Tottenham are also believed to be in the hunt ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Valued at £7.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, it is unlikely that Spurs would have to break the bank for a player who has scored three times in eight appearances for Netherlands Under-21s.
That said, PSV are certainly well within their rights to ask for big money for Bergwijn, especially considering that the youngster has a contract until 2021.
The Tottenham fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation, and it would be fair to say that not too many are convinced when it comes to Bergwijn’s potential arrival.

We face a lot of competition for the signature of 19-year old Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn as Arsenal, Liverpool, Westham and Bournemouth are all also tracking the PSV wonderkid. The youngster hit 8 goals and 11 assists in 32 appearances last season. [De Telegraaf] #COYS #THFC pic.twitter.com/saj1ChevXR
