According to a report by TEAMtalk last month, Tottenham Hotspur have been hugely impressed by PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn and are considering making a move for the 21-year-old.

The report says that Spurs have switched their attentions away from Ajax duo Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, who are valued at around £100m, and they are instead keen on a pair from another Eredivisie side in Bergwijn and Jorrit Hendrix.

The former has certainly been in impressive form for PSV so far this season having scored five goals and provided a further four assists in 13 appearances in all competitions, meaning he now has 15 goals and 19 assists in 91 outings for them in total.

His showings earned him his first full Netherlands international call-up earlier this month following his bright start to the campaign, and manager Ronald Koeman decided to name him in the starting line-up for the massive UEFA Nations League fixture against Germany in Amsterdam on Saturday.

It was a huge opportunity for the 21-year-old and while his nation ran out remarkable 3-0 winners against one of their oldest and biggest rivals, he didn’t have the impact that he and Koeman would have hoped that he would have.

The attacker failed to have a single shot or produce a single cross against the 2014 world champions who exited the 2018 World Cup at the group stage, while he only made one key pass in his 67 minutes on the pitch before he was replaced, as per WhoScored.

In that time he had just 27 touches in total and failed to make the most of the ball with a passing accuracy of just under 67%, showing that not only is he not ready to be a regular starter for his country right now, but also that he isn’t ready for a move to a club like Tottenham Hotspur where the pressure will be on him to produce consistently.
