Tottenham look set for a number of changes before the January transfer window closes and Steven Bergwijn could be the first to leave. The Holland international was signed by Jose Mourinho just two years ago for a fee in the region of £25.4million.

There was plenty of excitement about his arrival with fans hopeful he could strike up a strong partnership with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

And he made an instant impact on his Premier League debut, scoring in an impressive 2-0 win over Manchester City.

Bergwijn scored three in his first six league games but soon fell out off favour under Mourinho.

The 24-year-old failed to live up to expectations in his first full season with just one league goal, starting only 13 top flight matches.

Nuno Espirito Santo brought Bergwijn back in from the cold to start this campaign, but he’s failed to impress Conte since the Italian took charge.

The former Inter Milan boss admitted last month that he was looking to make some big changes to his Tottenham squad in the January transfer window.

Bergwijn has seemingly been identified as someone Conte is happy to let go, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Daniel Levy is said to be in agreement with Conte, only if the right offer comes in.


Bergwijn’s availability has alerted the attention of Ajax, with Dutch publication Telegraaf stating a £15m bid has been sent to Tottenham.

However, the report adds that Tottenham immediately rejected the offer as they’re holding out for a bigger fee.

Conte appeared to go back on his word last week when speaking about potential January transfers, admitting any changes won’t resolve issues at the club.

“If someone thinks the transfer market can solve the situation… First of all, in January it’s very difficult to buy. Very, very difficult,” he said.

“Then you have to see if there’s the possibility to buy players that you need.

“I think we have to continue to work hard in the way we’re doing and continue to improve the level of our players.

“Then if there is some opportunities and the club is convinced by these opportunities to improve the team… But I repeat, I don’t see in the transfer window the resolution of our problems.

“The resolution of our problems now is to work and improve all many aspects of our squad. I repeat there is a lot of job to do.

“If you think if you buy one or two players and you solve the situation, you are not right.”
