Erik ten Hag target set to beg for transfer away from Tottenham, claims journalist

It was reported over a week ago that new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was considering a move for Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn.

The Netherlands international was supposedly close to linking up with Ten Hag at Ajax in January but a deal never materialised.

Since then, the 24-year-old has been overlooked by Antonio Conte, with loan signing Dejan Kulusevski performing brilliantly for Spurs.

The Daily Mail record he could leave Spurs for around £20 million this summer, with clubs in Germany and France also monitoring his situation.

Bergwijn is still being linked with Ajax ahead of the summer transfer window, and De Telegraaf journalist Valentijn Drieessen believes he will be begging to get a move back to Holland.

“He has now also seen that a foreign adventure is not everything,” Driessen said on his podcast, as quoted by Caught Offside.

“Even if you score a few goals, you have no certainty of playing. He also wants to be in the Dutch national team.

“I think he wants to go back to Amsterdam on his knees.”
