AFC Ajax are looking to bring a player back to Holland this summer, although it would currently look a little unlikely to happen at this moment in time.
Steven Bergwijn is rumoured to be of interest to the Amsterdam giants this summer, although whether Tottenham Hotspur decide to let him go after just 18 months is something that remains to be seen at the moment.
According to information by De Telegraaf’s Valentijn Driessen, (via ESPN), Ajax are keen on taking the winger back to Holland, although there is said to be a problem with the price that both parties would be willing to do a deal at.
It is claimed that the Eredivisie side will have around £13 million to be able to spend on acquiring him, although Spurs are going to want to receive a fee in the region of around £21.5 million, at the very least.
This would suggest that there is already a difference of around £8.5 million between the two clubs, which could be a bridge too far for either of them to cross if Bergwijn was to decide to want to return to his homeland after a spell in London.
Of course, his time at Tottenham has been one that has had its ups and downs, as it is hard to work out what his future is at the club. The Dutch winger has gone on to make a total of 51 appearances across all competitions for Spurs, having contributed with 12 goals.
However, with just 13 starts in the Premier League under both Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason last season, there may be doubts about his future at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which is perhaps why Ajax are mooted to be interested and many may look to Max Free Bets as a way of obtaining the best betting odds and bonuses they can to place a wager on that move happening.
But, that could all depend on the managerial situation at the Premier League outfit and whether the new manager has any plans to use the 23-year-old. At the moment, it is certainly a “lets wait and see” case, but if it plays out for too long, Ajax might be better off looking elsewhere and getting a player where they might not have to be involved in a negotiation process that can be rather lengthy and prove to be a waste of time.
Considering the current Eredivisie champions will be back in the UEFA Champions League next season, waiting around for a player who might not be available does seem a little ineffective and potentially costly for Erik ten Hag’s side.
