Newcastle enters the race to sign Bergwijn

Newcastle Bergwijn

Newcastle United has set their eyes to signing Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham Hotspur. As per reports, the Spurs have decided to put the winger up for sale in the transfer window.

Bergwijn started his youth career at Ajax later moving on to PSV, where he made his senior debut. He scored 29 goals in 112 appearances for PSV. As a result, he got into the books of many European giants out of which Tottenham managed to sign him.

He signed for the Spurs in 2020 for approximately $30m. The Dutch international scored on his Tottenham debut in a victory over Manchester City, but has since scored just four more times and has failed to become a first-team regular. He made 40 appearances for the Spurs but managed to score only 4 times.

However, Conte expects that Tottenham would keep him rather than sell him in the transfer window.

“He knows very well what I think about him. I consider him a player that can play all the three roles, as a number 9 and number 10. In my period at Tottenham, he was injured for a long time.

“I showed him that when he is fit I gave him a chance. He is very close to coming back. He is a player with different characteristics than Harry, Son, and Moura, he is a player we don’t have in our squad.”

As for the Magpies, their new owners are eyeing this window to revive the squad by signing new players. Newcastle is currently languishing in the relegation zone. They have managed to secure only 11 points from the 19 matches played in the Premier League..

As a result, the Magpies are in desperate need of a winger. As per reports, Newcastle United has submitted a loan deal for the 24-year-old Dutch
