Manchester United have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of Dutch starlet Steven Bergwijn, who is also a Tottenham target and will cost £25 million.
According to a report by The Sun, Manchester United have intensified their chase for PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn. The Red Devils though, face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, among others, in pursuit of the Dutch international, who has a £25 million price tag on his head.
Steven Bergwijn joined PSV Eindhoven from bitter rivals Ajax in 2011, before progressing through the ranks and establishing himself as a regular within the first-team setup. While 2018-19 is his third full season with the Dutch giants, it is only now that the player has been catapulted into prominence.
In 25 appearances across all competitions, the 21-year-old has an impressive record of 10 goals and 9 assists. And, his exploits with PSV have also helped Bergwijn earn his maiden call-up to the Dutch National Side, in addition to attracting the biggest of clubs across Europe. Manchester United and Tottenham are the most prominent names in his pursuit.
Under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, attack seems to be in safe hands, with Manchester United scoring 19 goals in the seven matches he has overseen. But, a few chinks remain in their armoury, particularly the right wing slot, where no player has been able to make a telling impact thus far.
