Steven Bergwijn has already parted ways with Tottenham
Tottenham striker Steven Bergwijn (25) will leave for Ajax, Netherlands. It has been two and a half years since he transferred to Tottenham. The transfer fee is up to (2.65 million (about 41.1 billion won), and the agreement between the clubs has been completed, but only the official announcement is reportedly delayed at the request of the Tottenham club.
According to Dutch media AD on the 28th (Korea Standard Time), Tottenham and Ajax finally agreed to transfer Verbine. The transfer fee is a basic 21.55 million pounds (about 34 billion won) plus a bonus of 4.5 million pounds (about 7.1 billion won). It is reported that it is close to the transfer fee Tottenham wanted during the negotiation process.
However, the media explained, “The announcement of Verbine’s transfer to Ajax has been suspended at the request of the Tottenham club,” adding, “This is because Tottenham leader Fabio Parathic wants to announce Verbine’s transfer with the announcement of the recruitment of a new player.” Tottenham is seeking to recruit a new striker for Verbine’s departure, which means that the Tottenham club’s request is to delay the official announcement of his transfer to inform Verbine’s release and recruitment of new players.
As a result, Verwein will return to his home country, the Netherlands, two and a half years after moving to Tottenham in January 2020. He played as a key striker for PSV Eindhoven and moved to Tottenham during the 2019-2020 season. At Eindhoven, he scored eight league goals in the 2017-2018 season and 14 goals in the 2018-2019 season, receiving a love call from Tottenham.
However, after moving to Tottenham, the playing time was greatly reduced as the competition for the main player was pushed back every season. He played in 25 games in the English Premier League (EPL) last season, but only four of them started as a “backup role.” He also lost his ground as Dejan Kouloussevsky, who was recruited through the winter transfer market, was also pushed back. 코인파워볼
Ajax most actively promoted the recruitment of Verbain, with even head coach Luis van Gaal of the Dutch national team insisting that he leave Tottenham for a steady appearance. Fortunately, as the transfer fee agreement between the clubs was reached quickly, his transfer was also made at a rapid pace. Hishalisson (Everton) is one of the first candidates to recruit a strong striker to fill Verbine’s vacancy, and TeamTalk of the United Kingdom predicted, “Both transfers are likely to be official in a few days.”
