Bergwijn spectacularly scored two goals in stoppage time this week to win three points for Tottenham at Leicester and wrote himself into Spurs folklore.
The winger’s time at Spurs has failed to take off since he arrived from PSV Eindhoven in January 2020 and he has been continually linked with leaving the club this month to return to the Netherlands.
Ajax are interested in signing him and have already failed with an initial bid of £15m in their efforts to take him back to the Netherlands.
Antonio Conte indicated that the Dutchman will stay at Tottenham this week, but it has been claimed that Ajax are yet to throw in the towel in the race to sign him.
The winger’s two goals this week have made it harder for Ajax to get him out of Spurs and Tottenham remain reluctant to sell him.
But the Dutch giants are still keen and will wait until after Tottenham’s big league game against Chelsea this weekend to decide whether to table another bid for Bergwijn.
Ajax rate the winger highly and are not prepared to give up on signing him yet despite Spurs’ reluctance.
The Dutch champions had been left to believe that a bid worth £20.8m would do the trick, while it was also suggested in the Netherlands this week that a deal to take Bergwijn to Ajax is now rated as unlikely.
