Tottenham Hotspur concluded two major deals on Tuesday, with Christian Eriksen switching away and Steven Bergwijn coming in, according to reports in England
Spurs have found an agreement with PSV Eindhoven on the basis of £27m for Bergwijn to swap the Eredivisie for the Premier League, BBC confirmed today.
The 22-year-old forward left the Phillips Stadium during the weekend, anticipating medicals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but the London outfit had failed to meet PSV’s demands at the time.
However, Tottenham have managed to overcome the last stumbling block to land the highly-rated winger, and Jose Mourinho will have the Netherlands international at his disposal soon.
With Harry Kane ruled out for the rest of the season, Mourinho desperately wanted a prolific forward to fill the void.
Although Bergwijn is not the type of striker the Portuguese needs, the ex-Ajax youth academy product will hand Tottenham a big boost in the attacking third.
In the meantime, Eriksen has completed his long-awaited move to Inter Milan after undergoing medicals on Monday, with Tottenham obtaining £17m from his transfer.
The 27-year-old playmaker will link up with Antonio Conte’s side and fulfill his desire for a new challenge away from north London after signing a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Serie A giants.
Eriksen arrived at Tottenham for £11.5million in summer 2013 and had established himself as one of the symbols of the club since, racking up 69 goals and 89 assists in 306 outings.
