I’m assuming his main preference is not playing for Everton


doriscissorsfind441

Think he will go wherever for gametime tbh


superkamishaurya

He will get plenty game time at ajax while also playing in UCL and being close to his family. I would be very surprised if he does decide to go to Everton.


doriscissorsfind441

Money is a great incentive tbf


superkamishaurya

Yeah that's true. I still feel Everton would have to offer much higher wages than ajax for him to consider that move.


Aenjeprekemaluci

But it wouldn't be sustainable for long for Everton. Also no European Cup. And hard if not impossible for them to qualify for it in the foreseeable future. Bergwijn wouldn't stay more then a year and Everton need to search again. No reason for him to go there except higher wages


nohaybanda_

>No reason for him to go there except higher wages Playing in the Premier League is a big draw for a lot of players. Sure, Ajax are in the CL, but it's not uncommon for CL players from the smaller leagues to join middling PL clubs.


kappa23

But he’s already played in the PL without having made much of an impact. Ajax would be a better place for him as suggested above.


Mantooth77

which is why we shouldn't do it. Just now shedding some huge salaries that shouldn't have been there in the first place. Plus, we don't need another Right footed LW when we have Anthony Gordon who's just had his first year as a regular starter. We have other glaring needs, especially defensively.


Sunstridr

Clearly not big enough an incentive for Bergwijn, otherwise he would prefer Everton over Ajax. No way Ajax can offer Premier League level wages.


doriscissorsfind441

It's a sliding scale. There's a point to which the increased wages are more preferable than ajax. Everton just haven't reached that point yet.


Sunstridr

Probably true, but considering Everton's financial situation, I doubt Everton are allowed to go to the point that it flips.


Venhuizer

The world cup is aswell and van gaal has stated he only wants players with a lot of playtime


DahDutcher

So is the premier league over the Eredivisie. Sure, Ajax has CL and Everton don't, but like 26/34 games are pretty much training ground games for Ajax here.


MrCrashdummy

**Everton does everything to let Ajax not get Steven Bergwijn (24) for the fourth time. The club of Frank Lampard has made the striker of Tottenham Hotspur a personal proposal that is much better than that of Ajax, sources around Liverpool confirm. Everton also seems willing to pay the transfer fee that Spurs is asking for.** The decisiveness of Everton brings Bergwijn, who is currently still on holiday, possibly in a split. The international has been in a personal meeting with Ajax for weeks, that via technical manager Gerry Hamstra and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar did not succeed in reaching an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur. The Amsterdammers know exactly what the Premier League club wants, have approached the asking price, but for each new offer they have to pass financial director Susan Lenderink and the supervisory board. Bergwijn, who is also high on the wish list of Manchester United and Newcastle United, seems to have a preference for Ajax. In the Johan Cruijff ArenA he plays in the Champions League and with a view to the World Cup in Qatar a lot of playing time seems important. However, the player's patience will also have limits.

Now Manchester United are linked too? In before Newcastle get dragged into this.


Shadodeon

Unless there was an edit Newcastle was in the same sentence as Manchester United

Honestly I might have missed it.

thehunter_1999

It's positive signal that he doesn't seem to go for the money


Beaufort1371

He's class from what I've seen anyway and very professional and respectful.


OneManArmyy

great smile too.


BlameTibor

Players usually get bonuses for European games. Sometimes they can be very significant


mappsy91

Personally I don't think there's any chance he goes Everton. I think Spurs / Agents are just trying to get Ajax to either make a bid/ up their bid or hurry up


MouseMD369

Maybe Ajax should pay up? Bergwijn has no leverage here as he wants gametime before the very soon world cup. Ajax has no leverage here as there will be pressure from the Netherlands FA. Spurs can afford to not sell this window...


thehunter_1999

We will pay up after the first of juli. Currently there are some financial things that hinder us, I believe it has to do with our annual write off or something like that (I don't really know how it works tbh).


MouseMD369

Apparently so. I heard June 30th and Spurs want to announce a striker first?


thehunter_1999

Yeah, first you guys need to get Richarlison.


MouseMD369

I think it's looking pretty done , Levy met with Everton's Chairman for dinner last night They apparently get on very well.


doriscissorsfind441

Looks like Everton at least want him.


Mozezz

Very much doubt it More like our name is being used to get things going Why would we need a left winger to join Gordon, Gray, Iwobi? We have one right winger in Townsend who is out for the year and we’re in need of a new defence and midfield


doriscissorsfind441

He's best as a striker imo


Mozezz

Well then he’s simply not getting game time ahead of DCL in that case


doriscissorsfind441

He'd just be a direct Richarlison replacement imo


Mozezz

Nah, Dennis is the better option, cheaper and can player across the 3 front positions Plus 1 year in England playing for a terrible Watford and he’s scored more than Bergwijn in 3 years at Spurs


joseba_

All those great players almost got you relegated, maybe if you replace them you won't be in the same position


Mozezz

No, because if you know anything about Everton you'd know it's the midfield and defence that need prioritising Signing Bergwijn in a cut price trade for Richarlison would be a waste of time and potential expenditure lost


joseba_

>No, because if you know anything about Everton I'm okay actually


Martyrizing

Fucking pay up, H2.


zeekoes

It's technically Lenderink who needs to pay up. H2 just negotiate the numbers she needs to sign off on.


Sunstridr

And it seems pretty clear that Lenderink is waiting for July 1st before signing off.


delidl

I swear if we lose out on Bergwijn because Lenderink is more interested in accounting tricks I am going to lose it.


Sunstridr

He is probably still coming, this is just agent tricks trying to make Ajax make exceptions for their client (which then everyone wants).


ledudeheld

As much as I want Bergwijn we cant raise the salary by that much more as players like Tadic would also want more


thehunter_1999

It's Susan who's being annoying.


Kitarn

Oh no, a financial director who's doing her job of making sure we don't overspend.


Suikerspin_Ei

Probably waiting for the first of July to announce the deal.


CheekyKunt68

Or not


delidl

That’s a lot less cool from Everton


SergeantHAMM

highly doubt it’s true. much more likely spurs trying to leverage y’all into paying more.


MouseMD369

Reports are saying that you've been making queries for weeks About him


Randybutterrubs

We don't want him, it's definitely just Levy being Levy


MouseMD369

Apparently you've been interested for weeks. Soz


Randybutterrubs

There hasn't been a single report from any of our ITK's which tells me all I need to know, and that is it's all on the Spurs end for a reason.


MouseMD369

Most likely Paratici feeding Fabrizio information but several outlets report 6 June Everton were interested.


Randybutterrubs

I understand, but not a single Everton source has said we are interested which makes me think that we are, in fact, not interested. Maybe Levy/Paratici are just feigning interest to drive up the price elsewhere.


MouseMD369

Fair enough, I did allude to that as Fabricio is often a mouthpiece for Paratici.


erikbla

Mike Verweij badgering Lenderink once again on behalve of “H2”. This is starting to border harassment. Anyway, you’d think Bergwijn would have something to prove in the Premier League instead of choosing the easy way out


robert1005

He would rather play with a good team in the UCL than with some mediocre team in the PL. Sounds perfectly logical to me.


erikbla

I disagree, I think he is being unambitious. If I were him, I’d would want to show I have what it takes to play in the PL. Instead, he takes the easy way out and chooses a team where he’ll always play, in a league he can play with his eyes blind folded. A league where he has played for over 5 years. We all know Bergwijn will never win a CL cup while at Ajax. So what is the point in preferring CL football? But perhaps his lack of hunger, of really stepping out of his comfort zone is the reason he never made it at Spurs.


robert1005

Maybe he just doesn't care much about the PL, that's quite normal for players outside of England. Also, I would say that wanting to play in the UCL is quite ambitious, as it's the biggest price in club football. Plus, Ajax have shown to put down teams that perform quite well in Europe in recent years, or have you forgotten about their semi final run already? I think you're a bit biased.


FuhhCough

Probably because he doesn't fancy being in a relegation battle


CasinoOasis2

Nice to see some ambition. He will still be paid very well at Ajax and will win trophies. Will win nothing at Everton.


7Krakas

He goes to Ajax and in 2 years will be off again somewhere for 50Mil+, which is why I don't want him sold for anything less than what we paid for probably even at a profit considering how some of these transfer are being over paid for. Plus he is too good for the dutch league to waste his time.
