Tottenham is apparently interested in signing Ajax star Antony and would be willing to send Steven Bergwijn the other way. 

The Brazilian winger has been linked with a £51 million move to Manchester United, where he might rejoin with Erik ten Hag.

Antonio Conte, according to the Sun, is interested in the 22-year-old, having already made three additions since ensuring the club’s return to the Champions League.

In Ten Hag’s final season at the club, Antony had a successful season with the Eredivisie title winners, scoring eight goals and providing four assists.

As a result, the Brazilian, who has nine senior international appearances under his belt, has piqued the curiosity of some of Europe’s premier clubs.

Manchester United are anticipated to make a lot of additions this summer, with manager Louis van Gaal trying to rebuild the team after their worst Premier League season ever last season.

The relationship between Manchester United and Ajax is said to be strong, in addition to Ten Hag being a significant negotiating chip for the club.

Edwin van der Sar, a legend at both clubs who is now a top football executive with the Dutch club, is seen to be a crucial element of those tight ties.

Due to Ajax’s interest in former PSV Eindhoven player Bergwijn, Tottenham are thought to believe they have the key to signing Antony.

Steven Bergwijn
They may be willing to trade Steven Bergwijn as part of a swap deal with Ajax, according to reports.

The 24-year-old joined Spurs for £26 million in January 2020, but has struggled to find his feet in the Premier League.

Bergwijn has 83 appearances and eight goals in two and a half seasons, albeit he has largely been utilised off the bench. He failed to break into Conte’s plans last season, scoring just three goals in the league.

However, two of them came in stoppage time against Leicester City, securing a stunning comeback victory that helped Spurs finish in the top four. Erik ten Hag already missed out on Darwin Nunez, who joined Liverpool this summer for £85 million.

According to rumours, their chase of Jurrien Timber has come to a halt because to the defender’s apprehensions about heading to Old Trafford during a World Cup year.
