Tottenham news: Price set for Steven Bergwijn and Harry Kane on England goal-scoring record

Here is your Tottenham morning digest on Saturday, June 4.

Spurs set price for Bergwijn

Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly demand around £20million for Ajax target Steven Bergwijn. The 24-year-old is widely expected to leave this summer after becoming a peripheral figure under Antonio Conte.

According to Dutch publication, De Telegraff, Spurs have already rejected a bid from Ajax which they deemed to be far too low to secure Bergwijn’s services. The former PSV star is believed to be keen on leaving north London after failing to start a game since January’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

However, talks between Ajax and the Lilywhites are believed to be ongoing with the Dutch champions confident that a deal can be done in the near future. Spurs would be keen to recoup as much of the £26.7million they purchased Bergwijn for two-and-half years ago; but as per ESPN would settle for around £20m.

Kane on breaking England goal scoring record

Harry Kane wants to be England’s top goalscorer of all time before leading the country in the World Cup this winter.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has notched 49 goals in just 69 appearances for England and lies only four goals behind Wayne Rooney’s total of 53, which came from 119 matches. England have six games ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, four in the next fortnight – starting with Saturday’s Nations League match in Hungary – and two more in September and Kane is hoping that he can break the record before the tournament arrives.

“I’d like to break it as soon as possible, I’d love to score as many goals as I can in the next four games [this month] before the World Cup and see where we go from there, but I’m someone who doesn’t let that stuff affect me when I’m on the pitch,” the Spurs forward said in his press conference ahead of Saturday’s game.

Bastoni contract status can help Spurs

Alessandro Bastoni is on the lips of all Tottenham fans at present as the club look to sign a new left-sided centre-back this summer. A position on their radar ahead of January, it was decided that Spurs would instead wait until before the 2022/23 campaign to strengthen there.

Ben Davies excelled in the position under Antonio Conte but the Welshman was the only real player for the spot despite Tottenham having a number of other options across the backline. Not wanting to just have the one man for the position, Fabio Paratici will now do his best to bring in someone to help the club hit the next level, with supporters wanting Bastoni.

A player the managing director of football knows well from his time in Italy, Conte spent two years working with the Italian international during his time as Inter Milan boss and he will know him inside out. Excelling for the Nerazzurri and a regular at the back over the past three campaigns following previous loan spells with Atalanta and Parma, a fee around £51million could be needed to clinch the signing of the centre-back.
