PSV rebuffed English interest in Bergwijn

PSV Eindhoven
The agent of PSV winger Steven Bergwijn admits he hopes his client will ply his trade in Serie A next term, with Inter Milan linked.

Reports have suggested PSV turned down three offers for winger Steven Bergwijn from English clubs before the transfer deadline.

The Dutchman, a product of the youth academy at the Philips Stadion, had been linked with a switch away from the club all summer.

Manchester United, Everton, and Wolves have been named as the club who were in for the 21-year-old, who netted 14 goals for PSV in the Eredivisie last season.

Despite manager Mark van Bommel admitting earlier in the summer he might leave if the price is right, PSV stood firm to keep their man away from the Premier League at least.

Bergwijn has since gone on to sign a new deal at PSV until the summer of 2023.

The report claims 40million euros would have been enough for them to be tempted to sell but United, Everton, and Wolves chose to pursue Dan James, Alex Iwobi, and Pedro Neto respectively, after failing to meet the asking price.

Bergwijn has figured in both of their games in the Dutch top flight so far this season and will prepare to face Heracles on Sunday evening.
