Bergwijn Targeted Again

West Ham United’s summer transfer window could see them reignite their interest in Ajax winger Steven Bergwijn, with the Dutch giants facing financial constraints.

With Julen Lopetegui’s impending arrival as manager, West Ham is gearing up for a potential summer spending spree. While specific targets remain unclear, Bergwijn was reportedly on the club’s radar in January.

Despite the departures of Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals in January, West Ham failed to secure Bergwijn. However, a recent update suggests a second chance might be available.

According to David Ornstein, Ajax’s failure to qualify for the Champions League has cast doubt on the futures of key players, including Bergwijn. While neither player nor club desires a transfer, Ajax needs to balance the books, potentially opening the door for a sale.

Ajax’s financial situation presents an opportunity for West Ham to acquire Bergwijn at a potentially reduced price. The Hammers desperately need reinforcements on the wing, having failed to replace Benrahma and Fornals in January. This reliance on Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus has stretched the squad far too thin.

The arrival of Bergwijn would not only address the lack of depth on the flanks but also inject much-needed Premier League experience and quality into the West Ham attack. If West Ham can negotiate a favourable transfer fee, Bergwijn could be the missing piece in their attacking puzzle.
