Sevilla make new approach for PSV winger Steven Bergwijn

Sevilla have made a renewed bid of €30m in their attempts to land PSV winger Steven Bergwijn, according to reports in Spain.

Estadio Deportivo say that the new offer has come in from the Andalusian club after their first approach of €25m was rejected earlier this month.

Last month, Marca cited a report from De Telegraaf that the club’s sporting director Monchi will return to Eindhoven having already landed striker Luuk de Jong from the club.

Bergwijn, 21, has a contract until 2022 and has a reported market value of €35m - meaning that he could potentially become the Andalusian club’s record transfer.

Sevilla have already made 11 summer signings, spending over €120m on the likes of Moanes Dabour, Diego Carlos, Joan Jordan, Jules Kounde, Fernando, Luuk de Jong, Lucas Ocampos, Oliver Torres and Sergio Reguilon.

The report claim Dutch international Bergwijn could act as a replacement for Pablo Sarabia, who left Los Rojiblancos to join Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth €20m this summer.

Bergwijn played 41 games last season, 23 as left winger and 18 on the right flank. He netted 15 goals and provided 13 assists.

He scored the third goal as PSV beat rivals Ajax 3–0 to clinch the 2017–18 Eredivisie title and has won six caps for the Netherlands.
