TOTTENHAM will beat Manchester United in the race to land PSV Eindhoven attacker Steven Bergwijn as he jets in for his medical.
The 22-year-old will land in London today to complete his move that is likely to continue into Wednesday.
Spurs and the Dutch side agreed a fee thought to be around 27million after the player pushed for a switch to Jose Mourinho’s side.
Bergwijn was left out of the squad in the 1-1 draw with FC Twente on Sunday further fuelling speculation that he was on his way out.
Mourinho has been desperate to sign a frontman this month following the serious hamstring injury to key striker Harry Kane.
And the Portuguese boss is impressed by his versatility to play across the attack providing further options when Kane is back on the field.
The player’s agent, Fulco can Kooperen, held talks with Mourinho and chairman Daniel Levy last week reports De Telegraaf.
He has made 29 appearances in all competitions for PSV this season, netting six goals and assisting a further 13.
Spurs have scored only two goals in four Premier League matches since the turn of the year, with Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura made to carry the workload upfront.
The news will come as a blow to Manchester United who were also tracking his availability.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also ready to delve into the market to land a forward with Marcus Rashford sidelined.
They may now pursue a shock switch for former Leicester striker Islam Slimani who was also a target of Mouriho if Bergwijn’s deal fell through.
