Spurs in talks with Ajax over Steven Bergwijn transfer with Antonio Conte looking at swap deal with Antony | The Sun
ANTONIO CONTE is keen to sign Ajax's Antony this summer with forward Steven Bergwijn potentially going the other way.
The Brazilian winger contributed eight goals and four assists in Ajax's title-winning campaign.
This has seen the 22-year-old rise to the top of many clubs' shortlists, with Manchester United reportedly keen to bring him in alongside new manager Erik ten Hag.
His impressive season has seen him make nine appearances for the national team, scoring twice.
Despite interest from Old Trafford, Spurs believe they could hold the key to bringing Antony to England.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has reported Dutchman Bergwijn is being targeted by Ajax, with a deal being a real possibility.
