Steven Bergwijn still has a future at Tottenham between Ajax and Sevilla interest ahead of the January transfer market.
Clubs in France and Germany are also enthusiastic about Bergwijn and were considering an approach if he remained absent from the team under Antonio Conte, who preferred Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura behind Harry Kane.

A recent spell at Hotspur Way where Conte was able to work more closely with Bergwijn while other players were out with Covid has given new life to his Spurs career.
Sky Sports News It has been said that the Dutchman has been training very well during this period and is in very good shape.
After Bergwijn’s winning performance, who organized a semi-final with Chelsea, Conte said: “I think these two weeks that we have had many players with Covid have helped me and helped Steven to understand very well what I want from him and what we want from the other 11 players we had in training.
“Let’s not forget that for many days we trained with only 11 or 12 players. On the one hand it was very difficult. On the other hand we used this situation to improve the players.
“We have prepared ourselves to play the games with these players. Surely Steven should have played against Leicester, against Brighton, the games that have been postponed.
“With him and also with other players, we tried to use the period when we were only 11 or 12 players, to improve these players.
“Now Steven is a player totally involved in what I want, in what I ask of my players.”
Carabao Cup scores: the Count effect continues
Against Liverpool, it was Dele Alli and Harry Winks who were the latest players to show the impact of Antonio Conte’s arrival at Tottenham. Against West Ham, scorers Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn underlined their resurgence under the Italian as Spurs triumphed 2-1.
