Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all reportedly hot on the trail of €20m-rated PSV Eindhoven striker Steven Bergwijn this summer.

The 20-year-old moved to PSV from Dutch rivals Ajax in 2011 and has become a regular as the Eindhoven outfit won the Eredivisie title this season.

Bergwijn made 32 appearances for Phillip Cocu’s men, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists as he formed part of a dangerous front three with Hirving Lozano and Luuk de Jong.

And Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claims that the Premier League trio all want the speedy wide man, along with clubs from France, Germany and Italy.

The report goes on to state that Jurgen Klopp has been monitoring Bergwijn’s progress for some time and that the Reds have been scouting him since the winter break in Holland.

The winger is being viewed as a potential back-up to Sadio Mane and Mo Salah at Anfield, but could get more of a chance should he move to London.

PSV will reportedly accept a fee of between £13.5m to £17m for the player.
