5. Steven Bergwijn (PSV - Spurs): £25 million
Tottenham Hotspur snatched up the pacy Dutch winger for £25 million from Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven. After spending 9 years in PSV, the 22-year old finally achieved his desired Premier League move. Steven Bergwijn winger has brilliant dribbling ability and relentless pace and makes him pretty difficult for defenders to deal with.
Bergwijn is a versatile attacker capable of playing anywhere across the attack. During his time in Eredivisie, the winger completed 2.8 key passes per game which suggests that he is also capable of creating a few chances for his teammates. Bergwijn is a good finisher, from both outside and inside of the 18-yard box.
Along with his ability to create chances, the winger also averaged 2.5 dribbles per game and won 1.4 fouls per game before finally moving to Spurs. At just 22 years of age, Bergwijn can be a real asset for Mourinho's spurs for a long time.
