Tottenham Hotspur are looking set to reportedly 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 (Tuesday) 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.

He has played 16 times for PSV in the Dutch Eredivisie this season, scoring five goals.

Spurs will still also be hoping to bring in a striker to replace the injured Harry Kane while they're trying to shift a number of players out of the club as well to freshen the squad up.
