Media: FC Schalke buys Orange Talent Bergwijn

In the constant search for promising talents, the football league FC Schalke 04 has apparently turned a blind eye to the Netherlands.

As the Italian portal “calciomercato” reports, the royal flowers are interested in an obligation by wingleter Steven Bergwijn of PSV Eindhoven. In addition to Schalke, Inter Milan is also to boast the 20-year-old talent.

Despite its young years, Bergwijn is one of the absolute achievers of the current Herdivisie table leader. In seven games, the player who can also play in the storm scored four hits –two more goals he prepared.

Bergwijn has played since his youth at Eindhoven. His debut for the pros was at the age of 17. Since then, the youngster scored 15-goals in 90-games and scored 17 more hits. The U21 national player is considered to be particularly fast, drifty and ballproof.

The Bergwijn contract at Eindhoven is still up to 2022. His replacement should be at around 20 million euros.

“Feel good”

But whether the young professional wants to leave his youth club at all in the near future is not clear.” I feel comfortable in my skin and get a lot of confidence from Mark von Bommel, that is important,”said Bergwijn recently.

Coach von Bommel recently praised his patron himself in the highest tones and recommended Bergwijn for the A-National Team:”I think Bergwijn deserved it. He has made great progress this season.”However, the 20-year-old is still waiting for his debut in the selection of Bondscoach Ronald Koeman.
