Liverpool were credited with a move for PSV winger Steven Bergwijn last month but they are now set to pull out of the player’s race due to huge price tag from the Dutch side.
Netherland media outlet De Telegraaf reports that the Eredivisie side are not ready to sell him for anything less than €20m but that fee seems too expensive for Liverpool to release for a player who only had his breakthrough in the just-concluded campaign.
Though the 20-year-old winger is in the best form of his career, the Reds are not ready to spend big on reinforcing their attack at the expense of their goalkeeping department, hence, they are reportedly putting an end to their interest in Steven.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are ready to make perfect use of Liverpool’s withdrawal to lure the youngster to North London in the summer.
Unai Emery is currently in swift move to overhaul his team ahead of the upcoming season and he is hoping to get Steven as part of his newly formed team.
De Telegraaf also suggest that Serie A side Torino are also in the move for his signature. Their €12m offer was reportedly rejected by PSV last winter but they are set to reignite interest in him alongside Tottenham, who are also eyeing a possible swoop for his services.
