The form of Bergwijn (21) and Lozano (23) this season has seen the PSV duo linked with several top European clubs. In conversation with Voetbal International, Marcel Brands was asked about the two young stars, who he helped bring to PSV, and whether he would like to sign them for Everton.

He said, “I think that if Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn go directly to the absolute top in the Premier League, they will have it very difficult. Look at Keïta at Liverpool. He was signed for more than €50m from Leipzig, but is simply on the bench. Of course Lozano and Bergwijn are interesting players, but €30m for Hirving and €20m for Steven, we will not pay that.

“For Richarlison, we have indeed paid a lot of money, but he is 21 years old and has already shown it in the Premier League. He is likely to deliver double. I do not know yet with Lozano and Bergwijn. If Lozano would cost €20m, I would consider it, but at higher amounts we look at players who have already proven it in the Premier League or in another big league.”

Bergwijn, who has a contract at PSV until 2022, has scored nine goals and added eight assists in 23 games this season. Lozano, who is binded to PSV until 2023, has 14 goals and eight assists in 26 games so far.
