After an impressive campaign with Heerenveen, the 20-year-old forward has been linked with top clubs in the Netherlands.

However, they may face competition from Russia with Elshoff revealing on the NOS podcast that he had been contacted by Russian journalists over Van Bergen.

He said, “I was approached by four Russian journalists this week. Asking what I knew about Mitchell van Bergen. And they all came from Saint Petersburg. I don’t know if that’s true, but there is a rumour there in Saint Petersburg that Zenit wants Van Bergen.”

Van Bergen scored five goals and gave four assists in 25 Eredivisie games.
