Berghuis azjjffSince Depay left for Manchester United, PSV have been linked with several wingers including Feyenoord’s Jean Paul Boetius, and Ajax’s Ricardo Kishna. It seemed Uruguayan youngster Gaston Pereiro was their number one target, but that deal has now become unfeasible according to director Marcel Brands.

Now Omroep Brababnt are reporting that PSV have entered talks with AZ Alkmaar winger Steven Berghuis over a move to Eindhoven this summer. The newspaper’s reporter Paul Post added on Twitter that he believes its only a matter of time before the deal is announced.

The 24-year-old was excellent for AZ last season, scoring eleven goals and adding five assists as the club finished third and qualified for the Europa league. Berghuis earned a Netherlands call up for the games against USA and Latvia earlier this month. but was not handed his national team debut by Guus Hiddink.
