Club career[edit]

PSV Eindhoven[edit]

Bergwijn was born in Amsterdam.[3] played up to and including 2011 in the youth at Ajax, due to a conflict with one of the youth trainers, he chose to leave. PSV immediately intervened and contracted the young attacker. Bergwijn made his first-team debut for Jong PSV in the second division on 9 August 2014 against Achilles '29.[3] He replaced Liveson Kasenza after 77 minutes in a 2–0 home win.[4]

He scored the third goal as PSV beat rivals Ajax 3–0 to clinch the 2017–18 Eredivisie title.[5]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

At the end of the January 2020 transfer window Bergwijn signed a five-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth a reported £26.7 million.[6] In his Premier League debut against Manchester City he scored his first goal for the club earning a 2–0 victory and was also named Man of the Match by Sky Sports.[7]

International career[edit]

Bergwijn earned his first full international call up when Ronald Koeman named him in the Netherlands squad in October 2018.[8] He made his debut on 13 October 2018 in a 3–0 2018–19 UEFA Nations League A victory over Germany, as a starter.[9]
