Last Friday, Tottenham made headlines with the announcement of the signing of Lucas Bergvall, a highly sought-after young Swedish midfielder who had also piqued the interest of Barcelona.

However, it's worth noting that Bergvall's tenure with the Spurs won't commence until July 1st.

The Spanish newspaper AS reported that the 18-year-old midfield sensation, who is set to leave Djurgarden in Sweden for a substantial fee of approximately ten million euros, had explored the possibility of joining Barcelona before ultimately committing to the London-based club. It appears that Tottenham's offer was favored, largely due to the promising prospects it offered Bergvall in terms of integrating into the first team as early as the upcoming season.

The announcement of Bergvall's arrival at Tottenham came on a significant day for the young talent, as it coincided with his 18th birthday. He marked this milestone by putting pen to paper on a contract that binds him to the club until 2029, underscoring the long-term commitment and faith that the Spurs have in his potential.

In the 2023 season, while still with Djurgarden, Bergvall showcased his abilities on the pitch, recording an impressive tally of two goals and one assist in a total of 26 matches played. These statistics are a testament to his growing prowess as a midfielder and hint at the exciting contributions he could bring to Tottenham in the coming years. With an international cap already under his belt for the senior Sweden national team, Bergvall is undoubtedly a player to watch and represents a valuable addition to Tottenham's roster.
