Viktor Fischer is an 18-year-old winger you could be hearing a lot more about in coming seasons, if he gets a dream move to Manchester United or Arsenal this summer, with both sides linked with him recently.
As far as Ajax are concerned, they’ll be very happy with his stats so far this season; nine goals and four assists from all appearances, which has made him one of the most sought after teenagers in European football.
One of the best assets to his game is the fact that he’s adaptable and is able to read a match situation well.
The header he scored against Herenveen for Ajax last Friday is the perfect example of this, as he cut inside from his normal left midfield role, found space in the area before demanding the ball.
What makes the header superb is the way he had to dive and engineer his balance to make sure he got the right contact. Once he’d done that, it was always going to be a formality as he had an open goal.
It turned out to be a vital goal for Ajax who remain top of the Eredivisie by four points from PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord, having lost just one home game all season.
He’s definitely made himself more expensive with the way he’s played this season but his skills are undoubtedly positive for any side thinking of investing millions to make sure they get him.

A worthy signing for United or Arsenal?
