Arsenal would finally be getting their Yaya Toure if they signed Riechedly Bazoer from Ajax

The Dutchman has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past week.

This summer Arsenal were the only team from one of the major European leagues to not sign an outfield player.

The only first-team player that arrived at Arsenal this summer was Petr Cech - snapped up from London rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal are now being linked with plenty of signings in the winter window, but one really stands out as a player that Arsenal might actually sign - who would also be an astute acquisition.

The player in question is Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer.

The Mirror reported earlier in the week that Arsenal and Barcelona would be going toe-to-toe for the combative midfield operator, who is also capable of playing at the back.

The 19-year-old star recently received his first call-up to the Dutch national team and with just cause.

A physical and imposing midfielder with the technique of a 50's Brazilian this is perhaps the best product to fall off the Ajax production line in many a year. Although, he is technically a product pf the PSV Eindhoven system - only joining Ajax in 2012.

Comparisons to Yaya Toure, one of Arsene Wenger's best known near-misses in the transfer market, are absolutely just - with the teenager possessing all attributes to excel to the level the level the Manchester City maestro has achieved

Arsenal would be getting their hands on a potential world-beater if they got their hands on Bazoer and Wenger would be leaving the club in good hands when he finally decides to hang up his long coat.
