Report: Arsenal, Chelsea lining up summer move for Riechedly Bazoer

Arsenal and Chelsea are readying moves for Riechedly Bazoer of Ajax.

Arsenal and Chelsea are considering summer moves for Riechedly Bazoer of Ajax, SoccerNews reports.

The 19-year-old Dutch international has been excelling in the Eredivisie this season, and he is being linked with a big money move to the Premier League.

Arsenal and Chelsea are both big fans of the teenager, and believe he would be a wise long-term investment this summer.

There are no indications as to a transfer fee that Ajax will demand for Bazoer, but he is tied down to a contract until the summer of 2020, and they will not be held ransom for arguably their best young wonderkid.

Who is Riechedly Bazoer?

Bazoer, 19, is a natural central midfield, who has truly established himself at Ajax this season. 32 of his 54 appearances for the club have come this term, and he has made himself a key player in Frank de Boer’s squad.

He made his first appearance for the senior Dutch squad in November, and many believe he will be a central part of the Netherlands side for the next decade.

Renowned for his ability to win the ball back in the middle of the park, Bazoer has shown a maturity beyond his years, and would be a fantastic signing for either Chelsea or Arsenal.
