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.
