Dutch website Voetball International report that Holland's coaches hope Leeds United striker Jay-Roy Grot could be the one to one day solve the country's striking crisis.

The Netherlands have just failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and the lack of a freescoring striker has left the country looking for answers.

Holland have previously been able to boast prolific forwards like Marco Van Basten, Ruud van Nistelrooy or Robin van Persie, but now their best options are the distinctly average Vincent Janssen and Bas Dost.

Of just as much concern, report Voetball International, is the lack of a clear cut young talent breaking through at youth level.

Holland have several young options, but are waiting for one of them to step up and become dominant, in the same way Kylian Mbappe has for France.

Leeds United striker Jay-Roy Grot is named as one of nine young strikers who have been tried at youth level in the past 12 months, who the country's coaches hope will be able to kick on and make a name for himself.

Grot, formerly of NEC Nijmegen, is a Netherlands under-19 international.

He signed for Leeds in August with part of the money signed with the Chris Wood money, and has only played a bit-part role so far.

Grot has five appearances, all off the bench, totally 98 minutes of football. In that time he has no goals and one assist.

He still appears a raw prospect, and nowhere near the level of a Kylian Mbappe - if he was, Leeds would not have got their hands on him.

But there is a big opportunity available for Grot if he can prove himself at Leeds and make a name for himself.

Positive performances for the Whites could nail down a spot in the Holland under-21 side ahead of his competitors, and one day the senior team.
