According to reports this promising young player is going to be a real star of the future and at 19-years old Riechedly Bazoer is already a mainstay of the central midfield at the Dutch club Ajax. And according to The Mirror there is going to be a transfer battle for him in the summer, with Arsenal one of the clubs being linked along with our Premier League rivals Man City and Chelsea.
Bazoer is being compared to the former Holland star Frank Rijkaard because of his playing style and with a powerful physique and his 6ft frame the young star looks perfect for the English game. But with Pep Guardiola apparently keen on taking him to the Etihad as he begins his new job in the summer, Arsenal fans might already be thinking we may as well forget signing this young talent.
Maybe not though, because at Ajax we and more specifically Arsene Wenger will have a sympathetic ear. Because a certain former Arsenal star by the name of Dennis Bergkamp is the assistant manager there under Frank de Boer and if Bazoer was to get any advice on whether to play for the Gunners or under Arsene Wenger then I am sure that Begkamp would have nothing but good things to tell him.
But will this connection between Wenger and Bergkamp be enough for Arsenal to win this transfer battle?
