There is an up-and-coming Dutch striker that is reportedly a Man United target, but he thinks that United and Man City are possibly a step too far at the moment, but has indicated that Arsenal are one of the teams that he admires quite a lot. He sounds like a typical Arsene Wenger signing and it sounds like he is a lot better than Yaya Sanogo!
The 19 year-old has been a sensation since being shoe-heeled into the Ajax side after Arek Milik was sold to Napoli last year. He was quoted as saying in the Express: “My goal was to play for Ajax’s reserve team, become their best player and maybe get a few matches in the first team,”
“But then Arek Milik went to Napoli and I got the chance.
“Then in the first game of the season I played and scored against PAOK in a Champions League qualifier.
“From that point I was motivated. The coach gave me confidence to play in the way I’ve always done.
“It’s too big a step to go to City or United now.
“It’s important to keep on playing, as I don’t know what could happen in the future.
“I haven’t got a dream league. When I was young it was Barcelona, but once I got older I didn’t have one.
“In England, I followed Arsenal because of Thierry Henry, but it wasn’t like Arsenal was my favourite.”
If he is saying that Arsenal are a possibility because Man City and Man United are too big for him, then it could be considered a bit of an insult, but if we could tie him down to a four year contract we could certainly consider it as an investment for the future. Should we go for him?
