Dutch wonderkid Riechedly Bazoer has been watched by Arsenal every single time he’s played this season.

According to various reports, the Gunners are incredibly keen on the midfielder, who has been compared to Patrick Vieira.

With an incredibly diverse skillset and a physique beyond his years, the 19-year-old is capable of playing any midfield role, such is his talent.

Under contract until 2020, Bazoer wouldn’t be an easy signing to make. Unfortunately, that isn’t even the trickiest thing about trying to sign him. Barcelona are interested in striking a deal to snatch the midfielder, and Pep Guardiola was seen in Amsterdam last week and is thought to have been negotiating a potential deal to link up with Bazoer at Manchester City next season.

With 30 appearances to his name this season, Bazoer has already established himself as a key player at Ajax and it seems like his time there will be limited. When he does leave a whole host of clubs around Europe will be interested in signing him, meaning he won’t come cheap at all and may have to be convinced why Arsenal, or another other club, is the best place to progress his career.
