Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been discussing their club and the return to Premier League football after the international break over a few pints; and one of them raised an interesting story from today’s press.
The Daily Mail states Arsenal have been heavily-scouting 19-year-old Dutch midfielder Riechedly Bazoer and are preparing to swoop for the Ajax midfielder in January.
Bazoer is one of the most highly-rated young talents in Holland and he previously rejected a move to Arsenal three years ago, at the age of 16, deciding to continue his progression in his homeland.
Only turning 19 on Monday, Bazoer has been an integral part of Ajax’ side so far this season as he has featured in every Eredivisie game for the Dutch giants this term and Arsenal have scouted the player regularly, being thoroughly impressed with what they’ve seen.
Our Arsenal punters like the sound of Bazoer but believe he cannot be the only midfield signing in January, as they state the middle of the park is a week area for their side; particularly in the defensive aspects.
Arsenal fans, would you like to see Bazoer at the Emirates? Let us know in the comments below!
