Arsenal Linked with Highly-rated Ajax Midfielder
The highly rated Ajax midfielder has also been linked with Barcelona and Wolfsburg, and will be on the move when the winter window opens in January.
Arsenal-linked Riechedly Bazoer is in the “final phase” of talks regarding a January transfer, Ajax head coach Peter Bosz has revealed.
The highly rated midfielder has emerged as a winter target for several leading clubs, with Barcelona and Wolfsburg also reported to be closely monitoring his situation.
Bazoer, at just 20 years of age, is already an established performer, with over 60 club appearances to his name and six senior caps for the Netherlands.
Since breaking through at Ajax while still in his teens, the youngster’s profile has risen considerably across Europe.
He is now set to open a new chapter in his promising career, with Bosz conceding that a move elsewhere is imminent.
“Riechedly and I had a good conversation on Saturday afternoon,” he told the club’s official website.
“He reported that his transfer is in the final phase – and I also understand this from Marc [Overmars, director of football].
“He has a view to a new club, which is why we gave him freedom from training to work with players who are focused on our next opponent.
