Arsenal are among European giants following the progress of Ajax superkid Riechedly Bazoer, according to the Sport 1 website.
The young midfielder is being likened to Gunners legend Patrick Vieira and has caught the attentions of a number of top European sides.
FC Groningen veteran Hedwiges Maduro said this week: “I think Riechedly Bazoer is the biggest talent today at Ajax and can bring a lot to the club in the case of a transfer.
“He is still young, but he is powerful and very calm on the ball. It’s rare to see it in a player so young.”
