Tottenham and Arsenal in the race to sign Dutch starlet
The 19-year-old Dutchman has been impressing clubs all around Europe this season and made his 80th appearance for Alkmaar last week, an impressive figure considering his age.
The Dutch club want around £10million for Maher in the summer and he has already been scouted while on international duty by Tottenham and Arsenal, with City stepping up their interest too.
Maher was born in Morocco but has now played three times for Holland after committing himself to the Oranje last year.
The Premier League trio will have to battle it out amongst themselves for the youngster’s signature but also fight off interest from Barcelona and AC Milan this summer.
Newcastle United approached Alkmaar last summer with their interest in Maher but decided against making a formal bid at the time.
