Arsenal express interest in Ajax starlet

Arsenal are considering move for Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen after scouts watched him score a hat-trick against NAC Brada on Saturday, according to MailOnline.

The 20-year-old, labelled the new Dennis Bergkamp because of his ability to both create and score goals, has netted six goals in 10 games so far this season and impressed Arsenal’s scouts with a fantastic treble over the weekend.

And Ajax coach Frank de Boer said raved about him after his Man of the Match performance against Brada.

He told MailOnline: “Davy is an attacking player who can play centre forward.

“He’s definitely very talented. Moreover, he’s a smart guy.”

Klaassen was just 11-years-old when he joined Ajax and progressed through their youth academy. He made his first-team debut in a Champions League meeting with Lyon in November 2011.

His Eredivisie debut came just days later when he scored just one minute in to a 3-0 victory over NEC Nijmegen, but then saw his first-team opportunities few and far between over the following 18 months.

But Klaassen has made a real claim for a regular first-team spot so far this season with a number of impressive performances that have alerted the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Scouts from all over Europe have reportedly made the trip to the Amsterdam Arena to watch Klaassen, with a move away from Holland becoming more and more likely.
