Arsene Wenger is looking to sign Ajax youngster Riechedly Bazoer, a player he was keen on three years ago but missed out on to the Dutch giants, as reported by the Mirror.
The report claims Wenger has sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old, and is hopeful of luring him away from the Eredivisie. Bazoer is one of the brightest talents in the Netherlands at the moment, and there’s few better places for blossoming young talent to be than the Emirates.
Having already been called up to the Under-21s and the senior squad, the teenager is likely to come with a premium attached. Arsene Wenger always has his eye out for a bargain though, and if he wants to bring Bazoer to the club then he’ll do what he can.
He certainly has his connections at Ajax, with Dennis Bergkamp currently assistant manager at the club. Hopefully the Arsenal legend could pull a few strings, and convince Bazoer that North London is where he belongs.

Another talented wonderkid isn’t exactly a priority at the moment, but it’s always important to be looking towards the future, and Bazoer is certainly the future.
