Dutch wonderkid affirms interest in move to top Premier League clubs

Since the January transfer window is closed, we now take a look at the deals that weren’t completed and look ahead to teams and their summer targets and it is reported that Justin Kluivert is eager to play in the Premier League.

According to TeamTalk, Ajax youngster Justin Kluivert is interested in playing in the Premier League. Arsenal, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur are in the company of clubs he’s interested in.

The son of Dutch legend Patrick came through the youth ranks and has since broken into the first team set-up last season.

The 18-year-old has been regular since, and has bagged seven goals and four assists thus far this season.

The impressive form of the Netherlands Under-21 player has led to talks of him being linked with a move to Manchester United, with reports from The Mirror suggesting that the 2016 FA Cup winners were lining up a £10m move for the youngster in the summer.

 

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been keeping tabs on Kluivert and even spoke with the teenager following last season’s Europa League final.

Though the door has been opened for a move to the three-time European champions, Kluivert opted to keep his options open (for now), stating that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are clubs he’s interested in.

Having said that, the youthful player has revealed that he’d also love to follow his fathers career path and play for Barcelona, but he’d also find it difficult to shun Real Madrid.

Kluivert is quoted by TeamTalk as saying:

“If you get a nice offer, you never know. England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years.

“Everywhere I go abroad they know my father, he often asked: ‘Come to Barcelona, I’ll give a tour of Camp Nou’.

“I really wanted to go to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?”

Mainly, Kluivert is a left-winger, but can be utilised on the opposite flank. Should he join a Premier League side he’d definitely be one for the future!
