Arsenal given the all clear to launch bid for Dutch ‘Hargreaves’

Arsene Wenger has been taking a close interest in Feyenoord attacking midfielder Jonathan de Guzman and has sent Arsenal scouts to watch his progress. Guzmann has been in free flowing goal-scoring form in the Eredivisie and the Canadian born player has now been cleared to play for the Dutch national team.

Arsenal and Chelsea have been waiting for De Guzman to secure his Dutch passport before stepping up their bid for the talented attacker who has been in fine form for Feyenoord this season (various).

The Canadians are said to be unhappy at losing another of their talents to a European national team, much like Man United star Owen Hargreaves, and the 20 year Toronto born man looks to have a career as bright as that of the former Bayern Munich man.
