Arsenal set for transfer battle over exciting 17-year-old Dutch talent

Posted by

Arsenal are still right in the Premier League title race this season, though that won’t stop Mikel Arteta from wanting to make improvements ahead of the new campaign.

As Man City have shown time and again under Pep Guardiola, the best time to improve the squad is when they’re still at the top of their game rather than if there’s a dip in form.

Of course, City have been one of the most consistent teams over the past few seasons, but knowing when to tweak certain areas of the side is what helps keep them ahead of the pack.

Sir Alex Ferguson was also a master at it when he was in charge of Man United.

From Arteta’s point of view, his team are absolutely able to win the title this year, but if they were to be edged out by Liverpool or Man City, the Spaniard could probably point to one or two areas where he could strengthen.

Perhaps that’s why he’s going after highly-rated Dutch international, Jorrel Hato, according to The Standard.

Currently plying his trade at Ajax, Hato could be at the centre of a fierce transfer battle as the Eredivisie giants are keen to tie him down to a long-term contract.

With one year left on his current deal, the financial elements of any deal as well as the pull of the Premier League could make a move to North London very tempting indeed for the youngster.

  1. Just because he is 17 and playing first team football, doesn’t make his a great potential. He maybe in the side because they have a lot worse cover in his position. I would measure his ability when he plays for his national team if he gets picked and if he is good enough to get games with his national side.
