Ajax starlet happy with interest from Arsenal

The 22-year-old has been a hit at Ajax and has been linked with clubs such as Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

“Of course it’s nice to read that Arsenal are interested,” he said.

“I consider myself a good fit for the Premier League.

“Robin van Persie has told me many stories about the Premier League, Arsenal and Mr (Arsene) Wenger. Maybe he can put in a good word for me.”

The Holland international added: “I know that Barcelona and Real (Madrid) are interested, but now I am only thinking about doing well at the World Cup in South Africa.”
