Van Basten said: “Arjen has everything in his game. He has great touch, control, dribbling ability and can score great goals too.
“I would put him above other players because of his potential. He can get even better and can help this young team get better and win prizes over the next few years.
“We have a very young, talented team and there is no doubt in my mind Arjen can prove himself on the biggest stage.”
