According to reports in the Telegraph this week, Arsenal are chasing 19 year old Dutch midfielder Riechedly Bazoer.

It's not the first time Wenger has expressed interest in the young central midfielder, the Arsenal boss tried to sign Bazoer three years ago before he joined Ajax. Ever persistent, Wenger sent scouts to watch the central midfielder this week. With ex-Arsenal man Dennis Bergkamp also among the staff at the Dutch club, it's hoped a deal can be reached in January. 

A solid box-to-box midfielder, Bazoer is considered one of Holland's most exciting young talents in the vein of past midfield stars such as Edgar Davids. 

Bazoer has played for the Netherlands at various youth levels, with two U21 caps and one goal, and received his first full call up this month, which will no doubt increase his value.
