£10m-Rated Dutch Attacker Confirms Interest In Joining Arsenal, Man Utd or Tottenham

By on February 13, 2018

The January transfer window in now closed so it’s time to look at those deals that didn’t get over the line and those being lined-up for the summer. Today, Justin Kluivert wants to play in the Premier League…

Ajax youngster Justin Kluivert has confirmed he wants to play in England and named Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham among the clubs he’d be interested in joining, according to TeamTalk.

Kluivert – son of Dutch legend Patrick – has been with Ajax his entire career and came through the youth ranks before breaking in to the first team set-up during last season.

The 18-year-old is now a regular in the starting eleven with the Eredivisie giants and has provided 7 goals and 4 assists in his 25 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

His impressive form has led to speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford with the Mirror reporting earlier this month that United were lining-up a £10m swoop for the Ajax star this summer.

Jose Mourinho has been keeping a close eye on Kluivert’s career for many years and he even spoke at length with the teenager after United’s Europa League final win over Ajax last season.

Kluivert junior has now opened the door to a move to United but it seems he’s keeping his options open as the teenager also named Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham as clubs he’d like to play for here in England.

However, the young attacker has also admitted that he’d love to follow in his fathers footsteps by playing for Barcelona while he’d also find it difficult to turn down Real Madrid.

Kluivert is quoted by TeamTalk as saying:

“If you get a nice offer, you never know. England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years.

“Everywhere I go abroad they know my father, he often asked: ‘Come to Barcelona, I’ll give a tour of Camp Nou’.

“I really wanted to go to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?”

Kluivert is predominantly a left winger but he can also play on the opposite flank and he’d be a hugely exciting player for the future if he was to join one of the Premier League clubs over the coming years.
