Is This Arsenal’s January Striker Signing?

Davy Klaassen

Arsenal are interested in signing Ajax sensation Davy Klaassen according to reports and had sent scouts to watch him during a recent Dutch league match against NAC Breda. The 20 year old has been likened to Gunners’ and Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp owing to his ability to create chances and also score goals.

Wenger isn’t the only one that rates Klaassen, he is also highly rated in his homeland. Frank de Boer also spoke to daily mail and he has good things to say about him. Hear him

“Davy is an attacking midfielder who can play centre forward. He’s definitely very talented. Moreover, he’s a smart guy.”

It will be good if Wenger can catch him young, who knows, the Frenchman might just be unearthing the next Bergkamp and by default the next Van Persie. Certainly, Ajax will loathe loosing another bright prospect after loosing Cristian Eriksen in the summer.

With Wenger apparently looking his way, it seems the Frenchman is already drumming up potential replacements for soon to depart Nicklas Bendtner. As far as I am concerned, it is goodnews, any player is good enough provided he rids us of that misfit. Bendtner has had and fluffed the many chances he has gotten at Arsenal, let someone else get it.
