    Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a January move for Ajax wonderkid Riechedly Bazoer, according to the Daily Mail.

    Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly sent their scouts to the Netherlands to watch the 19-year-old midfielder in action following a plenty of impressive displays in Eredivisie.

    The north Londoners had made a bid to sign the teenager three years ago, but the Dutch maestro opted to move to Ajax instead – under the charge of Frank de Boer.

    However, The Gunners are now preparing a move to sign Bazoer following his recent call-up to the Netherlands squad to replace the injured Davy Klaassen.

    Wenger could tempted to make a move in the January transfer window, but Ajax could refuse to sell Bazoer until the summer, who has made nine appearances in all competitions for the Dutch giants this season.
