Arsenal Plotting A Move For This AFC Ajax Midfielder: The Perfect Replacement For Ramsey?

According to a recent report by Marca (via Sports Witness), Arsenal are lining up a move to secure the signature of AFC Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek. The same source has revealed that the Dutch Eredivisie talent is on the Gunners’ radar after a remarkable UEFA Champions League run with Ajax this season.

The Recent Emergence Of Donny van de Beek

The 22-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most promising young players to come out of Dutch football. He has lit up the Eredivisie with a string of dazzling displays during this campaign. van de Beek has featured in 50 matches for Ajax this term, scoring 15 goals while creating 11 assists across all competitions.

The Nijkerkerveen born sensation came through the youth ranks of Ajax before breaking into the club’s first-team back in 2016. He has also earned five international caps for the Netherlands national side so far.

The Gunners can benefit from acquiring a player of van de Beek’s massive potential as they are set to lose Aaron Ramsey for free this summer. He could be a perfect long-term replacement for the departing Welshman at the Emirates Stadium.

What Will The Dutch Midfielder Add To Emery’s Team?

The Ajax wonderkid is an excellent passer of the ball which helps him link up quite effectively with his teammates in the opposition half. He has also added goals and assists to his game this season which goes to show that he is improving with each game. Even though van de Beek lacks pace, his physical dominance more than makes up for it. 

The addition of the Dutch starlet will undoubtedly bolster Unai Emery’s midfield options at the North London club. Emery is in dire need of rebuilding his squad during this summer transfer period so that he has a strong squad of players capable of challenging on all fronts next season.

Is Donny van de Beek The Right Option For The Gunners?

Hence, van de Beek will fit the bill perfectly so Emery should consider luring him to England at the end of this campaign. However, this move will only work for all parties if Arsenal are willing to play him regularly and not make him sit out of games often. He could very well be the perfect replacement for the Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey.
