Arsenal are reportedly considering a bid for Feyenoord teenager Stefan de Vrij.

The Dutch defender continues to gather admirers with his increasingly commanding displays in the Eredivisie and, hence, has been attracting interest from a number of clubs.

According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners are keen on the 19-year-old after Arsenal chief-scout Steve Rowley watched him against Den Haag at the weekend.

Rowley had initially visited Holland to keep tabs on Arsenal prodigy Ryo Miyaichi - who is currently on loan with Feyenoord - but was equally as impressed with the performance of De Vrij.


A recommendation is now reported to have been made to Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal boss will consider his options before launching a summer bid for the €4 million-rated defensive ace.

Miyaichi himself seems to be improving each week as he makes the most of his temporary spell in the Eredivisie after joining Feyenoord from Arsenal last month for the remainder of the season.

The Japanese teenager has already scored since in his brief spell at the club and the Dutch media have given him the moniker "Ryodinho", with his nifty footwork compared to that of Brazil legend Ronaldinho.

Arsenal fans will no doubt be eagerly awaiting the 18-year-old's return to north London and, if reports are to be believed, De Vrij may soon follow him to the Emirates Stadium.
