One-time Manchester United transfer target Viktor Fischer provided a glimpse of his stunning potential at the weekend with a Eric Cantona style chip for Ajax.

The teenage Denmark international is still just 18-years-old, but he's already on the radar of most top European clubs.

United and Manchester City have been linked with the Dane in the past, but for now he seems happy in Amsterdam. And why not when he's scoring goals like this.

Fischer scored a brace on Sunday, as Ajax beat NEC 4-1, with his second an absolute beauty of a chip over the helpless keeper. It brought back memories of Cantona's famous chipped finish against Sunderland all those years ago.

Even his celebration had shades of the Frenchman - arms outstretched, arrogant sense of own self-importance, teammates fawning.

Anyway, thanks to for getting hold of the clip first. Enjoy above!
