toornThe newspaper believes the Premier League club are admirers of the Dutch midfielder, and boss Paul Lambert could make a move before the transfer window shuts tonight.

Toornstra has been Utrecht’s best player all season, netting 11 goals in 26 appearances for the club in all competitions. Last year the playmaker was rewarded for his good form with a call-up to the Dutch national side for the friendlies with China and Indonesia.

The 24-year-old started his career with ADO Den Haag, making over 100 league appearances for the club before joining Utrecht in the January transfer window last year.

Utrecht will be reluctant to let their star man go, with the club currently in poor form, and sliding down the table, but they have just completed the signing of Barcelona midfielder Fernando Quesada. Is he Toornstra’s replacement? We will find out by 11pm tonight.
