The transfer window is approaching and its set to be a busy summer for clubs in the Eredivisie. Michael Bell takes you through the Eredivisie stars who could be on the move to a club near you.

milik ajaexcArkaduisz Milik

The Polish striker is a man in demand after a productive season in front of goal which saw Milik net 21 league goals and add a further eight assists for Ajax.

Italian side Lazio and English duo Leicester City and Arsenal are just a few of the clubs that have been linked with Milik so far and if he shines at the Euros this summer then more will surely battle to pluck the forward from Amsterdam this summer.

Ajax are in no hurry to sell Milik, who is contracted to 2019, and could demand a fee of between €15-20 million.

ziyech twe tweHakim Ziyech

One of the biggest bargains in Europe this summer could be Hakim Ziyech, who is certain to leave Twente this summer after the Enschede club’s financial issues. The midfielder has been a star in the Eredivisie for the past few years, but flourished this season, scoring 17 goals and adding 10 assists despite being in a struggling side.

Ziyech possesses all the qualities of a top class playmaker and at the age of 23 is ready for a move to a top club in Europe. Clubs from England and Germany have been linked, and there was even a tentative mention of interest from Barcelone at one point during the season.

janssen az scoVincent Janssen

The revelation of the Eredivisie season, Janssen finished as top scorer in his first campaign in the top flight with 27 league goals for AZ Alkmaar.

The 21-year-old has already made an impression for the Dutch national team, and it seems the next logical step in his career is a move to a top club. Ajax and PSV have both been linked, but a move abroad is also on the cards with Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolfsburg just some of the clubs rumoured to be circling the forward.

Janssen still has a few years on his AZ contract and the club will be hoping for a handsome fee to part with the new Ruud van Nistelrooy.

bruma klaassenJeffrey Bruma

The former Chelsea centre back has been rock solid for PSV for the past two seasons and has played a major role in their back to back Eredivisie title wins.

Bruma is a leader at the back, a regular at international level, and showed in the Champions League this season that he is a match for some of the best players in Europe. At 24, Bruma is ready for another crack at foreign football and has already held talks with Italian giants Inter Milan while Wolfsburg are another club who have been heavily linked with the centre back.

willems psv djjdJetro Willems

Willems name has been linked with clubs around Europe since he was named in the Netherlands squad for the European Championships in 2012.

The left back has remained with PSV since then, winning the league twice and constantly proving that he is one of the best young full-backs in Europe. However, this may be the summer that Willems finally earns his long-awaited move abroad with PSV director Marcel Brands stating earlier this month that he expects the 22-year-old to leave Eindhoven.

Manchester United, Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Manchester City have all been linked with Willems in the past and could follow up their interest this summer.

maher psv adAdam Maher

Crowned the Dutch young footballer of the year back in 2012, Maher was destined for the top of the game, turning down a move to Arsenal to join PSV from AZ Alkmaar. However, it hasn’t worked out for the midfielder, who’s form in Eindhoven has been a big disappointment and the club are ready to let the midfielder leave this summer.

Maher is clearly a talented playmaker and may just need a change of scenery to regain the form which made him one of the most promising youngsters in Europe. The likes of Arsenal may not be interested anymore, but Maher would be a good addition to a mid-table Premier League or Bundesliga side, who would give the 22-year-old the playing time he needs.

kongofeymaTerence Kongolo

The versatile defender has been a key member of the Feyenoord first team since making his debut in 2012, and was part of the Netherlands squad that finished third in the World Cup two years ago.

Capable of playing in the centre or on the left of defence, Kongolo has it all to become one of the strongest defenders in Europe. Quick, strong, good in the air and powerful the 22-year-old would fit into many sides around Europe, and is being heavily linked with a move this summer.

Sunderland, Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg have all been linked with Kongolo this week, joining previous admirers AC Milan, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.

henrik az bilbaoMarkus Henriksen

AZ Alkmaar’s Norwegian star was heavily linked with Napoli last summer but the move didn’t materialise, and the midfielder stayed in Alkmaar, going on to score 12 goals and add seven assists in an impressive campaign.

With one year left on his contract, Henriksen may be allowed to leave AZ for a markdown price this summer, and there should be plenty of potential suitors for the 23-year-old.

mokotjo twe brenKamohelo Mokotjo

FC Twente’s troubles will not only see Ziyech leave, with tough-tackling midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo another certainly on his way out of the club.

The South African is one of the most underrated players in the Eredivisie, starring for PEC Zwolle in their cup winning campaign before signing for Twente in 2014.

Brentford were interested in signing Mokotjo last summer, but he turned down the move to England. With relegation to the Eerste Divisie looming for Twente though, Mokotjo will be available this summer and a move abroad seems on the cards.

hall uuuSebastien Haller

Utrecht picked up a gem when they signed Haller on loan from Auxerre on loan last season and were quick to make the move permanent in the summer.

The Frenchman has been lethal in front of goal for the club, scoring 17 goals in the league this season, and has been hugely influential as Utrecht finished in fifth.

Norwich City tried to sign the striker in January, but he turned the move down in order to see the season out. Ajax have now been heavily linked as they look for a possible replacement for Arkaduisz Milik, and it seems Utrecht have an impossible task in convinving Haller to stay.
