FC Twente have been heavily linked with the youngster over the past few weeks, and according to Il Messaggero Italian sides Lazio and Fiorentina are also keen to add the Dutchman to their ranks.

AZ Alkmaar will be keen to receive even a small fee for their defender, who has four caps for Netherlands U20’s.
