Manchester City scout Sebastian Arnesen has revealed that the club have been keeping a close watch on Ajax starlet Kasper Dolberg, who has been linked with Everton with a view to making a move for him in the future.
Ajax snapped up the Danish youngster from Silkeborg IF last year and Dolberg has taken little time to break into the club’s senior squad with his performances for their Under-19s.
The 19-year-old striker has already made 21 senior appearances for Ajax this season and recently scored a hat-trick against NEC Nijmegen in the Dutch Eredivisie, which has attracted the attention of clubs across Europe.
A number of scouts from top European clubs have been tracking his progress with the Dutch giants, with it reported that Everton are keen, while it has now been revealed that Premier League giants Manchester City are one of the clubs also interested in the youngster.
Arnesen, one of Manchester City’s top scouts, admitted that the Citizens have been tracking the performances of the special talent at Ajax and could make a move for him in the future.
He told Danish daily BT: “We are keeping a very close eye on him and when the time is right we’ll make a decision on whether we should act.
"He has a huge potential. He is tall, strong, brave and quick. He has an excellent touch, can play with his back to the goal and take the right decisions.
“And he can finish from anywhere on the pitch.
"He is so special and therefore he is of course also on the radar.”
Dolberg made his debut for Denmark earlier this month in their 4-1 win over Kazakhstan.
