Feyenoord starlet Orkun Kokcu has emerged as a potential transfer target for many clubs in the Premier League.

The 17-year-old has appeared as one of the top prospects in European football, contributing as many as 17 goals and 34 assists for the Under-19s side last term.

Orkun Kokcu is yet to make a senior appearance for the Dutch giants, but the Daily Mail is reporting, that has not prevented teams from England’s top tier from showing interest.

The report adds that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all monitoring the player’s growth ahead of a possible approach at the midway point of the campaign.

Orkun Kokcu – whose contract expires in 2020 – has already earned international recognition with Netherlands’ Under-19s side and is willing to earn the first senior call-up as soon as possible.

The youngster usually plays as central midfield but can also operate as attacking midfielder or playmaker. The Dutchman is versatile, and this will help him achieve success in future.

It remains to be seen if Arsenal will make a move for the midfielder as Unai Emery is well-equipped in midfield area.
