Arsenal teenager Dan Crowley is set to undergo a medical with Dutch outfit Willem II after agreeing the terms of a permanent transfer, according to the Daily Mail.
The newspaper claims the 19-year-old creative midfielder is on the verge of signing a brand new three-year contract with the Eredivisie side for a fee which will heavily dependent on his success at the club.
The report claims that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of the player but Crowley was determined to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer as he looks to further develop his career with more first-team action under his belt.
With the player in the final year of his contract, it is said that a number of teams in the lower leagues from Germany and England were interested in landing the teenager but he was convinced to join forces with Willem II by their manager Joris Mathijsen.
The teenager is not the only Arsenal youth-team player who believes that he needs to leave North London in order to further develop his career as forward Kaylen Hinds recently signed a permanent deal with Bundesliga outfit VFL Wolfsburg.
Crowley has spent four years at the Emirates Stadium but he has never made an single appearance for the Arsenal first-team.
The midfielder was sent out on loan to Dutch second tier side Go Ahead Eagles during the January transfer window last season and he impressed with his performances, scoring two goals and providing two assists in 16 matches.
