Do not overestimate scoring in Holland, i watch their league regularly and they dont really defend well ...According to Gracenote Alexander Isak is the first foreign player to score 12 goals in 12 league games in the Eredivisie.
If I were his agent I would be sending out feelers to Feyenoord, Ajax, PSV, Herenveen or any of the other big Dutch clubs. Feyenoord in particular since RVB is retiring at the end of the season.
A couple of years in Holland with steady playing time is just what he needs before trying it at in a bigger league again.
Of course. It is a very attack focused league (just look at the amount of goals De Ligt has as a defender. Or that Sanchez had whilst there). It's more impressive to find a good defender in Holland than a good striker.Do not overestimate scoring in Holland, i watch their league regularly and they dont really defend well ...
Danny Loader, 18 year old striker at Reading would be worth following. He looks like he has all the physical elements needed to succeed, and he has stepped up to the first team recently. He is stronger and quicker than in this video now.
Will Hughes has a great engine and a great attitude. The ceiling might not be incredibly high, but he would work well in a "push and run" type game and is also pretty physical in his play. With him, Winks and Eriksen in midfield we would have a lot of movement and energy. Chips in with goals, but he probably could do more in that department. He should probably be aiming to get 8 or 10 a season.
Ludovit Reis is definitely one to watch out for.
Putting up some very promising numbers too.
Only 18 years old, plays in defensive midfield and puts up 3.5 tackles per game and 2.3 interceptions per game.
Think the latest rumours are that he's off to Barcelona -so may be out of our reach now though.
