Velthuizen is rated as one of the most promising 'keepers in Europe and has established himself as Vitesse's first choice this season.

The 21-year-old committed his future to the club before Christmas when signing a contract extension through to 2011.

He has been linked with Feyenoord, but was watched by an Arsenal scout during Vitesse's 2-2 draw with Ajax on Sunday.

The Gunners could bring in a new 'keeper in the summer, with German veteran Jens Lehmann expected to leave the club.
