Dutch pair de Jong, van Wolfswinkel being tracked by Premier League clubs

Promising Dutch talent Siem de Jong and Ricky van Wolfswinkel have emerged as targets for top Premier League clubs.

22-year Ajax midfielder de Jong, the younger brother of FC Twente ace Luuk, and Sporting Lisbon forward van Wolfswinkel are reported to be attracting interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Liverpool and Manchester United with player agent Louis Laros confirming so.

"I spoke to Newcastle about Luuk [de Jong], his brother Siem and Ricky van Wolfswinkel but I only know they are watching, for a possible transfer it's too early," he told International Business Times.

"I didn't receive a phone call to start negotiations; they are only watching him at the moment.

"Maybe I will get a phone call tomorrow from the club saying they are ready to start negotiations but until then, nothing is happening."

He added: "Clubs like Liverpool, Newcastle, Manchester United and Arsenal they are watching every good young player in Europe, and these guys are one of those players who could be interesting for a lot of clubs.

"They are watching them but they are also watching a lot of other great young players. There has been nothing yet."
