Bazoer poised for Bundesliga switch

Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Riechedly Bazoer is set for a move to the Bundesliga after manager Peter Bosz confirmed the youngster had played his last game for the club.

Reports in German media claim the Netherlands international is on his way to struggling VfL Wolfsburg, which would be a major coup for the club, amid reported interest from AC Milan and Arsenal.

The 20-year-old burst onto the scene with the Eredivisie giants last season with five goals in 39 appearances across all competitions, but this season he's fallen out of favour with Bosz since making his intentions clear that he'd like to move on.

According to De Telegraaf, his agent and brother, Irchandly, met with Wolfsburg officials recently to negotiate a deal for the Utrecht-born player.

"Riechedly and I had a good conversation on Saturday afternoon," Bosz told the club's official website. "He reported that his transfer is in the final phase – and I also understand this from Marc [Overmars, director of football].

"We will play, in the next eight days, three very important matches, in between three scheduled rehabilitation courses and two tactical training sessions.

"This training is not for him as he has a view to a new club, which is why we gave him freedom from training to work with players who are focused on our next opponent.

"We shook hands and parted in a good way."
