Developed in Willem II’s academy, the youngster can play off both wings but is more frequently used off the right.
He Joined Ajax just this summer but will now be part of Arsenal’s Professional Development Phase where he can play for the Under-18s and Under-23s.
This comes as the Gunners’ second recent arrival looking to bolster the Under-23s and Under-18s after the club’s initial business was done earlier in the window.

18-year-old striker Nikolaj Moller was announced to have joined the club early on Tuesday [October 6] to fill the void left in the striking positions by Tyreece John-Jules [on loan at Doncaster Rovers] and Sam Greenwood [sold to Leeds United].
Another winger, George Lewis was the first foray into the market for youngsters and that was shortly followed by the additions of Salah-Eddine, Tim Akinola and Jonathan Dinzeyi.
These signings will prove crucial for Steve Bould in the 2020/21 campaign as having his squad impress so much last season meant that many of his players were sent out on loan to prove themselves at first team level.
