The PSV star looks set to swap the Netherlands for the Premier League.
Former PSV Eindhoven boss Dick Advocaat thinks midfielder Kevin Strootman should move to the Premier League with Liverpool and Tottenham keeping tabs on the Dutchman, reports De Telegraaf.
Strootman has been a stalwart in the PSV side this season playing 34 of their 36 matches in the Eredivisie and helping to guide the club to second in the table.
Advocaat managed the 23-year-old throughout the 2012/13 season and now he has left his position to be replaced by Phillip Cocu, has voiced his beliefs that the Dutchman should move to England to further his career.
“For PSV it would be good if he stays, but for Strootman himself it’s better to leave,” the 65-year-old stated.
Advocaat then went on to say that Spurs and Liverpool would be realistic destinations for the Dutch international, but that he believes that Strootman is even good enough for the Manchester clubs.
The midfielder’s 16 assists for PSV make him the joint fifth biggest provider of goals in Europe this season and his creativity would be a welcome addition at either Anfield or White Hart Lane.
Strootman has played 16 times for his country since making his Netherlands debut in 2011 and could join a long list of players from the nation that have made a successful career in the Premier League.
The Dutchman is valued at £10,5million by football website transfermarkt.com and therefore would be attainable at something of a bargain price if the midfielder is as good as Advocaat says.
