The Heerenveen player has also attracted interest from the likes of Anderlecht, so the Championship side will face stiff competition in the race for his signature.

But he could be a smart signing in order to improve the team’s midfield options.

The 22-year-old has earned a positive reputation for his performances in the Eredivisie this season, helping the club eighth in the Dutch top flight.

If a fee can be agreed in the coming weeks, then van Ewijk could find himself the latest signing to arrive at the CBS Arena.
