Ismaïl Aissati is fast becoming one of the most highly rated young players in Holland, and at 19 year old the PSV Eindhoven midfielder has plenty of time to improve and learn from the rest of his Netherlands team mates.

What a crop of fellow youngsters he has around him on the scene to learn from too; with Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart among some of Holland's best attacking midfielders, Aissati is sure to learn from the very best.

The PSV Eindhoven man made his debut for FC Twente (where he was on loan) in January 2007, and has since gone from strength to strength.

Aissati was a crucial member of the Dutch under 21 side that won the tournament in 2007. Standing at only 5 foot 8, the midfielder benefits from a lot of pace and an uncanny ability to dribble past defenders.

Such was the impression Aissati made this season just gone for PSV, it is understood that several Premiership sides including Newcastle made an offer for the player.

AC Milan, Inter, Sevilla and Arsenal also continue to hold a long-term interest in the youngster.
