Arsenal are being credited with an interest in two of Feyenoord's brightest prospects.Arsenal are being credited with an interest in two of Feyenoord's brightest prospects.
The Gunners are no strangers to raids on De Kuip, having signed Robin van Persie last summer, and reports are suggesting Arsene Wenger has trained his sights on Salomon Kalou and Gianni Zuiverloon.
Kalou is the younger brother of now Auxerre forward Bonaventure and has won many fans with his mature displays for Feyenoord this term.
The 19-year-old has formed a formidable partnership with Dirk Kuyt at De Kuip and has impressed scouts from a string of Europe's top clubs.
Spanish side Valencia are believed to be keen, but reports are saying Arsenal are ready to rival any interest from the Mestalla.
Feyenoord are eager to keep the Ivory Coast star in Rotterdam, but have yet to reach agreement over a contract extension.
Kalou has a further two years to run on his deal, but is eager to secure a substantial pay rise after establishing himself as a first team regular this term.
Zuiverloon has made just a couple of appearances for Feyenoord, but is extremely highly rated by manager Ruud Gullit and he is sure to resist any offers from The Premiership for a player he believes could be capable of playing at the highest level in the future.
