He will arrive in London with a spring in his step after firing 16 goals in all competitions last term.

His current club snapped him up as a youngster back in 2017 from PSV and he had loan spells away at Cremonese, PEC Zwolle, Ascoli and Genoa before breaking into their first-team.

He is 23 so has the potential to develop in the future and he will provide solid competition with Michail Antonio up top in the next campaign.
