Transfer news: Arsenal and Tottenham target Adam Maher has ruled out a move to north London when he leaves Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in the summer.
The 19-year-old expects to move at the end of the season and his coach Gertjan Verbeek last week said the Holland midfielder has the quality to make it in the Premier League with the Gunners.
Rivals Spurs are thought to have monitored the Moroccan born ace who has been valued at £8.5million, but PSV Eindhoven are primed to snap him up.
Maher, who has bagged 19 goals in as many games for his boyhood club, confirmed his plans, telling NUSport: “I have already said that I do not want to go [to Arsenal].
“I want a good stay in the Netherlands, at least another two to three years.
“Last summer and last winter I indicated I want to go to PSV, but PSV was the only club that wanted to sign me. But I can also play for Ajax too.”
