French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Dutch Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar for the signing of youngster Myron Boadu for an undisclosed fee. The young talent has finally chosen to sign for Monaco as he believes that is the club where he will get the most opportunities to continue his development. After a break-out season at Alkmaar in the Dutch Eredivisie last season, he started drawing attention from a host of European clubs, with Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea all understood to have made inquiries about snapping him up from the Dutch league.

The youngster, who plays for the Netherlands youth team, rose through the ranks at Alkmaar and was promoted from the club’s youth academy after he was sighted as a player with a bright future because of the potential he showed during a training session with the senior team. His promotion to the first team was a well-earned one as he deserved every chance he was given to play for the senior side.

He was said to be close to joining German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund some weeks ago, with reports claiming that he would get the chance to hone his skills at the German side because of their reputation of giving young players a chance. However, those reports appeared to be false as Monaco were the only club that came very close to Alkmaar to talk about signing him.

He has now signed a long-term contract at the club after agreeing to put pen to paper on a five-year deal. He is regarded as one of the most exciting young players of his age and he is expected to play a part in Monaco’s season in the Ligue 1 as they kick off their campaign in the next coming days.
