20-year-old Boadu is already part of the Dutch national team, having made his goalscoring debut in 2019 in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier 5-0 victory over Estonia.


According to German media outlet Sport 1, he is growing into a major target for next season for Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.

A part of AZ Alkmaar’s youth academy, he is currently on a deal with the Dutch club until June 2023. He is worth roughly around the €15-20m mark.

The 2001-born attacker is touted to be a long-term replacement for any of the next team he signs for, with AC Milan, Liverpool, Ajax, PSG & Juventus already showing their interest in him.

He had his breakthrough season in 2019/20 with AZ, as he scored a remarkable 20 goals in 39 appearances for the club across all competitions.

However, the presence of his no-nonsense controversial Italian-Dutch agent Mino Raiola will be hurdle to negotiate with for clubs.

The U21 prodigy is an athletic and versatile centre-forward, capable of function on the wings as an attacking presence with his poaching instincts.

He has played 37 times for AZ this season, scoring 13 goals and making 2 assists.
