Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong,Justin Kluivert- Ajax Amsterdam has come out with alot of big names in recent times. The club’s youth academy products are experts of gifted young talents across the Netherlands. Such is David Easmon, but the U-14 youth can easily deceive your eyes. See for yourself.
The young Dutch central back is curerrently at the youth academy, but the sheer size of the teenager is already gathering attention around the Johan Cruyff Arena, and some are even addressing him as the ‘next Virgil van Dijk’.
The 14 year old starred against an under 14 game versus the Sparta Rotterdam youth yesterday and photos of him in action was uploaded on Twitter by fan account FootballFunnys. His opponent really pales in physical comparison.

On the same day, the Ajax youth team also tweeted on the young defender.
👀 | ONE TO WATCH #12:
• 👤 David Easmon (14, #AjaxU15)
• 📍 Defender
• 🌟 Has a great season so far with U15! Scored and assisted, last Saturday!

The match was won 6-2 by the Jews, and Easmon netted in two goals and provided one assist.
However, Easmon isn’t the only ‘grown up’ kid in youth football. Ibrahima Sow, the Sevilla under 12 captain already towers at 5 feet 7 inches. And of course, Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian striker who was already mismatching with his under 13 squad?
Big clubs will keep an eye out for Easmon and Sow in the coming years.
