Sampdoria to Sign the Dutchman on Loan after the Completion of the Transfer

The 19-year-old is one of the biggest young midfielders in Dutch football. Ihattaren is expected to complete the deal and move to Sampdoria on loan before the end of the transfer window tomorrow.

A product of the famed PSV youth academy, Ihattaren joined the club at the age of eight and progressed through the youth system before making his debut for the senior team in 2019. The midfielder was the first player from the PSV youth academy to make his senior team debut before playing for the reserves side. Ihattaren made four appearances for the senior team before making his debut for the reserves.

Ihattaren has been a part of the PSV first-team since 2019. The midfielder established himself as a first-team regular under Mark van Bommel during the 2019/20 season. But following the appointment of Roger Schmidt, Ihattaren has lost his place in the starting line-up. The midfielder struggled with poor form. A couple of months later tensions rose between the German manager and the player that broke down the relationship with the manager.

The broken relationship saw Ihattaren look to secure a move out of the club. The midfielder was officially axed from the PSV squad due to disciplinary reasons. The Dutchman had missed sessions to move to the training ground of French side Nice in hopes of securing a move to France.

In three seasons with PSV, Ihattaren has made 70 appearances and scored nine goals. He is also the youngest player to score a penalty in the Eredivisie, breaking Ronald Koeman’s record.
