He revealed that he is open to offers too and could be the player to provide the steel that is needed in the centre of the park at the top of the Premier League.
The Dutch international has been tracked by the giants in Europe for a long time and now seems to be at the perfect age to fly the nest at the Phillips Stadium.
He is a deep lying playmaker which appears to be a trouble position to fill for those in the upper echelons of World football. Strootman though has established his poise to handle this long ago.
The Eredivisie has provided great value in recent times despite the financial troubles in Spain and the French market taking the eyes of the vultures in England in the last transfer window.
He has netted 6 times this season too, so is not just a playmaker looking to thread the passes for other players to add the finishing touches.
Having featured from under 17 right through to the full national team for the Netherlands, and having 141 career appearances, he is ready to make the step up.
