VVV Venlo's Ruud Boymans hopes his potential move to AZ Alkmaar will be wrapped up in the near future.
The 22-year-old striker is contracted in Venlo until next year, but has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer.
Premier League and Championship clubs have previously thought to be monitoring the youngster, while VVV's Eredivisie rivals ADO Den Haag have also reportedly expressed their interest.
However, it appears AZ are winning the race for his signature, and Boymans is hoping to complete a move sooner rather than later.
"I must still be officially released by the club," Boymans told Voetbal International. "And after that I must agree a deal with AZ.
"But I expect and hope that within a few days it will all come about.
"If this transfer goes through, it will be a dream come true for me.
"Four years ago I wouldn't have believed this would be an option, I would have laughed. I have had a lot of misfortune."
Boymans has been plagued by injury over recent seasons and struggled for goals in the second half of VVV's last campaign.
"It's been a very difficult period," he added. "I was fit, but I have not scored.
"Mentally I have learned a lot. I still have closed the season with a good feeling."
