Jozy Altidore has been on a tear for Dutch side AZ Alkmaar this season, netting 31 goals in all competitions and setting an American record for goals scored in Europe in the process.

Jozy Altidore has been on a tear for Dutch side AZ Alkmaar this season, netting 31 goals in all competitions and setting an American record for goals scored in Europe in the process. 

He has been a worthy investment for AZ Alkmaar, as Altidore has score 51 goals in his 91 appearances for the club, though none were more crucial than his last. Up 1-0 in the Dutch Cup, Altidore dummied two defenders and fired a shot too hot for the keeper to handle, giving Alkmaar the vital 2-0 cushion they needed to see PSV Eindhoven out with a 2-1 victory. It was their first title since 1982, seven years before Altidore was born. 

The young striker will certainly attract offers from bigger clubs in Europe after his two-year destruction of the Dutch league. Alkmaar will either have one of the hottest strikers in the game on their squad next season, or make a boatload of money selling the prospect who finally developed.
