The Eredivisie might not have the financial clout of other leagues in Europe like the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A or La Liga, but you're just as likely to find talented transfer targets there as anywhere else.
In recent seasons, players like Luis Suarez, Jan Vertonghen, Johnny Heitinga and Wilfried Bony have all made the journey from Holland's top flight to England's top league. Others like Rafael van der Vaart, Royston Drenthe and Ricky van Wolfswinkel have all played in England, as well as La Liga among others.
There are some very, very good players in Holland who often go under the radar because they don't play in a "glamorous" league. Make no mistake, the Eredivisie is where some of the top young talents in European football, like Ajax's Christian Eriksen (pictured), ply their trade and it's only a matter of time before they move on to pastures new.
Join me as I run through five current (as of this writing) Eredivisie players who could well attract some interest in January.
It says a lot about Georginio Wijnaldum's character that at the tender age of 22, he's already the captain at PSV Eindhoven.
In the last couple of seasons, he's scored 26 league goals in 57 league appearances, which isn't a bad record at all. The talented playmaker can affect the game from just behind the main striker or create chances from out wide.
If he can progress this season the way he has over the last couple of years since moving to PSV, it will surely just be a matter of time before he pops up at one of the bigger clubs in Europe.
Sticking with PSV Eindhoven players for just a minute, let's take a look at their young full-back Jetro Willems.
Already a full Dutch international at the age of 19, Willems caught the eye of former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson late in 2011, when the then United manager reportedly viewed him as a long-term replacement for Patrice Evra.
Willems' current contract with PSV doesn't expire until 2016, but the fact he's already been scouted by Manchester United must be a good indication that he'll go on to play at an even higher level than he is now.
Apart from an ill-fated spell at Inter Milan where injuries and a lack of form affected his game, Luc Castaignos has already shown that he's got enough about him at this early stage in his career to court the interest of several Premier League clubs. The Daily Mail previously reported the interest of Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton.
Comfortable using either his left or right foot, Castaignos still has plenty of time to show everyone how good he is and if he starts this season well, he may once again attract the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs.
Sometimes, it seems like Bojan Krkic is a lot older than he actually is. That's probably down to the fact he made his debut for Barcelona almost six years ago when he was only 17.
Krkic has spent the last couple of years in Italy and although he returned to Barcelona earlier this summer, he's been on the move again, this time to Ajax. There's no denying the young forward's talent, but he's never had a prolonged, first-team run in any side. Until he gets that, we might never know if he'll ever fulfill his potential.
However, if he's able to use his time at Ajax to put himself in the shop window then maybe, just maybe, we'll see just exactly how good he is.
With all due respect to Ajax, I'm amazed that Christian Eriksen hasn't been picked up by one of Europe's big clubs. Ajax used to be a major force in Europe, but they're not now and someone with Eriksen's talents deserves to be playing on the grandest stage of all.
He reads the game like someone with 10-plus years of experience, his vision is tremendous and he's an all-round excellent midfield player. If there's one thing he needs to add to his game, it's goals. He's scored just 25 times in 112 league games for Ajax.
Ajax should be concerned. If they can't tie him down to a new deal, then he's essentially free to leave the club next summer. Either that, or they sell him for a fraction of what he's worth in January. I'd be very surprised if Christian Eriksen is still an Ajax player by the end of the January transfer window.
