Ajax defender Easmon isn't the only player to have gone viral over his height this year.
PSG defender and perhaps the tallest 12-year-old in world football right now, El Chadaille Bitshiabu, broke the internet after a number of top clubs expressed an interest in the youngster.
According to reports in France, Manchester City, Arsenal and Barcelona have watched the talented player, who is already 1.90m (6'2) tall.

El Chadaille, who was born in 2005, can also be seen on a weekly basis towering over his teammates and opposition.
In fact, during the Promises tournament in Tenerife, the club had to reportedly provide evidence that he was 12 years old due to his remarkable height and size.
Sevilla's giant Senegalese striker Ibrahima Sow is also making waves in the youth system at La Liga side Sevilla, aged 12.
The youngster scored a remarkable 29 goals in all competitions last season. Sow uses his pace and power to dominate opponents, and his hold up play is second to none.
His lightning quick feet also helps the Sevilla U12 captain in tricky situations.
I mean, just check out this goal he scored against Real Betis. He's got it all.
IBRA scores a goal Zlatan would have been proud of!
