With the transfer window now fast approaching the end, rumours have it that German giants Bayern Munich have now set eyes on one of Arsenal’s most precious targets and are going to battle the English club for his signature.
Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admitted interest in Ajax’s player Jan Vertonghen a long time ago and everybody was expecting the Gunners to be the first to feed on the opportunity to transfer the 23-year-old Belgian.
Vertonghen is a very prized possession being able to play as a defensive midfielder, position he covers for the Belgian national squad, as a central defender, role he plays for Ajax, and as a left-back in case he’s needed, all positions on which Wenger wouldn’t mind improving on.
With Frimpong now gone on loan to Wolverhampton and with Coquelin as the single replacement for first teamer Alex Song, the transfer of Vertonghen seems like the wise thing to do for the French manager who will have to attempt to get Arsenal back in form.
The bad part about Vertonghen is that he already made his appearance in the Champions League for Ajax so will be unavailable, but the good thing is that Wenger will be able to keep Song fresh for the very important fixtures against Milan.
