The Arsenal transfer target Jan Vertonghen has spoken yet again about his interest in joining the Gunners in the summer if the Premiership side will be able to agree on terms with the club he currently plays for, Ajax.
According to the defensive star he already went to visit Arsenal’s stadium in the second Champions League leg against AC Milan, but he didn’t sign with the Gunners yet and Wenger didn’t speak of any potential deal with Ajax.
“I have instructed my agent carefully. He knows which clubs I want to join, and Arsenal are one of them,” he said.
“Arsenal are a magnificent club and I hear a lot of good things about English football,” he added. “If a club of Arsenal’s calibre can reach agreement with Ajax, then I will gladly go over.
“I haven’t signed anything with them yet. But I went to watch them against Milan, together with my Ajax team-mate Siem de Jong, after Vermaelen invited us.”
Vertonghen will probably have to adapt to playing on different positions if he’ll join Arsenal. He usually acts as a central defender at Ajax, but he’s a defensive midfielder when playing for Belgium and the Gunners will probably need him as a midfielder as well judging on the quite large number of talented central defenders the club already has.
Do you think transferring him is a good idea for Wenger?
