Arsenal Wants To highjack Valencia’s Full-back Deal

Ajax’s full-back Van Der Wiel seems interested in leaving the club after a long time spent at the Amsterdam team, and even though Valencia are now favourites Arsenal is looking to highjack their negotiations.

“I expect something to happen. I’ve already been at Ajax for quite some years,” Van der Wiel told NUSport.

“It is my club but I’m ready for a new step in my career.”

“I’m 24, which is a good time to go. I also think my departure will be good for my development.

“I have one year left on my contract after this season and I think Ajax will let me go.”
