Ajax defender, Jan Vertonghen has said he would gladly join Arsenal should the Gunners and the Dutch giants come to an agreeable arrangement.

Thomas Vermaelen`s Belgian team mate had been spotted at Ashburton Grove as Arsenal came agonisingly close to over turning a 4-0 deficit vs. AC Milan a couple of weeks ago sending the red tops and blogosphere into over drive.

However on this occasion it appears as though there could be something in it as the 24 year old claims he`d love to join Arsenal ?. Or maybe another team.

‘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, 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.’


First Mertesacker and now Vermaelen. We better watch ourselves before we get accused of tapping up ?
