Vertonghen admits Arsenal interest

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has revealed he would "gladly" join Arsenal in the summer.

• Podolski hints at Arsenal U-turn

The Belgium international has been linked with a move to both Tottenham and Arsenal, but the Gunners appear to be the frontrunners to secure Vertonghen's signature after he was spotted at Emirates Stadium during Arsenal's 3-0 win over AC Milan.

Vertonghen is under contract at Ajax until the end of next season, but the Dutch side are expected to cash in this summer with the centre-half reluctant to sign a new deal.

Newcastle are also believed to be interested in Vertonghen, but the Belgian admits a move to Arsenal does appeal.

"I have instructed my agent carefully," Vertonghen said. "He knows which clubs I want to join, and Arsenal are one of them.

"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 [Thomas] Vermaelen invited us."
