Posted on | May 9, 2012 | No Comments

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen declared recently that he wants to move to Premier League at the end of the season. The Belgian defender has one more year contract with the Dutch club and Ajax would have to sell it this year in order to not lose him on a free.

Arsenal and Tottenham were the most interested clubs to sign the player. It looks like Tottenham will be his next destination as he announced his club that he prefers them to Arsenal.

Even if  Tottenham are not sure of Champions League footbal for the next season probably Vertonghen pick them because he considered that he would have more chances of playing as a center-back.

The Belgian international is a very versatile player as he can play also as a left back or as a defensive midfielder. The transfer sum will be around €10 millions.

Arsenal will be very disappointed if this transfer will be done. Wenger is an admirer of the Belgian defender and put him on the top of the transfer list for the next season.
