Vertonghen Would 'Gladly' Join Magnificent Arsenal

Vertonghen Would 'Gladly' Join Magnificent Arsenal

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 …

It seems as though Arsene Wenger continues his search for the world's most difficult to spell defensive unit.

Would Vertonghen be bought as a LB, DMF or as a replacement for Mert? Do you think having TV and JV at Arsenal would increase the lure for EH?

Why would he be signed as a replacement for Mert? The guy has only been here for 6 and a half months.

If anything he would be a replacement for Djourou.

and Djourou just signed a contract extension if I'm not mistaken, so I don't see this happening unless Wenger sees him as a DM rather than a CB.

He is a Utility player which is a good thing to have. If you ask me, Song does need competition; JD signing a new contract only serves to give us good value for him, if he is to be shipped out with squilacci. We have cried out for quality; nothing wrong with having a stronger squad of CBs. If Wenger is interested, go for him and sell or release the aforementioned CBs.

If he is used at DM, then good. But at CB, his coming would overcrowd an area in which we already have loads of options.

I don't see it happening DBerg but he is a CB who can play LB or DCM. He is too good to be a 4th choice CB and utility player like Djourou. I really didn't take to Mert: he was week in the air, slow on the turn, slow generally. He has a great standing tackle but players running at him beat him too often. He seems like a nice guy and he is undoubtedly seen as a good defender but I don't think he works at Arsenal. I don't mind us being ruthless to get the best team possible.
