Arsene Wenger will step up efforts to bring Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen to Arsenal in the summer after the player admitted he will consider leaving the Dutch giants.

The 23-year-old, left-footed centre-back was linked with a £15million move to several Premier League clubs in January but he now says he wants to leave to enhance his career.

“In January, the departure was never an option,” he said to MilanNews. “But in the summer I might consider leaving for the first time.”

The Belgian defender plays alongside Arsenal star Thomas Vermaelen in the national side and Wenger has long thought they would make the ideal partnership at the heart of the Gunners defence.

Arsenal have been watching Vertonghen for a while now and see him as able to play as a defensive midfielder as well as a centre-back.
