The 23 year old defender has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium with the Gunners readying an £8m bid for the former Dutch Under 21 international and the Parkhead star wants to make the move, stating;

‘Arsenal are an amazing club,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘It’s a big club with a great history. I’m happy here just now and I want to play well and we’ll see what happens in the future.

‘Until there are bids I can’t say thing.’

Celtic would demand around £15m for van Dijk and that may be a price Arsene Wenger is willing to pay given the injury issues he’s suffered at the back, the sale of Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona and Per Mertesacker’s less than glorious start to the campaign.
