Arsenal

He’s Rated £11M And The Premiership’s Next Big Thing, But Who Is He?

With a whole host of clubs chasing his signature, Jan Vertonghen is officially in demand.  Depending on who you believe, Arsenal look favourite to sign him or Everton and Liverpool will do battle for the £11 million rated star.

Only 23 and capable of playing in central defence or defensive midfielder – and having been brought up in one of Europe’s best youth systems, Ajax – Vertonghen would be a massive coup for any Premiership club.  Mainly because Barcelona, Juventus and little old Chelsea are after him as well.

He’s got Champions League experience and is a regular in the talented Belgian squad, and reports suggest that he is on his way out of Ajax, but where to?  Could he join up with old teammate Thomas Vermaelen if Wenger tempts him to The Emirates?

Is he right for the Premier League though?  Is he really worth £11 million?  Could you really resist if Barcelona offered you a contract?
