As reported by The Daily Mirror, Arsenal are interested in signing Ajax’s impressive teenage defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

What’s the story?

The Gunners are all set to have a big squad overhaul this summer with supporters left desperately disappointed with yet another lacklustre season.

One player that could make the switch to the Emirates Stadium is Ajax starlet Matthijs de Ligt, who has emerged as one of the most exciting defensive prospects in Europe.

That’s according to The Mirror, who report that Gunners scouts were there to see him action for the Netherlands against England last week.

Rated at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, can Arsenal land a young defender that can help improve their defensive options in the short and long-term?
