Arsenal are keen to sign one of Europe’s top youth prospects, Mathias De Ligt according to The Mirror.
The Gunners have been scouting the promising centre back for over a year.
At just 19 years of age De Ligt is already the captain of Ajax and has caught the eye of top clubs around Europe.
The centre back has formed a strong partnership at the back with Virgil Van Dijk for the Netherlands national side.
Arsenal have been keen on the defender for a long while but they will have to face off some tough competition this summer for De Ligt’s signature.
PSG and Juventus are the only clubs that have officially made an approach to Ajax over a potential transfer. It has also been reported that there is interest from Barcelona and Manchester City along with Arsenal.
