Arsenal are set to enter the race for top prospect Matthijs De Ligt in the summer.
The 19-year-old Ajax centre-back is reportedly wanted by Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona and Juventus.
According to The Sun, the Gunners are now set to enter the race for a £75m-rated talent – but they’ll need two things to happen to make the switch happen.
The north London club will need to qualify for the Champions League and offload big earner Mesut Ozil in order to enable them to meet Ajax’s valuation.
The teenager is already captain of the Amsterdam club and has won 13 caps for the Netherlands, making him a man in demand.
Whilst Premier League clubs are determined to land De Ligt, it appears clubs elsewhere may be in the best position to land the youngster.
Barcelona will welcome his team-mate Frenkie De Jong in the summer, which could give them an advantage.
Reports in Italy from Tuttosport, meanwhile, claim Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici travelled to Amsterdam last week in an attempt to lure De Ligt to Turin.
