Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen back on Arsenal radar

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen remains on the radar of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The Belgium international was surprised to see the summer market close without getting a move to England, where he is also interesting Manchester City and Liverpool.

Vertonghen is close to Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen and is viewed by manager Arsene Wenger as a cheaper alternative to Bolton Wanderers' Gary Cahill.

Dutch sources say the Belgian is part of an extensive January shopping list drawn up by Wenger, which also includes midfield pair Mario Götze (Borussia Dortmund) and Kevin Anin (Sochaux).
