Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld is hoping he can one day follow in the footsteps of fellow Belgians Thomas Vermaelen and Jan Vertonghen.

The 23-year old has recently been linked with a shift away from Amsterdam and although he is happy for now, he has revealed he would love to eventually join a club such as Arsenal or Tottenham just as former Ajax stars Vermaelen and Vertonghen have done in recent years.

"If the time is right, it will come, but now Ajax is the most important thing," he told AT5.

"Therefore I expect that I can be watched in the (Amsterdam) ArenA after the winter break.

"Ajax is a very nice club. It won't be hard to play here all my life - but if I had to choose it have to be a nice club like Ajax again and there aren't many of them.

"But a club such as Arsenal or Tottenham. They are fantastic clubs and would be a step forward."
