Arsenal are threatening to trump Tottenham for Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen. The Daily Star says the Ajax captain claims he has already been shown around White Hart Lane and chairman Daniel Levy visited him in Amsterdam on Monday.

But the Belgian defender fears the deal will collapse following Spurs' failure to win a Champions League place next season - with Ajax demanding £12.5m.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also wants ­Holland's player of the ­season, who'll skipper ­Belgium against ­Montenegro tonight.
