Arsenal battling Tottenham for Ajax stopper Jan Vertonghen

Ajax central defender Jan Vertonghen is wanted by Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Sunday Express says a senior deputation from White Hart Lane ran the rule over Belgian Vertonghen, 24, during Ajax's midweek 4-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.

The £10million-rated stopper is also on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger's wishlist.

But Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has made recruiting a commanding central defender a priority - though Ajax would fight off any move until the summer.
