Premier League clubs are queuing for Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen.

The Telegraph says Vertonghen, who is valued at £10 million, has already said a move to Arsenal to play alongside his fellow Belgian international, Thomas Vermaelen, would interest him.

Manchester United and Manchester City have also taken a look at the Ajax captain, but his main priority is to sign for a club in the Champions League and Newcastle United feel they are still in the running to land him.

Newcastle’s chief scout, Graham Carr, has been monitoring Vertonghen for at least two years and Alan Pardew, the manager, has also been to see the 24 year-old play on a number of occasions.
