Arsenal could move to sign Matthijs De Ligt

Arsenal have reportedly “explored” the possibility of signing Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt this summer, according to The Sun.

The Gunners have emerged as surprise contenders to sign the Dutchman this summer ahead of Unai Emery’s second season in charge at the club.

De Ligt, 19, is a “huge admirer” of the north Londoners and he worked with Dutch legends Dennis Bergkamp and Marc Overmars.
