Arsenal have already made moves for talented Ajax duo Matthijs de Ligt according to a new report in Spain.

Mundo Deportivo claim that the Gunners  want to sign the Dutch youngsters either this summer or next and are willing to make a payment in order to ensure he is not sold to another club.

The deal is said to be part of the club’s plan to recruit young, up and coming stars at the end of the season.

De Ligt is a tall, powerful central defender who is already captain of Ajax despite being just 18 years old.

According to the Spanish newspaper, both Ajax and the player are aware of Arsenal’s  interest, with De Ligt currently weighing up whether it’s the right time to leave Holland for Arsenal.
