Jan Vertonghen has been made available for transfer from Ajax this summer, according to reports.
The Belgian international has been linked with a handful of clubs across Europe in recent months, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger thought to be on of those keen on bringing the player to England.
Reports in Dutch paper Algemeen Dagblad claim the Godenzonen are now willing to let the player leave the Amsterdam Arena, for the right price, potentially sparking a bidding war for the player.
Wenger is expected to face competition from both Manchester City and Liverpool in the race for the player, with all three tracking a number of defenders so far this summer.
Gary Cahill has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks, while Arsenal are also thought to be monitoring Stefan Savic, a former trialist with the north London club.
The Gunners are desperately searching for defensive reinforcements in the transfer window, with Wenger looking to strengthen in the area after last season's injury crisis at Arsenal.
Vertonghen, a compatriot of Arsenal centre back Thomas Vermaelen, is likely to shoot back up onto the radar given his freshly reported availability.
