Dutch report: Manchester United defender target would be perfect for Arsenal


Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij would be a perfect signing for Arsenal, according to Voetbal International.

The Dutchman enjoyed a very positive season at Lazio last season with Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal ready to make a move to bring him at Old Trafford according to reports in England.

He joins a long list of Lazio players who could leave the club after a brilliant campaign ended with an impressive win away against Napoli with which the Biancocelesti secured a place in next season's Champions League play-offs.

Speaking to De Telegraaf at the start of the month, the defender said: "I think I have made a great step forward in Serie A in my debut season.

"People say I've changed my style of play since moving to Italy, which is almost true.

"I analyse my performance in every game, as I can correct mistakes in the next games.

"Dirk Kuyt, Robin Van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben all told me that you can learn many things while playing abroad.

"I am feeling the truth on those words at this moment."
