"Arsenal have joined the race" - Gunners in shock move to sign defender wanted by Chelsea and Manchester City


Arsenal have joined the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, according to the Sun.

Liverpool were strong favourites to sign the player before they apologised for making an illegal move to sign him.

Chelsea and Manchester City are also interested in the player who joined the Saints for £13million in 2015.

The Gunners have already showed that they mean business this summer after breaking their transfer record to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

And manager Arsene Wenger is eager to add more quality to his squad.

The 26-year-old Dutchman has a market transfer value of £50million, a fee the North Londoners are ready to pay to strengthen their defensive department ahead of next season.
