Arsene Wenger tells Arsenal to sign £45million Premier League defender to make Gunners title contenders


Arsenal have joined the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, Metro has claimed.

Manager Arsene Wenger is determined to build a title-winning squad this summer.

The Gunners will be fully focused on the English Premier League having failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

They already added Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette to their squad but the Frenchman wants to add more quality to his squad.

van Dijk has been heavily linked with Liverpool with recent reports claiming that the Dutchman is ready to force a move to Anfield.

But Wenger will be ready to pounce if the Reds fail to sign the 26-year-old.
