Arsenal & Manchester United target Maarten Stekelenburg would consider summer exit from Ajax if 'good club' makes offer

28-year-old yet to make contact with any other team
Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has admitted that he would consider leaving the club this summer if a good offer appears, with Arsenal and Manchester United expected to lodge bids.

Although the Dutch international admitted that his heart isn't set on a departure this year, he did reveal that he would be open to a move if a top team makes a bid. UK exclusively reported on Saturday that Arsene Wenger has made the goalkeeper one of his top targets when the summer window opens, despite the progress of youngster Wojciech Szczesny.

And the experienced goalkeeper's admission that he would consider a move may be music to Wenger's ears.

He told Echo: "I don't necessarily have to leave Ajax this summer. However, I'm willing to think about it if a good club comes up at the end of the season.

"All I can do is prove my worth on the pitch and that's what I'm doing this term. We'll just have to wait and see whether anything interesting comes up.

"I've heard a lot of crazy stories in the past few months. That's obviously nice to hear, because it's a sign that you're apparently doing a good job. However, I haven't been in touch with any clubs yet."

Stekelenburg's Ajax side take on Anderlecht in the Europa League last 32 second leg on Thursday, leading 3-0 from the away leg in Belgium.
