Eredivisie powerhouse Ajax could lose yet another key player at the end of the season as defender Jan Vertonghen has revealed that he's ready to move to a bigger club. The Amsterdam side previously lost Urby Emanuelson and Luis Suarez in the winter transfer window.
"I'll be honest about the alleged interest of Milan and Arsenal. I haven't heard anything from them just yet. They haven't approached me personally and haven't spoken to my agent or club either," said Vertonghen to Het Nieuwsblad.
"There has been some interest in me before, but never from this kind of clubs. Obviously, I've heard Milan director Adriano Galliani talk about me me after the Champions League match in San Siro and his words were very flattering.
"This is the right moment for me to leave Ajax. It's not as if I'm desperate to move on, but I feel like I'm ready to join a bigger club. I'm a big fan of the Premier League, but you can't say no when a club like Milan come knocking."
The 23-year-old Vertonghen's current contract with the Godenzonen runs until the summer of 2013.
