Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico feels that the coming transfer window represents a good moment to move on from the Dutch giants, according to the Daily Mirror.
They report that Arsenal are keen to bring the Argentine left back to the Emirates Stadium this summer and that the Gunners should be buoyed by his recent comments.
Tagliafico said: “I think in the summer it could be a natural time to take the step. It’s flattering because I think it’s the most competitive league.
“When you are a child, the target is to come to Europe and play in a top league like the Premier League.”
Tagliafico appears keen to progress his career, but already has good experience at international level – he has previously captained his country – and in the Champions League with Ajax.
He has been able to adapt to European football and the footballing philosophy of the Dutch outfit with relative ease, and added vital experience as they have breezed into the quarter-finals of the Champions League this season, stunning Real Madrid in the process.
And Arsenal need defensive reinforcements desperately; Nacho Monreal is moving towards the twilight of his career and Sead Kolasinac is not a particularly diligent defender, preferring to rampage forward instead.
