Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag has revealed that defender Nicolas Tagliafico has the opportunity to quit the club this summer.
Tagliafico joined the Amsterdam side in 2018 and helped the club win the Eredivisie last campaign and reach the Champions League semi final.
The full-back has been mentioned to both Arsenal and Chelsea over the last 12 months but the west Londoners may find the news more useful in their quest for Ben Chilwell.
Reports have claim that the Ajax defender is who Leicester would look to find their successor should the Blues or Manchester City sign the England international.
The Gunners are also keen on the 27-year-old, with manager Mikel Arteta keen to bring in a new left back to allow youngster Bukayo Saka to move further up the field to play a more advanced role.
They are preparing for a big summer in the transfer window, with the future of star attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang surrounded by uncertainty amid interest from Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Erik told Het Parool: “The transfer market will start in August. The top leagues are now being played out, so the money flows are maintained. The market value of players will be slightly depressed, but not much.
“Based on their performance and ambition, a number of our players also want to make the move abroad.
“Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it must be clear whether the market is indeed breaking loose.”
In other news, Arsenal have been put on red alert as Everton will allegedly be offered the chance to land John Stones from Manchester City this summer.
