Arsenal have joined the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, according to the Express.
The centre-back has been strongly linked with a move away from St Mary’s Stadium this summer with a whole host of clubs interested in securing his services.
Liverpool remain in the hunt, while Chelsea and Manchester City have also thrown their hat into the ring though Arsene Wenger is keen to steal a march on his rivals as he looks to assemble a squad capable of finishing back in the top four following last season’s disappointment.
Van Dijk has played sixty-eight times in all competitions since signing for the Saints from Celtic in the summer of 2015, scoring for them seven times.
During his time in Scotland the twenty-six year old won back to back Premiership titles as well as also helping his side to success in the League Cup in his second season.
