Deal Close: Arsene Wenger on the verge of completing move for $93million star signing

Arsenal do need to strengthen the central defense in the upcoming winter transfer window and the club are already linked with Southampton's Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutch star is one of the best center halves in the Premier League. He has been linked with a move away from the Saints in the summer as well but eventually chooses to stay with Southampton.

Now, according to the Times, Manchester City are reportedly targeting the signing of the 26-year-old, who has been on Liverpool's radar for a long time.

Moreoever, the British media have mentioned that Wenger is also preparing to splash the cash to sign the former Celtic star, who is rated at 70 million pounds ($93million).

The center-half was left out of his side's squad for the entire month of August due to transfer speculation. After that, van Dijk has played 12 matches in the Premier League. On Saturday, the Dutchman was left out of the bench in the defeat against Chelsea.

Virgil van Dijk is an highly top-rated defender will serve as an upgrade on ageing Per Mertesacker who has not been impressive for Arsenal in recent time. Let us know if you think Wenger should sign Virgil van Dijk this January.
