The Belgian centre-back has grown frustrated with his lack of Premier League playing time under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, and there are suggestions that he could look for a move away.
Arsenal desperately need defensive reinforcements, and Arsene Wenger was known to be interested in the former Ajax man before he made the move to Tottenham in 2012.
With so many injuries to the squad Arsenal could surely offer Vertonghen the first team football he is looking for, and if the French manager is still interested in the 27-year-old then now could be the perfect time to make a move.
The Tottenham star originally opted for a move to White Hart Lane after it became clear that Arsene Wenger saw his future as a defensive midfielder rather than a centre-back, but with Arsenal’s current situation Vertonghen will more than likely get the chance to be played in his preferred position.
