Arsene Wenger is keen to pair the defender alongside his international team mate Thomas Vermaelen in the heart of the Arsenal back line.
Vertonghen, 24, said: "Arsenal are a magnificent club. I have instructed my agent carefully.
"He knows which clubs I want to join and Arsenal are one of them.
"If a club of their calibre can reach agreement with Ajax then I will gladly go over.
"I went to watch them against Milan, together with my Ajax team-mate Siem de Jong."
