Reported Arsenal target Jan Vertonghen has revealed there are "a dozen" options available to him if he makes his expected exit from Ajax in the summer.
The defender is contracted in Amsterdam until June 2013 but has made no secret of the fact he wants to take on a new challenge abroad at the end of the season, having named the Premier League as his preferred destination.
The Gunners are thought to be keen on the Belgium international, while North London rivals Tottenham have also been linked with his signature.
The latest club to have emerged as potential suitors are Primera Liga giants Barcelona, who are believed to be keeping an eye on the 24-year-old.
Vertonghen, who has previously revealed he would be open to moves to Arsenal or Spurs, has now said there are 12 clubs he would consider.
He told Voetbal International: "There are a dozen clubs on my list."
Vertonghen scored during Ajax's 2-0 victory at ADO Den Haag at the weekend as the capital club push for the Eredivisie title this season.
