Arsenal’s hopes of signing Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico appear to be at an end – for this summer at any rate.

The Argentina international took to Ajax’s social media channels on Friday to announce his decision to stay at the club for the time being.

“Hello fans, how are you?” said the 26-year-old. “I want to tell you that I will stay for one more season. Hopefully it will be a great year, like it is this year. A huge hello to all of you,” he said.

Tagliafico has been an integral part of an Ajax side that is on the verge of a first Champions League Final in 23 years.
