Barcelona have agreed a deal for Thomas Vermaelen
Barcelona have agreed a £15 million deal for Arsenal Defender Thomas Vermaelen.
Barcelona have jumped one step further than Manchester United in the race for Arsenal and Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen.
With Vermaelen about to undergo a medical, the 28 year old will leave the Emirates very soon and will become the tenth player to exit Arsenal this summer if the deal should go through.
Vermaelen has been at Arsenal since the Summer of 2009, where he scored the most goals that season – with 8 in the back of the net. Vermaelen has scored a total of 15 goals and has gained the captaincy at Arsenal. Should the deal go through he will have to shift roles as captain of the club.
