The fact came to light that Barcelona have shortlisted Belgian midfield sensation Arthur Vermeeren for last year. While they search for Sergio Busquets’ long-term replacement.
On the other hand, Vermeeren is becoming closer to Arsenal player who may even finalise the deal in January.
As per Sport, the Belgian would cost about €15 million, and since Barcelona can’t pledge to spending a lot of money in January.
Now it’s almost confirmed, the Spanish side are virtually out of the competition for the 18-year-old.
Arthur Vermeeren and Arsenal; The Future of the saga
North London Gaints Arsenal is confident that Arthur Vermeeren could easily adjust to life in the Premier League. Perhaps it will be their first winter signing.
Obtaining place in the initial squad for Belgium’s championship-winning Royal Antwerp club last season, Vermeeren has dazzled with his poise under pressure and his outstanding ball-winning skills.
His statistics was among the most effective in Europe for his age. Although Arsenal is going a huge injury concern so far this season.
Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, Gabriel Jesus are all such names who have ruled out. In this situation Gunners must need squad depth.
This serves as more proof that Barcelona needs to either move quickly to sign talented players before their rivals do. Otherwise they should secure the player’s dedication and work out a deal later.
The Catalan side continues by mentioning Gabriel Moscardo as a possible substitute, but Chelsea has already expressed an extensive amount of enthusiasm.
Arsenal lost their back to back matches. Even last night they failed against Newcastle United 0-1 following Gordon’s 64 minutes goal.
That’s all portray how much problems they are facing due to injury. So far they need to invest to continue their wonderful starting. Another way things will become more and more wrose for them.
