Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is preparing to leave at the end of the season. The Belgian has been linked with Manchester United and Napoli this week.

The Daily Mail says Vermaelen's advisers are lining up the Arsenal skipper's next move. He has been on the sidelines for most of the season due to Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny's outstanding partnership.

The Belgian will hold talks with manager Arsene Wenger at the end of the season. But his representatives are making moves to ensure he has other offers if he leaves Arsenal.
