Inter Milan are keeping tabs on Thomas Vermaelen's situation at Arsenal.
Vermaelen has struggled for first team football this season, but remains highly regarded across the continent.
Italian media sources say Inter chiefs are weighing up a January move for the Belgium international, armed with fresh funds from new owner Erick Thohir.
However, Inter won't get a clear run at Vermaelen, with Rafa Benitez's Napoli also keen.
