Roma to swoop for Arsenal target Vermaelen

Italian giants AS Roma are on the verge of signing Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen, according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Vermaelen has struggled with persistent injuries since his £15million move from Arsenal to Barcelona back in 2014 and as a result, the Catalan giants are now keen on dispensing with the services of the Belgian international this summer.

A move back to England with Arsenal had been seen as a possibility for Vermaelen but now according to reputed journalist Di Marzio, the 30-year-old is close to agreeing a deal with Italian giants Roma instead.
