Have Arsenal Signed Vermaelen

Early, as yet unconfirmed reports, are stating that Arsenal have agreed a fee with Ajax for Belgian international Thomas Vermaelen.  As yet there are no confirmations on any reliable sites.

Vermaelen is a centre back and is 23 years old.  He has played 21 tiems ofr Belgium.

The fee is reported to be in the region of £10 million.

If this is confirmed and we might have to wait until the week-end, it will be the ideal fillip to give Arsenal fans the boost they need after Barry went to Manchester City.  This story comes on the day after Tony Adams claimed that having watched Vermaelen, he does not believe that the Belgian centre back is the man for Arsenal.

  1. Great signing, the captain of Ajax. Hopefully we will get another center back along with Cabaye & Hazard.

  2. Arsenal needs Lori Cana. He do his job quietly and efficiently… We really need him in front of our back four. As for Vermaelen, that’s a great signing. Also, sqaud stability is the most important. No player should leave the emirate stadium this transfer window.

  3. Alex Gitta, Kampala Uganda

    That would be good. We need to stop conceding stupid goals. Mr Wenger we need an LB, a CDM, a CM, a LM and a striker. So tell the board that 13m pounds can’t get these people. They should shut up or cough up the money.
