North London club Arsenal are undoubtedly in the transfer market for a top central defender this summer transfer window, with Germany international defender Per Mertesacker now ageing and lacking in pace, and Calum Chambers and Gabriel still not settled at the premier league club.
If reports in the Daily Star is anything to go by, then former Arsenal captainThomas Vermaelen could be set for a sensational return to the Emirates club to partner France international defender Laurent Koscielny.
The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order the more, following the Catalan’s signing of Lucas Digne and Samuel Umtiti, and this has increased his chances of making a sensational return to the English Premier League.
The Belgium international defender who was injured all through the 2014/2014 season, played only ten matches in the League last season, helping his team to keep clean sheets six times.
The defender did put his injury worries behind him at the recently concluded European championship, playing four matches for his country in 14 days.
Vermaelen is extremely comfortable on the ball and sniffing out danger easily, on the average, he forces clean sheets roughly once every 3 top-flight games during his initial spell at the Emirate stadium.
