Thomas Vermaelen is understandably frustrated at a lack of playing time, but his performances over the past year have left a lot to be desired. In his absence, the partnership of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny has blossomed into the most stable centre-back pairing Arsenal have had in years.

Should he be sold, here are FIVE options who fill his boots.
