According to the tabloids, Serie A side Inter Milan are in pole position to snap up the Arsenal defender in January.
The Italian outfit have been on a downward spiral over the last few years, but they’re currently fourth place in the table and have been reinvigorated by a recent takeover by Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir.
The media mogul is reportedly planning on a January spending spree, with Vermaelen one of his priority targets.
With Inter’s fate in terms of Champions League qualification for next season by no means certain however, the Arsenal defender will be hoping the Milan outfit aren’t his only suitors in the January window.
According to the tabloids, Inter already have an £8million bid in the pipeline.
