Thomas Vermaelen is set to complete his transfer from Arsenal to Manchester United, according to fresh reports.
According to Matt Law of ‘Telegraph’ newspaper, Arsenal are set to sign young Southampton defender Callum Chambers as a replacement for Vermaelen, who’s move to Old Trafford is all but done.
Despite Chambers being a right-back for Southampton, Arsene Wenger believes he could play as a center back once he’s matured and see’s him as the ideal cover for Mathieu Debuchy and the outgoing Vermaelen.
With Chambers’ transfer set to cost Arsenal upwards of £10M, it’s expected that Vermaelen will move to Manchester United in a deal worth approximately £12M.
A deal hasn’t yet been agreed between the clubs, but with Arsenal having nearly wrapped up a replacement for the Belgian negotiations should accelerate.
