Arsenal have made a move to buy back Thomas Vermaelen from Barcelona.
Sport says Arsenal have tabled a bid for Vermaelen, with Barca now mulling over the offer.
The Gunners are desperately short at the back, with Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny currently unavailable.
Francis Coquelin recently sparked fears he would be deployed as an emergency centre-back with a comment on the club’s official SnapChat feed.
Arsene Wenger signed Vermanelen from Ajax in 2009 for around £10million and he quickly endeared himself to the Emirates faithful — earning the nickname Verminator — with his impressive performances and eye for a goal, reports The Sun.
