Belgium has just endured a tough campaign in the capital.
Arsenal are prepared to offload club captain Thomas Vermaelen this summer in a cut-price deal, says the Sun.
The Belgium international has been at the Emirates for four years now after joining from Dutch giants Ajax on a four-year deal worth 12 million euros in June 2009.
And initially, the defender made a huge impact in north London for Arsene Wenger’s side, so much so that the Frenchman even made the 27-year-old the Gunners skipper following the controversial departure of front man Robin van Persie to arch-rivals Manchester United last summer.
However, due to a combination of both a loss of form and a series of niggling injuries that the highly-rated centre back suffered in the last campaign, Wenger is understood to now be willing to listen to offers in the region of only £5m for the player when the transfer window opens on 1 June.
Vermaelen made just the 29 top-flight appearances for the club last season, and only 39 in total in all competitions, but he is unlikely to be short of offers for his services though.
