Gunners stopper keen to sort out future.
Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is set to meet with the club in a bid to sort out his future following increasing interest in his services from Manchester United, Sky Sports reports.
United are keen to step up their interest in the Belgian international, who has just a year remaining on his deal at the Emirates Stadium.
Vermaelen is currently still in possession of the captain’s armband at Arsenal, though last season he was relegated to making just seven appearances in the Premier League after injury meant that he was unable to force his way ahead of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.
Arsenal are believed to be keen on offering the 28-year-old fresh terms, but are aware that he is likely to move on from the club this summer, bringing an end to a five-year spell.
Now following Belgium’s departure from the World Cup finals, Vermaelen is turning his attention to his future.
“I really do not know where I will play, Arsenal or elsewhere next season,” he said.
“All my attention went to the World Cup. I will see when I talk with Arsenal.”
Vermaelen would leave the club having made 150 appearances, scoring 15 goals.
