The most recent name to come back into the Barcelona rumor mill is Thomas Vermaelen.
The Arsenal defender has long been on Barcelona’s radar and may be the next Gunner to make the switch to the Camp Nou. La Blaugrana is in desperate need of a defender and they believe Vermaelen may fit the bill.
Vermaelen was reportedly linked to Barcelona by The Mirror.
According to the report, Vermaelen has already been scouted and pegged as one of the top choices in their pursuit of a new defender. Arsene Wenger will have his hands full this summer trying to hold on to the Belgian star.
However, with all the possible defenders that the Catalans could bring in, do not expect Vermaelen to put on the Blaugrana jersey next season. This transfer rumor holds truth, but it is not one that will come to fruition.
