Everton Considering Thomas Vermaelen Move


Belgium defender Thomas Vermaelen could make a Premier League return this summer, three years after leaving Arsenal for La Liga giants Barcelona.

The 31-year-old Belgium international failed to establish himself as a first-team regular at Camp Nou which he will have a string of unfortunate injuries to blame for. He spent the last year on loan at AS Roma, but mere nine Serie A appearances were insufficient to make Giallorossi consider making a permanent move for him.

With his future currently in limbo and clearly out of Ernesto Valverde’s plans for next season, Thomas Vermaelen has emerged on Everton radar with Ronald Koeman reportedly keen to add the experienced defender as an option to the left side of his defensive line at Goodison.

Koeman is currently pondering a possibility of making an approach for the Barcelona defender, but there is nothing concrete at this stage.
