As Arsenal have been named as one of the main competitors for the signing of Arthur Vermeeren, they aren’t forgotten in an update from TuttoMercatoWeb on the chase for the player.

The Italian outlet features a fresh story to talk about Napoli’s interest, claiming the Serie A side are very keen on adding him to their midfield.

The website then says there are many clubs watching him closely, and Arsenal is one of them. The Gunners are said to be ‘ready’ to put €15m ‘on the table’ for his signing.

Mikel Arteta’s side don’t seem to be in pole position, though, as it’s ‘first of all’ Barcelona who are chasing the midfielder.

Another problem for Arsenal is that €15m may not be enough to convince Royal Antwerp, at least not in the January transfer window. According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Belgian side want €25m to sell in the middle of the season.

It’s only at the end of the season that the club may analyse other offers, although the Euros may have pushed his price up by then.
