From Spain: Vermaelen close to Roma

John Solano

Belgian defender Tomas Vermaelen will be the next to leave Barcelona, claims Sport, and his next destination is likely to be Roma.

The arrival of Samuel Umtiti coincides with the likely sale of the ex-Arsenal man. Today, the most likely options are Inter and Roma. Both clubs are determined to gain the services of Vermaelen, who Barca will release for €10 million, a figure which, so far, has not arrived from Inter or Roma, both of whom have tabled €8 million bids. However, the Giallorossi remain vigilant and are the favorites.
