Manchester City are reported to be monitoring the status of Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen as a preparation to making a summer move.
Manchester City are reportedly keeping tab on Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen for a possible summer transfer
The Belgium international spent the majority of the ongoing season on the bench, struggling for form while teammates Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen are proving to be formidable partners in the heart of defence.
He only managed to get the starting nod seven times in the Premier League and only once in the Champions League, usually filling in for unavailable or injured starters.
The Sky Blues have raided on the Emirates in the past few years, with Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri moving to Eastlands.
Meanwhile, City skipper Vincent Kompany will suggestedly play a part in persuading his compatriot to play alongside him in England's top-flight, as they do in the Belgian seniors squad.
