Man Utd lining up surprise move for Arsenal defender?

Vermaelen linked with the Red Devils

Manchester United are reportedly keen on securing the services of Arsenal's out-of-favour centre-back Thomas Vermaelen in the summer.

The talented Belgian international who joined the Gunners from Dutch champions Ajax in the summer of 2009, has failed to cement his place in the starting lineup following the excellent defensive partnership of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny this season.

According to SportsDirect News, the Red Devils boss David Moyes will make a move to sign the Belgian centre-half in the summer, as he aims to find a suitable replacement for outbound club captain Nemanja Vidic.

The 28-year-old has scored 15 goals in 140 appearances for the North London outfit so far.
