Must or Not? Barcelona’s Signings From Arsenal Over The Years, With Vermaelen.

It wouldn’t be a summer transfer window without Arsenal and Barcelona doing business of some kind, would it? With the Gunners turning the tables on their illustrious rivals earlier this summer with the superb £35m signing of Alexis Sanchez, order has been restored now with the Catalan giants over-paying for a mediocre member of Arsene Wenger’s squad in Thomas Vermaelen.

Arsenal fans will be delighted to get around £15m for a player in the final year of his contract, who had gone horribly off the boil at the Emirates Stadium after falling behind Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny in the defensive pecking order, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Belgian international became the latest player to flop after swapping north London for Catalunya.
