So once again another Arsenal player looks set to leave North London to join a rival club.
The word on the rumour mill today is that Lous van Gaal wants Vermaelen to replace Vidic at centre back next season when the Dutchman takes over following the World Cup.
And unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans aren’t too happy with the news.

Gunners faithful took to Twitter today to express their opinion on the Belgian’s shock decision – and most of them weren’t positive.
Vermaelen another wanker yawn yawn

Arsenal transfer window so far. Sanga joins City, Vermaelen looks set for UTD, Cesc joins Chelsea and Cazorla want out. Standard for us.

Vermaelen to United. Fabregas to Chelsea. Sagna to Man City. This is quite amusing actually. Now who should we sell to Liverpool? ???
