Arsenal and Ajax have agreed a fee for Thomas Vermaelen said to be in the region of around £10,000,000 and as such Arsenal have been given permission by Ajax to hold talks with Thomas Vermaelen and his agent, Sören Lerby. It is believed that Vermaelen rejected Arsenal’s first contract offer but Lerby claims that talks will continue throughout the course of the week.
Lerby in Dutch sports magazine Sportweek states:
“We’re in talks with Arsenal at the moment.”
“There’s nothing strange going on. We’re continuing conversation with Arsenal this week. Thomas is open for the transfer, of course”
