Arthur Vermeeren of Royal Antwerp has apparently been mentioned by Barcelona as a potential Sergio Busquets replacement.
Remember how Busquets declared he would leave Barcelona at the end of the current campaign?
Vermeeren is one of the six players whom Gerard Romero, a Spanish journalist, believes Barcelona can use to replace Busquets.
Romero asserted on his Twitch channel that Barcelona was interested in signing the 18-year-old, who is also a target for Manchester United this summer.
“Arthur Vermeeren, an 18-year-old Belgian player currently playing for Royal Antwerp FC in Belgium’s top division, is the name that enters the list of players as possible replacements for Busquets for the sporting direction of Barça.”
Apart from Vermeeren, Romero added that the likes of Ruben Neves, N’Golo Kante, Sofyan Amrabat, Martin Zubimendi and Guido Rodriguez are the other targets for Barcelona.
Vermeeren’s contract with Royal Antwerp will expire in 2026.
