Manchester United are looking at long term options to strengthen the midfield and the latest name in the lime light is that of Arthur Vermeeren.
As per an exclusive story covered by Football Insider, Man Utd are readying the groundwork for a mega-money deal to sign the Belgian international from Antwerp.
The news source have mentioned that the Red Devils are all over the youngster and in consistent contact to ensure they hire his services.
It is reported that Antwerp value their prized asset at £50million but Man Utd can agree an initial fee of £25million to sign him.
Arthur was a key member of the Belgian club’s squad that won the Jupiler Pro League title in the last campaign.
The 18-year-old midfielder made 18 starts in the league and helped the team keep no fewer than 13 clean sheets.
In the current season, he provided 2 assists in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk and netted the opening goal of the game in the 3-2 win over Spanish champions, Barcelona.
Overall, Arthur, who can effectively play int he DM and CM positions has directly contributed in 8 goals (2 goals and 6 assists). He has already earned two caps for Belgium.
Ten Hag needs to shakeup things in the center of the park with Casemiro and Eriksen past their primes and summer signings, Mount and Amrabat, failing to shine.
