FC BARCELONA TIES VERMAELEN FROM ARSENAL FC

FC Barcelona continue signing players & securing up their defence for the upcoming season. The Spanish Football Club has come to an agreement with English Premier League Club Arsenal FC to transfer Belgium defender Tomas Vermaelen.

Local media sources comment that the player could be arriving over to Barcelona in the next hours, while other media sources say that Barça still has to shut terms with the actual player before any official announcement or move.

Already some have questioned the signing of the 28 year old defender. Tomas Vermaelen suffered a serious Achilles Heel injury seasons back which has halt his progression. The player has spent more time out injured than playing, in fact at Arsenal the defender played a secondary role. The Barça medical team will have to look closely at the players injured area & be sure that it wont cause head-aches in the future. 

The pressure on Barça to sign a competent defender & the "shortage" of Central Defenders available on the Football market has made Barcelona sign perhaps "impulsively". In any rate the Belgium International will need some time to adapt to the Barça way of playing Football & to the language, thus the "defensive solution" may take time.

Stay tuned for an official announcement soon.
